Subjective and objective dimensions of quality of life in psychiatric patients: a factor analytical approach: The South Verona Outcome Project 4

Authors:
RUGGERI Mirella, et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 178, March 2001, pp.268-275.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

Explores the role of subjective and objective Quality Of Life dimensions and their cross-sectional and longitudinal predictors. The relationship between QQL, as measured by the Lancashire Quality Of Life Profile (LQL), and demographic variables, diagnosis, psychopathology, disability, functioning, affect balance, self-esteem, service use and service satisfaction was investigated at two points in time, using factor analysis and multiple regression techniques. Concludes that subjective and objective data are distinct types of information. Objective measures may be more suitable in detecting treatment effects. Subjective information is necessary to complete the QQL picture and to enhance the interpretation of objective data.

The field of child and adolescent mental health causes concern because of its implications for  client groups and the disparity between demand and available resources not just for young people but for adults too.  There are many questions in the minds of those charged with helping vulnerable children and their families: what is meant by mental health?; or should we be talking about mental illness instead?; what sorts of mental health problems do young people have?; what happens if they don’t get help?; how do non-specialists access advice and how can they help children waiting for specialist intervention?; what interventions are effective?; what do we know about outcomes and what are the prospects for children if they do not get appropriate help?  This cassette gathers information, from both research and practice, about the state of  current knowledge.

Going mad?: understanding mental illness

Authors:
CORRY Michael, TUBRIDY Aine

Publication year:

Place of publication:

One of the most alarming experiences has to be losing control over one's thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Everyone knows that if they lose control over the simple things, they are no longer running their lives. The fear of mental illness is not exclusive to high levels of anxiety and panic, although it is the commonest source. There are many symptoms that terrify people simply because they can't be explained - flashbacks to traumatic incidents, panic attacks, inability to concentrate or sleep. Psychological distress has a stigma that physical disease doesn't share. Well meaning suggestions are laced with judgement. Those who can't pull themselves together are thought spineless, lazy or weak. In this climate of achievement, success and money, who wants to employ someone who has had a 'nervous breakdown'? In this book,  the authors chart the course of psychological distress from the minor to the major, clearly documenting what happens and what doesn't. They aim to make mental illness understandable and inseparable from the experience of being human. And the question the attitude and behaviour of the medical profession towards it.

This booklet provides information for people who feel depressed or unhappy, or who have emotional problems they cannot sort out on their own.
