A short scoping review of research into the effectiveness of supported housing and accommodation for people with mental health problems aimed at practitioners who work with people with mental health problems. For the review, searches were carried out on organisational websites and a range of databases, including Social Care Online, for UK based research published from 2000. The document provides an overview of the quantity and quality of the research and a table summarising the 20 studies reviewed with their key findings. It also provides a summary of areas identified for future research. The review finds that various models of community-based supported housing have been associated with a range of positive outcomes for people with mental health problems. These include: improved quality of life, more extensive social networks, social inclusion, reduced negative symptoms, increased participation in work and education, increased autonomy, improved self-esteem and happiness, reduced challenging behaviour, increased confidence, and relapse prevention. However, there is less known about the factors which lead to these outcomes and the characteristics that make the most effective types of support. (Edited publisher abstract)

Reports on the results of an online survey of 2,033 of British adults which asked about the role of social workers in providing support for people with mental health problems. The survey also asked about the type of support people thought social workers could provide for people with severe mental health problems and professionals involved in deciding whether someone could be detained under the Mental Health Act. Results included that only 41 per cent of those surveyed thought of social workers as important providers of mental health support, whereas 69 per cent identified psychiatrists and 65 per cent identified GPs.

Does forming implementation intentions help people with mental health problems to achieve goals? A meta-analysis of experimental studies with clinical and analogue samples

Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Objective: People struggle to act on the goals that they set themselves, and this gap between intention and action is likely to be exacerbated by mental health problems. Evidence suggests that forming specific if-then plans (or ‘implementation intentions’) can promote goal attainment and a number of studies have applied such techniques in clinical contexts. However, to date, the extent to which planning can help people with mental health problems has not been systematically examined. Method: This review used meta-analysis to investigate the effect of if-then planning on goal attainment among people with a DSM-IV/ICD-10 diagnosis (i.e., clinical samples) or scores above a relevant cut-off on clinical measures (i.e., analogue samples). In total, 29 experimental studies, from 18 records, met the inclusion criteria. Results: Excluding one outlying (very large) effect, forming implementation intentions had a large-sized effect on goal attainment. Implementation intentions proved effective across different mental health problems and goals, and in studies with different methodological approaches. Conclusions: Taken together, the findings suggest that forming implementation intentions can be a useful strategy for helping people with mental health problems to achieve various goals and might be usefully integrated into existing treatment approaches. However, further studies are needed addressing a wider range of mental health problems. (Edited publisher abstract)

Long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy in complex mental disorders: update of a meta-analysis

Authors:
LEICHSENRING Falk, RABUNG Sven
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 199(1), July 2011, pp.15-22.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is an umbrella concept encompassing treatments that include supportive-interpretive psychotherapeutic interventions. This meta-analysis focused on its use in complex mental disorders (defined as personality disorders, chronic mental disorders or multiple mental disorders). A literature search was used to identify relevant studies, and 10 controlled trial studies were identified as meeting the inclusion criteria, including psychodynamic psychotherapy lasting for at least one year or 50 sessions. The article discusses the analysis of the studies, including comparison of the effects of long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy with other forms of psychotherapy. The authors conclude that the analysis showed that long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy was superior to less intensive methods of psychotherapy in complex mental disorders, and that there were positive correlations between outcome and duration of therapy. They note that further research on long-term psychotherapy is needed.
