WHO | Global health workforce, finances remain low for mental health

14 July 2015 -- Worldwide, nearly 1 in 10 people have a mental health disorder, but only 1% of the global health workforce is working in mental health. This means, for example, that nearly half of the world’s population lives in a country where there is less than one psychiatrist per 100 000 people.

Outpatient psychological therapy for adults with anorexia | Cochrane

Anorexia nervosa is a severe and disabling mental health disorder of self starvation. In the general population the lifetime prevalence of anorexia nervosa may be as high as 5 in 100 women. About one in 10 people with anorexia nervosa is male. Psychological therapies are the main treatment and most people are treated as outpatients. A number of different types of therapy are used, from dynamic (where past issues are explored) to very directive cognitive-behavioural therapies (where specific advice is given and people are required to keep records of their eating behaviour). It is important to know which psychological therapy is most likely to help people recover. This review aimed to assess evidence about the effects of individual psychological therapy (therapy provided to one person as opposed to a group) delivered in outpatient settings to older adolescents and adults with anorexia nervosa.

In brief

NICE backtracks on plan to publish safe staffing guidance: The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has abandoned plans to publish guidance for hospital emergency departments on safe nurse staffing. NICE had previously said that it would publish the finished work along with four evidence reviews of safe staffing in other settings, including mental health settings and community nursing. However, it has now said that it will not make the information available, to avoid pre-empting future work on safe staffing by the new regulator NHS Improvement (formed by the merger of Monitor and the Trust Development Authority).
