Book Description :

Over the past two decades technology has begun to play an important role in medicine. The synergy of technology and psychiatry now called, telepsychiatry or digital psychiatry, has helped increase treatment access, training and dissemination while reducing cost and stigma associated with mental health disorders. Most of what is known today in telepsychiatry is based on scientific research such as pilot studies, mid to large clinical trial and meta-analysis, which has been conducted in hospital and/or academic settings. Unfortunately, these studies only tell one side of the story, that of the scientists, doctors, clinicians, and professors without taking into account the experience of the patients. This lack of response has driven patients to search for answers independently and solve their own issues by designing simple and innovative ways to complement and treat their chronic and, sometimes, acute mental health conditions. Digital Psychiatry: Case Studies of Patient-Driven Innovations illustrates the clinical perspective of using technology to improve mental health of patients. A series of clinical cases how by modifying and adapting current available technological devices such as video games, apps, movies, and online videos can treat patient's psychiatric conditions. This book is a prime resource for researchers and clinicians who are trying to understand how to incorporate technology into treatment options for patients. Discusses how telepsychiatry can be used in a private setting Demonstrates how technological devices such as video games and apps are used as treatment options Includes both successful and non-successful patient cases Provides both clinical and patient perspective towards treatment

Book Description :

The Internet and related technologies have reconfigured every aspect of life, including mental health. Although the negative and positive effects of digital technology on mental health have been debated, all too often this has been done with much passion and few or no supporting data. In Mental Health in the Digital Age, Elias Aboujaoude and Vladan Starcevic have edited a book that brings together distinguished experts from around the world to review the evidence relating to this area. The first part of the book addresses threats resulting from the growing reliance on, and misuse of, digital technology; it also looks at how some problematic behaviors and forms of psychopathology have been shaped by this technology. This section reviews problematic Internet and video game use, effects of violent video games on the levels of aggression and of online searches for health-related information on the levels of health anxiety, use of digital technology to harm other people, and promotion of suicide on the Internet. The second part of Mental Health in the Digital Age examines the ways in which digital technology has boosted efforts to help people with mental health problems. These include the use of computers, the Internet, and mobile phones to educate and provide information necessary for psychiatric treatment and to produce programs for psychological therapy, as well as use of electronic mental health records to improve care. Mental Health in the Digital Age is a unique and timely book because it examines comprehensively an intersection between digital technology and mental health and provides a state-of-the-art, evidence-based, and well-balanced look at the field. The book is a valuable resource and guide to an area often shrouded in controversy, as it is a work of critical thinking that separates the hype from the facts and offers data-driven conclusions. It is of interest particularly to mental health professionals, but also to general audience.

Book Description :

For more than half a century, Thomas Szasz has devoted much of his career to a radical critique of psychiatry. His latest work, Psychiatry: The Science of Lies, is a culmination of his life’s work: to portray the integral role of deception in the history and practice of psychiatry. Szasz argues that the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness stands in the same relationship to the diagnosis and treatment of bodily illness that the forgery of a painting does to the original masterpiece. Art historians and the legal system seek to distinguish forgeries from originals. Those concerned with medicine, on the other hand—physicians, patients, politicians, health insurance providers, and legal professionals—take the opposite stance when faced with the challenge of distinguishing everyday problems in living from bodily diseases, systematically authenticating nondiseases as diseases. The boundary between disease and nondisease—genuine and imitation, truth and falsehood—thus becomes arbitrary and uncertain. There is neither glory nor profit in correctly demarcating what counts as medical illness and medical healing from what does not. Individuals and families wishing to protect themselves from medically and politically authenticated charlatanry are left to their own intellectual and moral resources to make critical decisions about human dilemmas miscategorized as “mental diseases” and about medicalized responses misidentified as “psychiatric treatments.” Delivering his sophisticated analysis in lucid prose and with a sharp wit, Szasz continues to engage and challenge readers of all backgrounds.

Book Description :

When it comes to mental health, no country is considered developed. In the last decade, the burden of mental health disorders (MHD) has risen in all countries due to disparities in timely diagnosis and access to evidence-based treatments. Additionally, scientists, are still conducting research to understand the underlying mechanisms behind MHD. Part of the problem is that measures of symptom severity are all based on self-reports by patients and clinician observation often resulting in an imprecise measurement of MHD. Those that are more objective (e.g. MRI) are costly and not widely available, nor are they ecologically valid measures of behavior. Additionally, in-clinic assessments tend to be episodic and often miss capturing the lived experience of disease over time including the potential impact of social and environmental factors that are suspected to be linked to neurodevelopmental and psychological processes. To improve long term outcomes in MHD, there is a critical need to develop new ways to objectively assess specific underlying constructs of behavior patterns linked with neuropsychiatric conditions. The pervasive network of smartphones offers researchers a unique opportunity to study MH at a population scale and at a fraction of the cost of traditional clinical research. The high-frequency daily usage of smartphones also provides new ways to capture the individualized momentary experience of living with mental health issues based on "real-world data" (RWD) in an objective, momentary and nonreactive way. The principal findings of this dissertation research show the feasibility of utilizing smartphones to reach, enroll and engage a diverse and nationally representative population as well as the potential of using RWD in predicting mental health outcomes. The RWD collected from more than 2000 participants showed notable inter-/intra-person heterogeneity highlighting the challenges of developing a robust cohort level machine learning model to predict depression. However, personalized N-of-1 models show the promise of "precision digital psychiatry" by assessing an individual's drifts from their own average "digital behavior" as a more reliable predictor of a person0́9s daily mood. Of note, participant enrollment and retention in large-scale digital health research studies remains a significant challenge. Cross study analysis using data from >100,000 participants showed significant underlying biases in technology access and utilization based on participants' demographics that could impact the generalizability of the statistical inference drawn. In addition, the results from a survey-based study on a large and diverse sample show growing concerns among the general public about the security and privacy of their digital data which if left unaddressed can negatively influence people's decision to participate and share data in digital health research. These findings are contemporary and extend the on-going efforts to objectively evaluate the potential fit of technology in psychiatry in engaging the general population to monitor their mental health in the real world outside the clinic. However, while the technology shows the promise to move the psychiatric research from subjective to objective measures, episodic to continuous monitoring, provider-based to ubiquitous and reactive to proactive care; accomplishing these goals does come with measurable challenges. Further research is needed to develop robust and validated digital biomarkers of behavioral health. This includes large scale behavioral phenotyping studies (N > 100,000) that are powered to detect the association between RWD and behavioral anomalies, the ability to integrate RWD across similar studies, improve equitable utilization of technology across a diverse and representative population and address people's concerns about data security and privacy.

Book Description :

This book explores the experiences of new fathers struggling with mental health difficulties and focuses on the role of digital media as part of their approaches to coping. Hodkinson and Das show how the ways new fathers are positioned by society can make it hard for them to recognize their struggles as legitimate, or reach out for help. The book explores a range of different uses of digital communication by struggling fathers, from selective forms of disconnection, to the seeking out of online information or support. The authors highlight the significance even of the smallest digital acts as part of coping journeys and outline the development of tentative or hidden attempts to reach out for help, and the potential for supportive digital interactions to emerge. The book’s conclusions highlight the agentic possibilities digital media might offer for struggling new fathers, while emphasizing the need for improvements in how they are prepared and supported by health services and others.
