I am currently doing research around mental health in the workplace and I aim to send out two questionnaires. One for line managers/HR staff and the other questionnaire to employees. My research is focused on the managers and also employee opinions, attitudes and perceptions of mental health and well-being in the workplace. so my questions are around how do employees rate their mental health policies and procedures including support programs and services available to them.
Within my surveys I am using likert scales and also open-ended questions. I plan on using thematical analysis for the qualitative part and SPSS for the likert rating scale questions.
I was just wondering if you have any guidance or tips on this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated?
Thank you

Answer
Out of the inquiry description, your investigation could be mixed methods research or a multimethod study. The former focuses on integration, and the latter aims for combination. Therefore, you should be clear on how you plan to use the quantitative and the qualitative parts of your probe. You might refer to the following article for helpful insights on the distinction.

  • The number of people looking online for help with their mental health increased significantly from 2019-2021. In 2021, over 5.4 million (N=5,441,125) people took a mental health screen, representing a nearly 500% increase over the number of people who completed a screening in 2019 and a 103% increase over 2020.
  • More youth are struggling with their mental health and are seeking support online. Forty-five percent of individuals in the U.S. who took a screen in 2021 were youth ages 11-17 – 16% higher than the average in 2019.
  • The largest increases in the percentage of people scoring positive from 2019-2021 were on the parent and youth screens, indicating a large increase in the percentage of youth experiencing emotional, attentional, or behavioral difficulties during the pandemic. There were also significant increases in the percentage of people scoring at risk for PTSD, severe anxiety, and psychotic-like experiences from 2019-2021.
  • Across all screens, 76% (N=3,177,747) of users in the U.S. scored positive or with moderate to severe symptoms of a mental health condition in 2021. This was a 2% increase over the average in 2019 and a 1% increase over the percentage of individuals who screened at risk in 2020.
  • The number and percentage of people screening with moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety remain higher than rates prior to COVID-19, and are particularly severe for youth and multiracial screeners. In total, 850,267 people in the U.S. took an anxiety screen in 2021, which was 422% higher than the total number of anxiety screens taken in 2019 and 56% higher than the number taken in 2020. Of the nearly one million people who took an anxiety screen in 2021, 79% (N=673,811) scored with symptoms of moderate to severe anxiety.

Since mental health is the most prominent issue in 21st century. Interdisciplinary approaches might be the prominent and potent field of research. How can we interrelate mental health issues with anthropology with references to anthropology? Are there any established practices followed by certain community and culture?
Relevant answer
Answer
Psychological anthropology is the study of psychological topics using anthropological concepts and methods. Among the areas of interest are personal identity, selfhood, subjectivity, memory, consciousness, emotion, motivation, cognition, madness, and mental health.
https://www.oxfordbibliographies.com/view/document/obo-9780199766567/obo-9780199766567-0124.xml A very close relationship is found between anthropology and psychology. Psychology studies the mental creations and behaviors of humans. Anthropology, on the other hand, is a holistic study of humans. There is a comparative study of human behavior and experiences.
Imo, the most exciting intersection is the history of madness, with respect to madness and civilization, e.g. rapid cultural change and mental health.

Relevant answer
Answer
Excellent question and also excellent answers that we are reading, blessings to all those attending this magnificent forum.
It turns out that there are inevitably morbodidactogenic relationships, that is inevitable.
The teacher attends his classes with a health identity, that is, a state of physical and mental health that gives him a state of mind and therefore, a specific state to be able to relate to others.
First of all it is about relationships with students, but if we talk about their relationships in the institutional context, it is known that it is also about a relationship with co-workers and a relationship with their bosses.
The state of health is decisive to have a good relationship with other people, that is, to the extent that we are happy and healthy, we will be in better conditions to be able to relate healthily with others, to be able to offer other people a friendly relationship constructive and satisfying.
It is necessary to know in advance that health, as the United Nations Organization has said since 1948, is not about the absence of disease. Health is a good physical, mental and social state.
It turns out that if the teacher is overwhelmed by mental and social problems, then it becomes very difficult for him to give a good education to his students.
It also turns out that as long as the teacher is prepared and in good spirits, he will be able to prepare a good class more successfully, with a good teaching activity the learning time of his students will pass happily, however, if the teacher prepares activities with little elaboration and attends to the classroom to earn a salary, then the students get distracted, get tired or finally in one way or another their students rebel and the class becomes hell.
It is a whole cycle explained multifactorially and in which the skill and health of the teacher influences, to a greater or lesser extent, to be able to function satisfactorily, to be able to be lovingly respected by their students, by the directors of the school, by the parents of families, as well as society in general.
A teacher who is respected and loved by the community in which he lives will earn a good social image. A good social image of the teacher is a source of encouragement, of self-satisfaction for the teacher himself, of self-affirmation at work:
These components of professional practice influence the mental health of the teacher.
A teacher with good mental health provides a better education to his students.
These analyzes are explained in more detail in the following link.

* 1 x Independent variable (Level of Imposter feelings) - Split into 2 x groups - High and Low scores
* 3 x Dependent variables (Level of procrastination, perfectionism and mental health)
* 1 x other variable (Sense of belonging).
Initially I was planning a 2x3 MANOVA and splitting the sense of belonging variable (as an independent variable) into two groups, based on a median split (high and low). However, I am wondering whether it is appropriate as sense of belonging doesn't affect the DV's, but rather, can affect the IV.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Rachael! From the information you provided, I would like to suggest that you might need to get your research question and research hypotheses at first place. Then you could consider which method of analysis will be suitable to address your RQ and test your hypotheses. From my experience, it might not be a good practice to propose statistical analysis without any RQ and hypotheses. Besides, you might also need to specify the rule how you split your data. Taking your IV for example, will the variable still be numerical (scores) or nominal (high/low) after the splitting? as the type of variable will affect the decision of which statistical analysis we can conduct. I hope this will help.

Hello,
I'm hoping someone might be able to steer me in the right direction.
I'm undertaking a research project looking at parents/caregiver's attitudes towards telemental health (TMH). Specifically, comparing 3 groups:
1. parents/caregivers who have a child/adolescent with a mental health diagnosis
2. parents/caregivers who have a child/adolescent without a mental health diagnosis
3. adults with no dependents
In addition to this, I want to understand how parents/caregiver's culture (CALD background) influences their attitudes towards future use of telemental health.
My survey questions will be based on parents/caregivers future attitudes toward using TMH.
I am stuck on selecting the correct statistical analysis to undertake. I am thinking some form of regression analysis, but not certain which one or if a regression is appropriate.
Thank you :)

Relevant answer
Answer
Rhianon Allen makes a very useful point. With a regression, you can define the effects that interest you. In this case, a) what is the effect of having children and b) does the presence of mental health issues have an additional effect over and above that of having children.
With an ANOVA, you end up asking if there's "some kinda" difference between the groups. You rarely encounter a situation where the's the best hypothesis that the current state of theory and evidence can come up with. Looking back on it, I don't think that in my entire life I've ever used an ANOVA in a published paper.

Dear distinguished colleague,
Recently we have started comparative global research that we have started recently on 'Students' perception on the Russia-Ukraine war 2022' (link to the website: http://www.covidsoclab.org/russia-ukraine-war-2022/), covering various economic and social effects of this war. The global comparative analysis helps us formulate the most useful recommendations for policymakers.
If you are interested in participating (as a contact person and a potential co-author of a joint paper, do let me know to give you further guidelines – see also research guidelines on the webpage: http://www.covidsoclab.org/russia-ukraine-war-2022/research-guidelines/). Your main task at this stage would be to motivate students from your institution (or wider in the country) to complete the online questionnaire by 30 April 2022 at the latest (here is only a preview link: https://1ka.arnes.si/a/60ee60a0&preview=on). When we have the results, we will analyse and compare them (between countries included in our study - then is a plan to prepare academic article(s) relating to different (e.g., economic and social aspects) of the Russia-Ukraine war 2022 together with the analysed results of our questionnaire survey). You will also receive data from your country/institution in order to deploy it in further research. The detailed dissemination plan will be finalised later according to the interests of international partners.
If your time is limited and do not allow you to fully join at this moment, we would kindly ask you if you could motivate and share a link with your students to fill out the questionnaire (please, do see a message and a link for students below) and we will be happy to provide you with the data/result/report for your institution.

Can anyone help with some points of confusion around the fine line that is post-structuralism and social constructionism? I am trying to settle on a theoretical position relating to constructionist epistemological perspectives of voice hearer experiences without going off on a subjectivist ontological tangent. According to MIcheal Crotty subjectivism and constructionism are distinct in thier ontological explanations of reality but does this neccessarily have to lead to distinct methodological approaches? I am interest in exploring the social discourses surrounding lived experiences of mental illness so it seems logical to settle on discursive psychology or critical discourse as it considers the social context of such experiences. According to the mentioned author however, I could be confusing my ontologies ? Am I overthinking this?
Thoughts greatly appreciated!
Relevant answer
Answer
The borderline between both approaches is the role and range of human agency,
with respect to the interplay of physical reality and human psychology (perception is everything, reality is nothing refers more to the constructionist explanation model, while psychological perception is limited by physical reality refers more to structuralist view, post or not). In terms of ontology, constructionism focuses more on communication, structuralism is more centered around consequences of human inter-action. A cybernetic approach is able to integrate both positions or viewpoints, e.g. in the tradition of Hv Foerster (Understanding Understanding).

I would have used multiple linear regression but my sample size is far too small and under initial checks the data is not normal and will need a non-parametric test.

Is there any possible way to correlate them?

The WHOQOL-BREF does not have a total score because quality of life is not a single dimension. Variables may show different relationships with the different domains of quality of life. So don't be in a rush to get a single outcome variable!

Mohammad A. Amleh , the idea that you can ignore the distribution of the underlying population if the sample size is 30 or greater has always been untrue, and has been bad advice at least since we've had modern computers that allow us to easily fit generalized linear models or conduct relatively complex nonparametric tests.
I present a quote from Rand Wilcox below.
Please don't continue to promote this antiquated advice.
Also note that while it's fair to summarize the central limit theorem as being about "sufficiently large random sample", it doesn't say anything about what sample size would be sufficiently large in a given situation. There's nothing magical about the number 30.

Three Modern Insights Regarding Methods for Comparing Means
There have been three modern insights regarding methods for comparing means, each of which has already been described. But these insights are of such fundamental importance that it is worth summarizing them here.
• Resorting to the central limit theorem in order to justify the normality assumption can be highly unsatisfactory when working with means. Under general conditions, hundreds of observations might be needed to get reasonably accurate confidence intervals and good control over the probability of a Type I error. Or in the context of Tukey's three-decision rule, hundreds of observations might be needed to be reasonably certain which group has the largest mean. When using Student's T, rather than Welch's test, concerns arise regardless of how large the sample sizes might be.
• Practical concerns about heteroscedasticity (unequal variances) have been found to much more serious than once thought. All indications are that it is generally better to use a method that allows unequal variances.
• When comparing means, power can be very low relative to other methods that might be used. Both differences in skewness and outliers can result in relatively low power. Even if no outliers are found, differences in skewness might create practical problems. Certainly there are exceptions. But all indications are that it is prudent not to assume that these concerns can be ignored.
Despite the negative features just listed, there is one positive feature of Student's T is worth stressing. If the groups being compared do not differ in any manner, meaning that they have identical distributions, so in particular the groups have equal means, equal variances, and the same amount of skewness, Student's T appears to control the probability of a Type I error reasonably well under nonnormality. That is, when Student's T rejects, it is reasonable to conclude that the groups differ in some manner, but the nature of the difference, or the main reason Student's T rejected, is unclear. Also note that from the point of view of Tukey's three-decision rule, testing and rejecting the hypothesis of identical distributions is not very interesting.

Mental Health Literacy (MHL) has been developed in many countries ending as a item asked in national state ruled questionaries (A. Jorm or B. Pescosolido), but I have not been able to see anything like that in Europe, something in Portugal (Loureiro in Coimbra), but nothing else. 
Is it any reasarch right now in development in Europe about MHL in general or specifically in Spain? Does any one has any clue?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello,
Mental health literacy is a very relevant topic and really not very extended in Spain.
From the University of Burgos (Spain) we have published the article "Análisis de los Programas educativos sobre alfabetización en salud mental. Revisión documental" that may be of interest to you.
In addition, in the bibliography you can find other relevant articles.

i am creating a qualitative protocol to understand the feelings and experiences of employees returning to work after experiencing mental health issues whilst working remotely. the return to work can be remote or in-person. but my question pertains to whether using grounded theory in conjunction with IPA would be appropriate? one of my research questions is understanding employees feelings of using a hybrid model of work flexibility. so that is why i thought including grounded theory would be appropriate but im not sure.
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree with Béatrice Marianne Ewalds-Kvist that IPA and GT typically emphasize different goals, so you should start by clarifying your research questions and purposes. Right now, it sounds like you want to work with prior theory, which would not be a good fit to GT.
In addition, the two methods differ with regard to how they handle coding, so you should also consider what combination of data collection and coding works best for you.

a chara Dr Remco: Thank you for your illuminating response. While trying urgently to complete the final chapter #17 of my draft text, I'm tempted to put on Pat Jennings' gloves (legendary Northern Ireland football goal-keeper) to collect & extend your metaphorical 'open-goal' reference. The Critical Suicide Studies Network, (CSSN) would argue that such an 'escape route' - the suicide option - for those sisters and brothers, miserably despairing & suicidal, is a construct built and maintained by a society (US modelled, conditioned, reinforced and rewarded) that ignores contexts, cultures, and dominant social/political systems, while enforcing a burgeoning, suffocating, coercive, individualistic psychological regime that fails so many 'patients'. My late brother (RIP) lost his 31 year-old life having become entangled in such an impersonal, pharmacological labyrinth. Dear Remco, have a look at the CSSN website: it could point to a different way of thinking about suicide for all of us. Slan Philip O'Keeffe PhD

Can anybody please give me advice on which tests are most appropriate to apply to the data on SPSS to interpret the findings asap.
Thank you in advance!

Answer
Respected Dana Scheriff, you have come up with an interesting question that requires our going back to basic comparison process. To understand the level of complexity hidden in your question, suppose a simple situation. During a difficult time, I indulged in some activities make them as different as possible. Suppose, hiking, reading and eating. Now, I want to compare them whether they are different from each other. In this supposed example, there is a possibility to compare time allocated to each of the activities. However, your case of comparing the values of these scales is far more complex than the supposed example.
You need to change your question a bit. You can compare different groups on the basis of these scales one at a time. For instance, you can compare the knowledge of mental health for male and female. The test in this instance will be independent samples t-test.
You can also think of using correlation or regression in this case, but comparing apple with rock would be difficult.
Yet, thanks for placing such a question.

I have a within subjects pre-test post test design experiment. The participants are mental health workers and scores of emotional intelligence are recorded before and after a night shift. I ran a paired samples t-test to compare means for pre shift and post shift scores. I would also like to explore the effects of additional variables (e.g.experience, job role and usual shift length, hour break was taken and nap length) on pre shift and post shift emotional intelligence scores. Would multiple regression be the best analysis to do this? And how would I attempt this?
Relevant answer
Answer
The simplest analysis would be a repeated measures ANOVA, with the repeated measures factor being defined by the emotional intelligence scores before and after a night shift. Yours additional variables can be added to the model as between-subject continuous variables (sometimes referred to as covariates in packages as SPSS), or as between-subject factors. The interactions of the repeated measures factor with the covariates or between-subject factor will let you know if the effect of occasion is different for different values of your additional variables.
One main problem with using this simple approach is that if there is attrition, then the cases analysed can only be those with complete data. If there is a substantial amount of missing data, then other more advanced procedures will need to be used to minimize bias (eg linear mixed models, multiple imputation etc).

With respect to the works of Israel Kirzner on entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs,
it is very reasonable to assume a huge impact of lived experiences, especially the 'need to find the gap' and 'to look around the corner', i.e. making from less more.
Kirzner was very outspoken in his many lectures (e.g. available on you tube) on entrepreneurship=if I would be an entrepreneur, I would not be here to give this lecture. Personally, I do think a very methodical life-style, monetary prudence and the ability to deutero- (open-multiple-loop) learning are basic life skills to be-come an entrepreneur.

2. if I have 200 respondent for a questionnaire of 25 items included in 4 domains ,on scale score from 0 to 5, so the lowest response will be 0 and the highest will be 125.which scientific way should I follow to make categorizations and why for example into three level (low, moderate or high)or just (weak or strong) or (very low ,low ,moderate, high, very high).
take resilience questionnaire for example highest will be 125
so can we say any score from 0 to 42 he has low level of resilience, from 43 to 84he has medium level of resilience, from 84 to 125 he has low level of resilience
3. that absolutely will be useless if there is categorization in the original questionnaire or not?
Relevant answer
Answer
Again, from a statistical perspective, it is best not to categorize/form groups and to rather use the variable/score as is, taking advantage of its (quasi-) continuous (metrical) scale level. Otherwise, you lose information. There are plenty of statistical procedures available for continuous variables and those are typically more powerful than procedures for categorical/ordinal variables.
Most categorization methods are also rather ad hoc/arbitrary (e.g., median or quartile split). A model-based approach that is less arbitrary is latent profile analysis (LPA), which allows you to identify latent groups based on continuous variables. Often, these groups come out as low, medium, high. However, LPA requires multiple continuous indicator variables.

I will be happy to provide any additional information you need. I would like to send you an email to continue our conversation. You can reach me at as.manjari@res.christuniversity.in.
Relevant answer
Answer
First, you should decide whether you would like to use a structured or semi-structured interview format. Both have their advantages but the advantage of the semi-structured interview is that it gives you the flexibility to explore topics and issues as they arise during the course of the interview whilst maintaining a consistent underlying structure.
Second, you should list the themes you would like to explore in your interviews and then generate a list of questions for each theme. Themes allow you to conduct thematic analysis of participant responses which is often used in qualitative research.
Third, you should then find three or so people who will help you to validate your measurement tool. One way is to give them a list of your interview questions and themes and ask them to match each question to the theme they think is the best fit to assess whether others agree with your pairing of specific themes and questions. You can also use this to obtain feedback and improve your surveys before using them in your study.
