Questions related to Mental Health
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?

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?

Say I am interested in how mental health changes in a ten-year period using a Linear Fixed Effect Model, would it be possible to control for changes in demographics over years (e.g., income) or should I just use demographics in the first year as co-variate in the model?
Insomnia is a form of sleep disorder. Having difficulty in sleeping may increase the symptoms of mental health problems. What are the common causes, effects and probable cure for insomnia? Sharing is caring. Thanks!!!
Educational field mission awareness is a main aspect of professionalism as well as requirement for overall well being of job practitioner. It is vaque and because school inprovement culture us rare it is often though as reduntant. Professional commitment refers to applying lesson plan theory and LP preparation and focus on student-teacher relationships.
Is there any research on the mental health status of pre- and post-doctoral researchers and/or academic staff with samples from Germany? I have a hard time finding papers on the topic, so if you have any suggestions regarding articles (or even search strings for specific databases or search engines), I'd be very grateful!
I have a number of variables where data has been collected via Likert style scales;
* 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.
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 :)
Can anyone advise how covid 19, corona virus. has impacted on the mental health needs of known service users as well as the wider population in Italy and Spain?

When I discussed some people who once suffered from Coronavirus, they reported some sort of memory loss. I was surprised to know this. Are there any other reported eveidences revealing any type of memory loss in covid suggered people. Kindly share.
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.
Please, do not hesitate to contact me in case of any further queries.

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!
I am interested in how mental health evolves over a 10-year period (N=10000). My analysis plan is to first factor out age, gender, and other demographics in each wave, then take these residuals into a liner model with years as predictors. Does it sound sensible to do so?
I'm investigating the affects the pandemic has and is currently having on the breast cancer survivor community. I have 15 participants and collected data on basic demographics, mental health (HADS), social isolation, social support, physical activity levels (IPAQ) and sedentary behaviour (average sitting time).
I want to analyse the if mental health is linked to the other variables and what relationship it is (lower physical activity leads to great symptoms of anxiety and depression as an example). 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.
I'm considering using Kruskal-Wallis Test however i would then have to convert some of my variable to categorical data. Is this the correct choice of statistical test or is there an alternative to this?
Hi dear all!
I am looking for idea for my final year project in psychology. I want to be a clinical psychologist, so the dissertation topic needs to be more relevant to mental problems. I am mostly interested in psychological resilience, motivation, and depression. You can tell me any idea apart from those interests! Thanks!
The objective of my research is to find out the relationship between the level of mental health status and quality of life. I am using PHQ-9 to test level of mental health status and WHOQOL-BREF for quality of life. The problem is, whoqol-bref only have score for 4 dimensions separately and since there's no total score for WHOQOL-BREF, I am confused on how to find the relationship between the two variables. Is there any possible way to correlate them?
I will be grateful if you could share with me the screening tool that you use in your diabetes clinic to screen for any mental health problems among children and young people live with T1DM.
Thanking you in advance
All the best
I can see how pandemic has impacted creative abilities of both young and adult learners, by creating isolation from learning. It had negative effects on physical and mental health of students.

The subject of musicians mental health and illnesses is very poor documented in my country. I intend to address this in a research paperwork (type and incidence of self reported mental illnesses and main favoring factors).
Please if you can spare some time to suggest some sources (books, articles, studies, reviews, researches) for better understand the main approach.
I am in desperate need of some basic stats help. I am looking at SF36 data for QOL between 2 groups (patient group and healthy group) at a single time point (cross-sectional design). Some of the variables within the SF36 are not normal (ie. social functioning and role limitations emotional) however, the rest are normally distributed (ie. Physical function, role limitations physical, vitality, mental health ect.). What statistical test do I use? Do I need to use T-test for the normally distributed parts and Mann Whitney U for the not normally distributed parts? OR do I use Mann-Whitney U for all of them as they are under the same umbrella SF36 outcome variable?
This is for a PhD-level Quantitative Research class, and I am confused over what test to run on the G*Power software.
It has to be an a priori, but would it be bivariate normal modal, multiple regression, t-test, etc...)
Do I need to determine the variables that will be measured, (depression, anxiety, obesity, etc...) before doing the test?
Dear colleagues in the filed of psychology and similar disciplines,
Do you know some open call for cross-cultural project regarding post-COVID effects (or what is happening after the 2 years of pandemic) on various aspects of mental health (life satisfaction, stress, anxiety, optimism...), emotional status, interpersonal relationships, risky behavior, conspiracy theories and other beliefs, etc.?

The idea of energy seems to be something that I clearly do not understand yet at the same time it is all around us. It seems people react to different "energies" and react angrily or react happily and a lot of times, especially here at Landmark College in Vermont, there is a lot of people who consider others intimidating and begin to fear them. It comes to the point that how do people actually react to "energy" but not the exact physical actions of someone else? The ideas of telepathy and energy, although considered a pseudoscience, has been shown in the works of Dr. Ian Stevenson worked deeply into, should we openly accept the idea of metaphysical energy that seems to have an evidently deep impact on people?
I have been unable to locate a scale that addresses substance use/addiction stigma or bias in mental health care providers. I have only been able to locate substance use stigma measures for individuals with substance use disorders.
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?
Kindly could I have your opinion on the relationship between the psychological condition of the researcher and his/her academic life?
Does it really influence? Yes/No
What are available research studies?
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.
Can someone share experience of conducting an online test for college students in mass (by college or NGOs) with an objective of identifying depression or Bi-polar probables? Does this work? Which test is used?
Dear mental health worker and/or clinical researcher,
In response to the article Case Report Evidence for Underregistration of Suicide.
We wonder if there are more examples, among colleagues, for evident suspicion that a person has died by suicide but registered as other cause in the national mortality registration?
Maybe we can collect more cases for more evidence?
Of course evidence for overregistration is also needed!
I was wondering if anyone knows of a database containing nationally representative information on individuals with depression, anxiety, or any other measurable mental health outcome. The data I am looking for should be related to the United States.
Any help in this matter is appreciated.

I have conducted research looking at employee satisfaction with how employers handled their employees mental health during the initial phases of the Covid-19 pandemic. I sent out questionnaires to employees that measured three different scales, mental health knowledge, general wellbeing and employee satisfaction.
I am interested in looking at the comparison between all the scales. For example, employees overall knowledge compared to their satisfaction. I would like to compare each scale to the other two. 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!
Hello! I am conducting a research study to understand the experiences of therapists, mental health counselors and practitioners in the field of mental health in providing services virtually. For this, I need responses and insights from professionals practicing in India to fill out a very brief questionnaire.
If you are/know such professionals, please reach out! It'd be a huge help.
(suggestions on how I can reach professionals are more than welcome, this is my first independent research and I would appreciate any type of guidance!)
I conducted a survey that aimed to compare the state of mental health during the first and third wave of the pandemic in Poland. In the first part, 442 participants took part, and in the second part 570 respondents. Unfortunately, only 7% of respondents took part in both parts of the study. Despite this, is it possible to compare the two groups in terms of differences in mental health status in the study population?
I would appreciate any suggestions!
My Research topic is related to mental Health so I'm looking for journals focusing on this area. Journals should be those with high acceptance rate plus pubmed indexed and fast review process.
I would highly appreciate If people could help. Thanks in advance!!
I have found the PAM but that doesn't focus on mental health. I have also found SESP, AQoL, SQoL-18, LQoLI, and ICF Checklist, but none of these seem to focusing on empowering clients and assessing this and their participation. Thanks in advance!
An evolution has taken place over a number of years as we've progressed from predominantly web based interventions for mental health to mobile apps . There have also been a number of VR interventions in recent years but where next?
As we know that mental health remains undebated and unattended due to social stigma associated. The pattern of trauma in conflict zones is worrying due to rise in anxiety, PTSD, and suicides from past few years. Understanding and adapting mental Machine learning can open new ways for early diagnosis of mental health.
What are your views regarding the same. Can ML BE beneficial in psychiatry?
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?
If I want to know how many Americans have certain mental health concerns and if that proportion is increasing or decreasing, what would be (a) A focused research question using PICO (b) What study design should I choose and why? Why not one of the other designs?
I have done a fair amount of well-cited research in the early 2000 period on Entrepreneurial Learning.
I am now interested in psychology, early childhood experiences and the mental health aspects of entrepreneurs and how
1. It could lead to a disposition to become an entrepreneur
2. The push-pull factors related to early childhood or lifelong experiences
3. Should we account for psychological make-up in match entrepreneurs to mentors?
4. How can we support entrepreneurs through critical incidents in their business that triggers underlying psychological distress
In all, I am keen to understand the research existing around entrepreneurs, learning and cognition, emotion and behaviour.
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?
Hi, this is Manjari here. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Christ University. My research is titled “Development and Testing the Efficacy of a Mental Health Awareness and Destigmatisation (MHAD) Program among Adolescents.” I would use a mixed-method approach. From mental health professionals in Bangalore, the first qualitative phase will involve gathering insight into adolescents' mental health needs and duration, mode, and strategies of anti-stigma interventions among adolescents. For this purpose, I have created a schedule for interviews and am looking for suggestions from academicians, researchers, and practitioners for validating my interview schedule. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have recently completed my MA: Education with Leadership and Management. From this, I have developed a passion for mental health and wellbeing, specifically in psychological and social factors. I see this through the lense of a primary educator, and want to connect with link-minded individuals with the same interest. I would appreciate anyone who can help point me in the right direction.

'Hospital Vandalism' by patients and care takers / relatives has been very common in Nepal. There has been a blaming game to each other - doctors and patient parties. Are there academic studies about this topic, and its cause and the areas of improvements?

I'm currently working on a systematic literature review involving the impact of the pandemic on the mental health of students (not the exact topic for confidentiality purposes). All of my included articles are cross-sectional surveys, and I'm not sure what tool is best to assess the risk of bias for these studies?
I am a clerkship-level medical student myself and I am interested in the following:
- Perhaps a cross-sectional descriptive study conducted via online survey on the mental health status (anxiety; burnout for volunteers) of both pre-clerkship and clerkship-level medical students? It's been a month into Extended Community Quarantine in my locality and this might be a good opportunity to conduct such study.
- This might provide a basis for future studies and might influence policy-makers into integrating mental health programs during times of crises.
I was wondering what the greater psychological community would suggest for tools for evaluating the current state of mental health quality in communities? Here in Canada there are some government-created surveys. But I find them lacking in specificity (no objective definitions and terms that are open to interpretation) and are more focused on open answer questions - which makes analysis difficult. Any suggestions?
