Life on a waiting list: How do people experience and cope with delayed access to a community mental health center?

Scandinavian Psychologist, 2, e6. http://dx.doi.org/10.15714/scandpsychol.2.e6

Scandinavian Psychologist

The aim of this paper is to explore how people waiting for treatment at a community specialist mental health center experience the time between referral and the first consultation. Within a collaborative-reflexive framework, nine service users were interviewed about their experiences with waiting for treatment. Three main themes were identified: "Expectations about waiting", "The experience of waiting: Shortcomings and struggles with everyday issues", and "Coping with symptoms and challenges by being active and taking control". While waiting, informants actively relied on their existing daily activities and social networks to feel better. The coping strategies they developed may be valuable tools for service users and their therapists, and the strategies may represent important prognostic factors for recovery.

A Review of Modern Antidepressants' Effect on Neurocognitive Function

Current Psychiatry Reviews, Volume 5, Number 3, August 2009, pp. 164-174(11)

Current Psychiatry Reviews

The present paper reviews the current literature on modern antidepressants' effects on neurocognitive function. Today, it seems justified to state that SSRIs in general do not affect cognitive function. However, there exists some evidence that paroxetine is associated with a somewhat lower performance on neurocognitive tests than other sub-groups of SSRIs. Further, studies have consistently found sertraline to be better with regard to cognitive function compared to other SSRIs. There is a lack of studies assessing effects of RIMAs and α2-receptor antagonists on cognitive function. Some evidence suggests that the latter may have negative effects on cognitive function. Other studies suggest that reboxetine, bupropion and SNRIs may be more beneficial with regard to cognitive function than other antidepressants. However, the question whether these medications may actually improve cognitive function to a higher level than expected from improvement in depressive symptomatology, remains unclear. Clinical, social and emotional factors are important for cognitive function and these factors should always be taken into consideration when assessing effects of modern antidepressant therapy on cognitive function.
