    A Robust Method of Bipolar Mental Illness Detection from Facial Micro Expressions Using Machine Learning Methods

    Ghulam Gilanie1,*, Sana Cheema1, Akkasha Latif1, Anum Saher1, Muhammad Ahsan1, Hafeez Ullah2, Diya Oommen3

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.39, No.1, pp. 57-71, 2024, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2024.041535

    Abstract Bipolar disorder is a serious mental condition that may be caused by any kind of stress or emotional upset experienced by the patient. It affects a large percentage of people globally, who fluctuate between depression and mania, or vice versa. A pleasant or unpleasant mood is more than a reflection of a state of mind. Normally, it is a difficult task to analyze through physical examination due to a large patient-psychiatrist ratio, so automated procedures are the best options to diagnose and verify the severity of bipolar. In this research work, facial micro-expressions have been used for bipolar detection using… More >

    The Association between Physical Education and Mental Health Indicators in Adolescents: A Cross-Sectional Study

    Xiaoqing Hu1, Yan Tang1,2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 783-793, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.018332

    Abstract Objective: To explore the associations between physical education attendance and mental health indicators. Methods: Using data from the Global Student Health Survey, the frequency of physical education attendance, suicidality-related indicators, loneliness, bullying, and anxiety were all assessed using a standardized self-reported questionnaire. Multivariable logistic regression was used to estimate the association between physical education attendance and mental health-related indicators. Results: The study included 276,169 participants from 71 countries (47.3% males, aged 11–18 years old). After controlling for sex, age, food insecurity, close friends, physical activity, sedentary time, others’ help, and parents’ understanding, physical education attendance was not signifi- cantly associated… More >

    Pathways to Psychiatry Care among Children with Mental Health Problems

    Hisham A. Ramy, Soheir H. Elghonemy, Nesreen M. Mohsen, Safi M. Nagib*, Mohamed Y. Mohamed

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 539-550, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.020108

    Abstract Many children with mental health problems in Egypt, as in many other countries, do not receive the help they need. Investigating the pathways of care is crucial for the early detection and treatment of these children. This study examined referral patterns and the duration of untreated psychiatric illness of 350 children attending two urban clinical settings in Egypt. Diagnoses were made using the Kiddie Schedule for Affective Disorder and Schizophrenia for School-aged children present and lifetime (K-SADS-PL), Child behavior checklist (CBCL,) and the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale. For 46.3%, the most distressing symptom was behavioral problems. A delay in seeking psychiatric… More >

    Mental Illness Education through Stories of Lived Experience: Validation Review of the DoNOHarm Framework

    Debra Rickwood1,*, Kerry Thomas1, Patricia M. Brown1, Heidi Prowse2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.4, pp. 455-469, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.017613

    Abstract The lived experience of people with mental illness is a powerful way to promote mental health literacy and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. However, there is little guidance on how to do this safely. Mental Illness Education ACT is an Australian organisation that since 1993 has supported volunteer educators to share their individual stories of lived experience to school and community groups. In 2011, they developed the DoNOHarm Framework to assist volunteers to be able to talk about their experiences in a way that is safe for them and for their audience, a gap that they recognised in… More >

    Single-cell systems neuroscience: A growing frontier in mental illness


    BIOCELL, Vol.46, No.1, pp. 7-11, 2022, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2022.017680

    Abstract The development of effective treatments for psychiatric disease has been disappointing in recent decades given the advancements in neuroscience. Moreover, rising rates of mental illness such as addiction and depression compel scientists and physicians to discover novel and creative solutions. One such approach that has proven effective is systems neuroscience: A focus on networks as opposed to mechanism. Further, investigation at the single-cell and circuit level is likely to be fruitful in such endeavors as this resolution describes the functional psychopathology that allows for intervention.

    Mental Illness Disorder Diagnosis Using Emotion Variation Detection from Continuous English Speech

    S. Lalitha1, Deepa Gupta2,*, Mohammed Zakariah3, Yousef Ajami Alotaibi3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.3, pp. 3217-3238, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.018406

    Abstract Automatic recognition of human emotions in a continuous dialog model remains challenging where a speaker’s utterance includes several sentences that may not always carry a single emotion. Limited work with standalone speech emotion recognition (SER) systems proposed for continuous speech only has been reported. In the recent decade, various effective SER systems have been proposed for discrete speech, i.e., short speech phrases. It would be more helpful if these systems could also recognize emotions from continuous speech. However, if these systems are applied directly to test emotions from continuous speech, emotion recognition performance would not be similar to that achieved… More >

    Embracing and Growing as a Peer Support Provider: An Analysis of Participants’ Experience in a Peer Support Program Based on the Recovery Model of Mental Illness

    Su Yeon Kim1, Kyung Mi Lim2, Soo Jin Kim3, Go-Un Kim4, Boyoung Kim5,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.4, pp. 261-270, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.013279

    Abstract Peer support is an important factor in the recovery of persons with mental illness. Most studies have focused on the effects of peer support programs on participants rather than on the process of mental health recovery. This study was a qualitative analysis of the experience of participants in a peer support provider program based on the recovery model of mental illness in Korean communities. The participants were recruited through flyers, and interested candidates were screened to determine whether they met the eligibility criteria. The total number of participants in individual interviews was 10, comprising 5 males and 5 females. The… More >

    Translation and Validation of the Family-Focused Mental Health Practice Questionnaire-Japanese Version

    Rie Ueno1,*, Darryl Maybery2, Andrea Reupert3, Hirokazu Osada4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.2, pp. 59-69, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.011180

    Abstract Children of parents with mental illness are more likely to experience mental health concerns, compared to other children in the community. Thus, it is important mental health professionals identify and intervene appropriately in these families. To develop professional development activities, practice guidelines and organizational supports, it is important to first identify those practices that professionals employ and do not employ. Accordingly, a Japanese version of the Family-Focused Mental Health Practice Questionnaire was developed. In the first instance, the Questionnaire was translated into Japanese and disseminated to mental health workers in various Japanese settings. Based on 212 participants’ data, exploratory factor… More >
