    Number of US outpatients receiving psychotherapy alone fell by 34 percent
    The New York Times
    In the U.S., from 1998 to 2007, the number of patients in outpatient mental health facilities receiving psychotherapy alone fell by 34 percent, while the number receiving medication alone increased by 23 percent. This is not necessarily for lack of interest. A recent analysis of 33 studies found that patients expressed a three-times-greater preference for psychotherapy over medications. The problem is psychotherapy has an image problem. Primary care physicians, insurers, policy makers, the public and even many therapists are largely unaware of the high level of research support that psychotherapy has.

    Providers bracing for surge of new patients seeking mental health care under the federal health law
    The Wall Street Journal
    A burgeoning effort is underway to integrate psychiatric care into primary-care practices, in a bid to make more efficient use of a limited number of mental health professionals. Providers are bracing for a surge of new patients seeking mental health care under the federal health law, and some are using new ways to deliver more care to more patients at less cost.

    EAP Career Central jobs attract over 3,000 views a month
    Employee Assistance Professionals Association
    EA job seekers have received the message loud and clear: If you want to find a job in employee assistance, EAP Career Central is the place to look! During the past month, EAPA's dedicated job listing service received almost 3,500 views. "There is no better place to find EA job opportunities all over the world," explains Marina London, the EAPA staff member who manages the job board. "Job seekers can post their resumes confidentially, so only legitimate employers can view them. On the employer side, employers know that the people viewing their jobs are likely to be experienced professionals who understand the specialized EA body of knowledge, so they are enthusiastic about posting with us." As if that weren't enough, during the 2008 economic downturn EAPA made the decision to post other related positions, including those in HR, social work, psychology and counseling, to serve EAPA members even more comprehensively.

    More than suicide — mental disorders are risk factors for accidental deaths
    Psychiatric News
    While much attention has been paid to the heightened risk for suicide in people with mental illness, it appears that accidental death is a greater danger to them than suicide is. This troubling finding has emerged from a large national population study headed by Casey Crump, M.D., Ph.D., a clinical assistant professor of medicine at Stanford University. The results were published recently in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

    Canada may be underestimating mental health statistics
    The Edson Leader
    It has been estimated that 1 in 5 Canadians in their lifetime and 1 in 3 each year will seek mental health care help but a Canadian mental health promotion facilitator says that number could be higher. "Not everybody asks for help, so the problem lies in that any stats we give are based on people that have asked for assistance," Trevor Haas said.

    Employers face challenges when dealing with mental illness at work
    The Richmond Times-Dispatch
    Employers are understandably confused as to when they can approach an employee about mental health issues, and when to stay away. In general, employers should wait for an employee to come to them when they need reasonable accommodations under the ADA. However, concerns about employee safety and obvious mental issues at work are different.
