The ABPN published a memorandum and schedule in October 1996 providing information about board-certification testing through the year 2000.[8,9] The last written examination that may be taken without completing any formal addictions training, either a non-ACGME or an ACGME program (ie, the practice pathway), is scheduled for April 7, 1998. The regular application deadline for the April 1998 examination is September 1, 1997 and a second "late" application deadline, which will require an extra fee, is October 1, 1997.
After that examination, the next scheduled examination will be on April 4, 2000. The application deadline is September 1, 1999, and the "late" application deadline is October 1, 1999. Proof of successful completion of formal addictions training (either a non-ACGME or an ACGME program) will be required to take the examination. All examinations given after the year 2000 will require proof of completion of an ACGME-accredited addiction psychiatry residency.
In addition to the aforementioned practice or training program requirements, the physician must attain ABPN General Psychiatry Board Certification prior to taking the Added Qualifications in Addiction Psychiatry examination. Further information about the certification process can be obtained from the ABPN at: 500 Lake Cook Rd., Suite 335, Deerfield, IL 60015, 847-945-7900.
The Added Qualifications in Addiction Psychiatry status is valid for 10 years. After the 10-year period, the physician must successfully complete a recertification examination to maintain board-certified status.

PHOENIX, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- University of Phoenix College of Nursing has launched a new Master of Science in Nursing/Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (MSN/PMH) program preparing registered nurses (RNs) for advanced practice as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), specializing in neuropsychiatric care and treatment.
With a national deficit of psychiatric care which is particularly acute in rural areas, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners are helping to fill gaps in care.
“Our healthcare system has a critical need for nurse practitioners and mental health APRNs,” states Raelene Brooks, Ph.D., RN, dean of the College of Nursing. “The MSN/PMH program provides registered nurses the opportunity to advance their skill set and provide care and Boost outcomes for individuals and families with mental health needs. There are health disparities faced by individuals with mental health problems. This is an underserved population in our nation.”
Students earning an MSN/PMH gain skills such as neuropsychiatric disorder assessment and prevention, self-care management, psychotherapeutic intervention, pharmacological management, and addiction services. Students are equipped to treat mental disorders in various healthcare settings and in diverse patient populations.
Each MSN/PMH course is mapped to three skills and skills outcomes the students will learn. In developing the program, the University worked with labor market researchers to align in-demand skills that ensure students have the opportunity to learn and demonstrate them in coursework.
MSN/PMH curriculum is aligned with core competencies and accreditation requirements from these industry organizations: American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN); National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF); and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). Graduates of the MSN/PMH program are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) national board certification exam.
The MSN/PMH degree program requires prerequisites and a total of 52 credit hours to completion. Individuals who enroll in the MSN/PMH degree program are eligible for the University of Phoenix Nursing Bridge Program. The Nursing Bridge Program is designed for RNs that have a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field, and helps working nurses more quickly earn their MSN by taking three upper-level courses and then choosing the master’s path that best suits their needs.

A survey from Australian security services company Sekuro has found that more than 90 percent of cybersecurity professionals have reported mental health challenges over the past two years.
In its whitepaper, “Mental health in the Australian cyber security industry”, Sekuro surveyed 101 cybersecurity pros of varying levels of seniority across Australia - as well as a small number from other countries - between 31 March to 24 August 2022.
The survey found 91 percent of respondents reported experiencing mental health challenges over the past two years, and only 11 percent said they did not experience burn out due to the job.
More than half (51 percent) attributed their mental health struggles at work to poor culture and/or management styles, while 50 percent cited the high stress nature of the job.
Other challenges cited include being underfunded (41 percent) and a lack of required skills (37 percent) in the company or team.
Almost two in five (37 percent) of the respondents have also quit their jobs in cybersecurity in response to mental health issues, with nine percent deciding to change their career paths altogether. Citing a report from the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC2), Australia has 134,690 cybersecurity workers as of 2021, with Sekuro estimating that some 12,000 of them could have left the industry over the past two years.
“The results are saddening, yet unsurprising. Cyber security professionals were faced with unique responsibilities when it came to managing the technological fallouts of pandemics, wars, and accelerated digitisation. This has put increasing pressure on leadership to do whatever it takes to prevent attacks,” Sekuro managing director Noel Allnut said.
The survey also found that cyberattacks like ransomware and malware attacks are not the biggest worry among cybersecurity pros (35 percent), but rather unrealistic expectations from the board and executive leadership were a bigger worry for 44 percent of the respondents.
The other worries were data breaches (35 percent), a lack of cybersecurity understanding from the board and executive leadership (33 percent) and challenges associated with growing cybersecurity teams (26 percent).
Handing security pros more money also doesn’t solve their grievances, with the survey finding only 22 percent said a pay rise or promotion would help their mental health. The respondents cited the provision of more resources and tools, or more frequent opportunities to provide feedback to management would be more effective.
In the whitepaper, clinical counsellor and mental health educator Amber Rules said it was understandable that the stress and the strain of the past few years have resulted in many in the cybersecurity industry struggling with burnout and mental health challenges.
“Burnout is the result of ongoing and seemingly unresolvable occupational stress. It impacts many aspects of a person’s life, including their mental capacity, effectiveness and energy. It can also cause increased negative emotional experiences such as frustration, anger, overwhelm, negativity and cynicism,” Rules said.
“It can have very real impacts not just on a person’s work but also their life outside of the office. This contributes to the wider issue we’re seeing play out across the country with increased mental health challenges amongst Australians.”
Addressing cybersecurity professionals’ mental health
The survey found the most requested solution to Boost mental health in the workplace was more resourcing and tools to relieve pressure on staff (51 percent), followed by replacing managers who contribute to the poor mental health outcomes (34 percent).
Respondents said the top three ways they prevent or recover from poor mental health are by getting outside (66 percent), staying active (65 percent) and spending time with family and friends (61 percent). Some 48 percent said they were able to set clear boundaries at work to address mental health concerns.
For those that have reported mental health issues, 44 percent went to their managers to resolve the issue, and 24 percent of them said the concerns were adequately and promptly addressed. Some 37 percent said they quit their jobs, followed by seeking external counselling (37 percent), taking unscheduled leave (29 percent) and asked for a pay rise (15 percent).
Rules said, “It’s vitally important to seek support in difficult times. Whether this is a discussion with your colleagues, speaking to your manager or engaging with a mental health professional, the need to share and receive meaningful support is key to our ongoing wellbeing.
“Even if you’re the type of person who is self-sufficient and doesn’t experience workplace stress often, everyone needs, and benefits from, extra support from time to time. Prevention is always better than recovery.”
Allnut added, “The survey results clearly show how important a cyber-aware board and leadership team can be in reducing stress amongst their teams, and the need for managers to be better trained in how to address mental health in the workplace.
“If we don’t stand up and take action to Boost mental health in our industry we face losing more talent and worsening outcomes for everyone.”
The survey polled 101 cyber security professionals sourced through Sekuro's LinkedIn page, the company's customer database and community partners including ISACA Sydney Chapter, Cyber Risk Meetup and MySecurity Marketplace. Some 12 percent of the respondents were from outside Australia, including Singapore, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada.
The respondents were provided a $50 donation to a mental health charity of their choice per completed survey. Sekuro said it will donate $5,050 to mental health charities as part of the research, which will be split across Beyond Blue ($1600), R U OK? ($1900) and Black Dog Institute ($1550).
Mental health conditions—also called mental illnesses or mental health disorders—are wide range of conditions that affect a person's mood, thinking, and behavior. Millions of Americans suffer from mental health conditions, and a mental health diagnosis is nothing to be ashamed of. Here, you'll find resources pertaining to specific mental health conditions, along with support and treatment options.
Board of Education candidates discussed their views on Topics ranging from school safety to how to recruit and retain teaching staff Thursday night during an online candidates forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County.
All candidates running in the Nov. 8 nonpartisan general election participated except for at-large candidate Mike Erickson, who was originally on the list of participants. District 1 candidate Grace Rivera Oven participated but was absent for the first couple of questions.
Mike Erickson and incumbent Karla Silvestre are running for the at-large seat, Grace Rivera Oven and Esther Wells are running for the District 1 seat, Julie Yang and incumbent Scott Joftus are running for the District 3 seat and Valerie Coll and incumbent and current board president Brenda Wolff are running for the District 5 seat.
Questions for the forum were submitted by various sponsors, including NAACP-Montgomery County, Identity, Inc., American Association of University Women, METRO DC PFLAG, Asian Pacific American Advocates, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Chinese American Parent Association of Montgomery County, Montgomery County Progressive Asian American Network, ElevateHER and Asian American MOVE.
Here are some of the highlights of the night:
Like other districts around the country, Montgomery County Public Schools has struggled to fill teacher vacancies. Candidates shared different perspectives and ideas on how to recruit teachers.
Current board member and District 3 candidate Scott Joftus says he supports raising pay for all teachers as well as differentiating pay for special education and vocational education teachers.
“Those are the positions most difficult to recruit and it requires a lot, a lot more work and a lot of skill as well,” he said.
District 3 candidate Julie Yang said “business as usual is not going to resolve the issue,” and said it is important to assess why teachers are leaving the district and work to change those factors to both retain current teachers and attract new hires.
At-large incumbent Karla Silvestre voiced her support for programs to encourage current MCPS students to become teachers.
“I have been advocating for a robust “Grow Your Own Program” that recruits our own MCPS graduates to go into the field of education and come back and teach. At MCPS we launched a pilot this year with 15 students, and I hope to grow that to great numbers,” she said.
District 1 candidate Grace Rivera Oven expressed similar sentiments, saying it’s important to help support students who want to teach in MCPS to get their certification and training and to help provide training for specialized teachers such as special education.
District 1 candidate Esther Wells said she wants to ensure teachers are paid better so they will stay.
“We just need to stop the bleeding. We need to meet with our teachers, our support staff and understand what exactly they need and ensure that we are addressing those timely and right now. We ultimately need to fund our teachers,” she said.
District 5 incumbent Brenda Wolff, the current board president, said the district needs to find out why minority teachers in particular don’t stay, and work to recruit more minority staff. She also supports a differentiated pay scale for special education and other specialized teachers and addressing pay and the cost of living in the county.
District 5 candidate Valerie Coll, a former MCPS teacher, said the school system needs to listen to teachers.
“Teachers tell us why they don’t stay. They tell us about the demands of the job or how a system sets up unreasonable expectations. So one way to stop the bleeding is to actually listen to the educators and the staff that are in the buildings, and we can do that by making better climate surveys for staff and taking that information, taking that data to help inform us to stop that bleeding,” she said.
Oversight and accountability
When asked how the district and school board could work together for oversight and accountability, candidates addressed a variety of factors
, from communication to budgets.
“You’ve got to be more proactive
, instead of being reactive to so many situations that come up,” Coll said. She said it’s also important to make sure funding is going to students’ needs.
Wolff expressed a similar sentiment.
“We have been more reactive in the last two years dealing with crisis situations, and I think that we have to get back to being forward thinking and getting ahead of situations instead of behind them trying to fix them,” she said.
Joftus said it’s important to not only track progress, but to define key aspects of the implementation of key initiatives and make sure there is involvement through the process of different programs.
Yang responded to criticism she’s heard about the school system’s budget. “We must be good stewards of the money. I propose that the board has an independent researcher or financial analyst of its own,” she said.
Rivera Oven said there needs to be transparency and very clear checks and balances when it comes to how funds are being spent.
Wells said it’s important to have all MCPS auditors and data collectors working together.
“For me the first step in oversight and accountability is bringing all of these parties together so that we’re able to ensure our internal controls are working and community members feel comfortable and trust our system,” she said.
Silvestre noted that it’s important for the board to outline priorities for oversight and accountability in the district superintendent’s evaluation so the superintendent’s staff can respond to the board’s needs.
Policing in schools
Candidates expressed a variety of views about how to handle school safety when asked for their thoughts on policing in MCPS schools.
At the beginning of the 2021-2022 academic year, the county police department’s Community Engagement Officer (CEO) program replaced the former school resource officer (SRO) program. Under the SRO program, county police officers were stationed full time in high schools. The program was scrapped after criticism that it led to higher arrests among Black and Hispanic students and community calls for more emphasis on mental health resources than policing in schools. Proponents counter that the SRO program led to stronger relationships between police officers and the school communities. Under the CEO program, officers are allowed to be in a space near the front office of a cluster’s high school.
Wells expressed a desire to have police officers in schools, but said she does not think they should be involved in student discipline. “I believe that policing in our schools is an important partner in ensuring that we will eliminate any imminent threat from happening,” she said.
Rivera Oven said she does not support having police officers in schools and is concerned about data concerning SRO involvement with Black students and other marginalized students.
“Having SROs at schools is not the magic answer to all the issues of school safety,” she said.
Silvestre said there are opportunities for the police and the school system to collaborate and work together, but that it’s important to outline where police should maybe not be involved, including discipline.
Wolff said she thinks there are ways to work with the police.
“A community engagement program [with police] should be part of a comprehensive system of support that has to include mental health, wellness and preventative services,” Wolff said.
Wolff added that as a Black woman, she understands the concerns of people of color when it comes to policing.
Coll said it’s important to involve faculty who walk the halls every day and know the kids and their needs in school safety plans, and to include robust mental health services as part of school safety plans and services.
Yang said it is important to consider the concerns of Black and brown and disabled communities when it comes to policing. There are other ways to prioritize school safety besides having officers in schools, such as security technology and cameras, she said.
Joftus said he believes the school system has invested a lot of funding in school security but can continue to do better. He expressed a desire to focus more on better communication after exact incidents at Col. Zadok Magruder High School in Derwood and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Parents have complained about a lack of communication during a January shooting at Magruder that critically injured a student and a September lockdown at B-CC High after a student reported seeing a gun. No weapon was found.
“The feedback that we’ve been hearing is that we need to get better about our crisis notification so that parents, students and staff know what is happening as much as possible in real time,” he said.
A recording of the forum will be posted on the League of Women Voters YouTube channel.
Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S.—and for good reason. The tennis/ping-pong hybrid sport is fun, fast-paced and highly social, and it can be enjoyed at just about any age or skill level. The “all are welcome” nature of pickleball is a big draw as well—especially for older adults.
Research backs the benefits of this paddle-powered sport. A study of 153 older adults in the journal Leisure Studies found playing pickleball to be associated with lower levels of depression. It also confirmed that pickleball can support better hand-eye coordination, increase agility and coordination, and boost muscle strength and function .
Meanwhile, a 2018 study conducted by researchers at Western State Colorado University found regular pickleball participation offers substantive cardiovascular benefits, too. Picklers who committed to playing for one hour three times a week showed marked improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness and cholesterol levels. Their blood pressure dropped significantly as well .
If you’re sour on the notion of picking up pickleball, any sport with a racket, net or ball (such as racquetball, badminton, ping-pong or tennis) is a great option to try, according to Dr. Tavel.
For millions around the world, golf is much more than a game. It’s a refuge, a passion and an indispensable mental health outlet. It’s also conduit for meaningful social connectivity.
As a study in the Golf Science Journal found, playing golf is associated with improved physical health and mental well-being, which can potentially contribute to increased life expectancy .
Another nice aspect of golf is that you can choose to walk or ride in a cart, depending on how much exercise or exertion you’re after.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a duffer, terrible putter or serial slicer. The beauty of golf is in spending time outdoors, hitting a few nice shots and getting a bit of exercise, all while enjoying the pleasure of good (and hopefully patient) company.
Swimming is great for cardiovascular health and can be easier on the joints than high-impact sports, as it provides a sense of buoyancy, says Dr. Tavel. However, there is a possible downside.
“This buoyancy can also work against some people by reducing the stress needed to load the musculoskeletal system enough to maintain and increase bone strength,” explains Dr. Tavel.
With that said, swimming is generally a terrific sport for older adults. It can provide a broad array of physical and mental health benefits, from protecting mental health to lowering your risk of early death.
Don’t underestimate the power of group aerobic activity. A study conducted by the University of Washington’s Health Promotion Research Center state found older adults who participated in a program called EnhanceFitness at least once a week experienced significantly fewer hospitalizations and lower health care costs than those who didn’t participate .”
Researchers from the same institution compared an exercise class group with a cohort of non-attendees and found the exercise classes led to significantly better health statuses for the exercise group by a range of 10% to 30%.
Whether you prefer yoga, pilates, Jazzercise, tai chi or something else entirely, you can find a class or group that sparks your interest and benefits your health.
Those with limited mobility may have to modify their sport participation or perhaps seek training prior to getting involved. Another option may be to try different variations of more common sports. For example, sports like walking soccer and walking basketball (which are played the same as soccer and basketball, respectively, just with no running allowed) are gaining momentum.
Even if you don’t feel up to joining an official club or team, you can still work with a physical therapist or personal trainer to address your limitations and options that may best suit you, says Dr. Tavel. She notes stationary cycling, seated resistance exercises and even simple movements like getting up and down from a chair or going for long walks as valuable forms of exercise that can help people stay active and socially independent. Shuffleboard, darts, billiards, bocce ball and fishing are lots of fun, too.
“You might experience some crying, but it is mild and will start to go away around the two-week mark, if not sooner,” says Dr. Kaeni.
But if your symptoms are more severe, such as lack of interest in your baby, having feelings of hopelessness or shame, and having thoughts of harming your baby or yourself, those are red flags of a more serious postpartum mood disorder (PPMD), like postpartum depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
With postpartum depression, your symptoms are more intense and last longer. For example, you may feel hopeless, have low energy, and cry a lot, Dr. Kaeni says. And if you have postpartum anxiety, you might have generalized worry or have specific worries that are hard to manage. You may also have intrusive thoughts that come out of nowhere.
“For example, some people may have a worry that they’re going to drop the baby. And if you continue to think about it, it can take on an obsessive compulsive quality,” Dr. Kaeni explains. “They might stop carrying the baby because they’re so worried that they’re going to do something that harms the child, and it’s not because they actually want to harm the child. It’s the fear that’s debilitating.”
Postpartum depression can also crop up later in the postpartum year when people go back to work or wean from breastfeeding, Dr. Vernon says.
If you need mental health support, whether you think you have a perinatal mood disorder or not, check out Postpartum Support International, which offers help for mothers, fathers, partners and families, queer and trans parents, and military families. There’s also a 24/7 national maternal mental health hotline: 1-833-9-HELP4MOMS; and a 24/7 national mental health and substance abuse hotline: 1-800-662-HELP. It’s worth adding these numbers to your phone now before you need them, so they’re already there if and when you need to reach out.
It’s common to feel the pressures of being the “perfect parent” because we are constantly surrounded by heartwarming images of parents and newborns on social media. But in reality, it is one of the most mentally challenging periods, and many parents—if not all—struggle at some point. You can help ease some of this pressure by filtering your social media feed to only include accounts that resonate with your experience, Dr. Kaeni says.
You can also seek out local mom or parent support groups, where you can meet other parents who are dealing with the same issues. Sometimes all it takes is someone else saying that they can relate.
For instance, Dr. Vernon, who is an advisor for Hey Jane, a digital community for postpartum families, runs a support group for pregnant and postpartum parents. She also recommends Peanut, an app that helps connect people who are navigating fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause. Love also hosts the support groups, Mother Connection and Toddler Time, at Indiana University Health, which are done via Zoom and are open to anyone, regardless of where they live. Dear Sunday Motherhood is another organization that offers virtual mom groups, where people all over the country can connect and gain advice from perinatal experts.
Queer and LGBTQIA+ parents and families can also find resources and support through Gay Parents to Be, Men Having Babies, and Rainbow Families.
Finally, Dr. Vernon reminds parents to be their own best advocate. “No matter what your birth experience is or how your recovery is postpartum, you’re still a great parent,” Dr. Vernon says. “You’re never alone.”
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County voted today to provide $4.4 million to keep the St. Vincent Charity Medical Center psychiatric emergency department open in 2023.
Without the funding, St. Vincent’s psychiatric emergency department-- the only emergency department specifically for patients having mental health crises in Cuyahoga County — would have closed in November, when the hospital ends inpatient, surgical and emergency room care.
MetroHealth System also announced plans to add a psychiatric emergency department to its recently opened $42 million, 112-bed MetroHealth Cleveland Heights Behavioral Health Hospital.
MetroHealth has asked the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services of Cuyahoga County board for $3.6 million to create a psychiatric emergency department as part of the new Cleveland Heights hospital that would open in January, said Dr. Julia Bruner, MetroHealth senior vice president for behavioral health and correctional medicine.
Since the announcement of St. Vincent’s closure, MetroHealth System — which is a safety net hospital like St. Vincent — has seen an increase in psychiatric patients, Bruner said.
“MetroHealth has been most responsible for caring for those (former St. Vincent) patients,” Bruner said. If the ADAMHS board turns down MetroHealth’s request for funds, “we will make it happen,” she said.
The ADAMHS board’s unanimous vote approving money for St. Vincent is an attempt to meet the critical need for psychiatric hospital beds in the region, mental health experts said.
Cuyahoga County is on track to have a record number of fatal overdoses this year, and the COVID-19 pandemic increased demand for mental health counseling. Nearly 5 million people visited emergency departments with mental, behavioral and neurodevelopmental disorders in 2018, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Cuyahoga County has 220 fewer beds than needed to fully meet residents’ need, according to national guidelines cited by MetroHealth. Economic pressures and a lack of staff contribute to the undersupply, health experts say.
St. Vincent’s psychiatric emergency department is one of two dedicated psychiatric emergency departments in the state, ADAMHS said.
The hospital has the funds to keep its psychiatric emergency department open through the end of the year, with its current $3.7 million ADAMHS grant, the board said.
The ADAMHS board will work on ways to secure funding beyond 2023, said ADAMHS board CEO Scott Osiecki. “Give us time to figure out what to do the following year,” he said.
Among the approximately 50 people who attended the emergency meeting, the mood was cautiously upbeat after the vote. Some people questioned what will happen when patients who come to St. Vincent’s psychiatric emergency department need to be hospitalized, since St. Vincent will have no inpatient beds after Nov. 15.
“On the one hand, I’m relieved. On the other hand, so many questions remain,” said Rosie Palfy, a member of the city of Cleveland mental health response advisory committee, which works to build relationships between the city and the behavioral health community.
Cleveland city councilman Charles Slife, vice-chair of the Health, Human Services and the Arts Committee, called the St. Vincent closure “a shock to the neighborhood.”
The Cleveland Heights behavioral health hospital “might as well be in Siberia for people on the West Side,” Slife said. “Many lives are going to be affected by this.”
Last month, St. Vincent announced that it would close its psychiatric and medical emergency rooms, inpatient care and surgical care on Nov. 15. This included the loss of inpatient beds in the psychiatric unit, as well residential treatment and inpatient detox beds in Rosary Hall.
St. Vincent currently has 20 inpatient psychiatric beds and 15 detox beds, and served nearly 1,000 psychiatric inpatients in 2021, the hospital said.
St. Vincent’s psychiatric emergency department offers crisis stabilization, 23-hour observation, assessment, and discharge planning. Patients have access to a psychiatrist or licensed practitioner around the clock.
The facility has safety features such as non-movable furniture and metal detectors, and offers 24/7 access, “which is critical for the patient population being served,” according to the ADAMHS board.
In 2021, there were more than 3,000 visits to the St. Vincent psychiatric emergency department, Osiecki said. About 25% of those patients required hospitalization.
