ARTICLE TO READ ON WORLD YOUTH DAY 2018

Using Digital and Social Media Metrics to Develop Mental Health Approaches for Youth

Author(s): Christina Carew, Stan Kutcher, Yifeng Wei, Alan McLuckie.

 

 

 

Abstract:

Objective: The objective of this project was to investigate the online behaviors of adolescent and adult populations with respect to mental health information seeking, and identify differences in approaches within age groups and geographical location.

Method: This content analysis approach identified and mapped patterns in online conversations. The search data was able to quantify who was looking for teen mental health information, where they were looking, and what they were looking for. Additional analysis included the preferred format of information presentation and how mental health searches varied over time.

Results: The results of the analysis revealed that between 2006 (baseline) to 2010, a 200% increase in online activity regarding mental health was identified. Adults were most likely to ignite (initiate) conversations online about depression, followed by: anxiety, doctors, suicide, treatments, and OCD. For teens, depression was also the most ignited topic area, followed by: anxiety, alcohol, suicide, sexting and marijuana. While adults were often seeking information about the disorders and treatment options, teens tended to discuss concerns through the use of personal stories.

Conclusion: This research provides insight into how digital and social media can be used to engage both youth and adult discussions about mental health. We report substantive audience driven differences that can inform the development of targeted mental health knowledge translation methods and activities. A broader understanding of the key mental health topics of interest was garnered, in addition to how online use varied between audiences. These results have several implications for mental health knowledge translation including tactics to connect with various stakeholders.

Maternal Vitamin D Status and Development of Asthma and Allergy in Early Childhood

Author(s): Anna Papadopoulou, Evangelia Bountouvi, Vasiliki Papaevaggelou, Kostas N. Priftis.

Abstract:

Vitamin D has an indisputable immunodulatory role in both lung and immune system development, which is initiated during fetal life and is mainly accomplished in the first years of extrauterine life. Several published studies have shown that low levels of vitamin D may increase the risk of developing asthma and allergic diseases. Moreover, vitamin D deficiency epidemic reported over the last decades coincides with an increase in the prevalence of asthma and allergies in westernized societies. Since placental transfer of 25(OH)D is the major source of vitamin D in the developing fetus, important questions concerning the impact of maternal vitamin D status on the outcome of pregnancy have arisen. The aim of this review is to present the current evidence regarding the determinants of vitamin D status in pregnancy as well as its role in the development of asthma and allergies in early childhood.

Malaria in Children – Prevention and Management

Author(s): Angela Dramowski, Lisa Frigati, Helena Rabie, Mark Cotton

Abstract:

Malaria causes a quarter of all childhood deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa. Considerable gains in global malaria control have been achieved in the last decade but coverage of effective interventions remains low in areas of greatest malaria burden. Some countries have achieved reduced malaria related mortality through application of recent advances in malaria prevention and treatment of children. Artemisinin combination therapies (particularly artesunate) are highly efficacious and well-tolerated in children, although several alternative treatments are available. However, the evolution of drug resistance (including emerging resistance to artemisinin derivatives) threatens the success of malaria treatment programmes. This special issue review is aimed at paediatric clinicians in resource-poor settings and provides a summary of recent data from paediatric trials of malaria treatment and prevention interventions.
