Although many postgraduate psychology programs address students’ mental health, there are compelling indications that earlier, undergraduate, interventions may be optimal. We investigated specific attitudes that predict students’ intentions to seek treatment for psychological distress to inform targeted interventions.Psychology students (N = 289; mean age = 19.75 years) were surveyed about attitudes and intentions to seek treatment for stress, anxiety, or depression.Less than one quarter of students reported that they would be likely to seek treatment should they develop psychological distress. Attitudes that predicted help-seeking intentions related to recognition of symptoms and the benefits of professional help, and openness to treatment for emotional problems.The current study identified specific attitudes which predict help-seeking intentions in psychology students. These attitudes could be strengthened in undergraduate educational interventions promoting well-being and appropriate treatment uptake among psychology students. HubMed – depression

Although various guidelines regarding neuroendocrine tumors were released, treatment for rectal neuroendocrine tumors with size between 1 and 2 cm has not been explicitly elucidated. The determinant factor of the choice between endoscopic resection and radical surgery is whether lymph node involvement exists.This study aims to explore factors associated with lymph node involvement in rectal neuroendocrine tumors by conducting a meta-analysis.A broad literature research of Pubmed, Embase&Medline, and The Cochrane Library was performed, and systematic review and meta-analysis about factors associated with lymph node involvement were conducted.Seven studies were included in this meta-analysis. Tumor size?>?1 cm (odds ratio (OR) 6.72, 95 % confidence interval (CI) [3.23, 14.02]), depth of invasion (OR 5.06, 95 % CI [2.30, 11.10]), venous invasion (OR 5.92, 95 % CI [2.21, 15.87]), and central depression (OR 3.00, 95 % CI [1.07, 8.43]) were significantly associated with lymph node involvement.The available clinical evidence suggests that tumor size?>?1 cm, invasion of muscularis properia, venous invasion, and central depression could be risk factors of lymph node involvement, while other factors reported by few studies need further research.
