NCT ID: NCT06453109 Recruiting - Anxiety Clinical Trials

Focused Ultrasound for the Complex Patient

Start date: January 25, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this clinical trial is to to inhibit the anterior insula (AI) with low intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU) to determine the causal role for the AI in pain processing, anxiety, and opiate cue-induced craving. The main question[s] it aims to answer are: - the safety and tolerability of LIFU delivered bilaterally to AI compared to sham stimulation in individuals with opiate use disorder (OUD), anxiety, and chronic back pain - the effects of LIFU vs sham on measures of pain processing, anxiety symptoms, and opiate cue-induced craving Participants will undergo anatomical MRI, neurological assessment, clinical assessment and patient query to assess the safety and tolerability of LIFU vs sham.

Clinical Investigation of Syndi

Start date: August 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Mental health concerns are a growing global concern, but support can still be difficult to access. Digital health technologies can help people access support, but with over 10,000 mental health apps available, it can be difficult to choose one that is safe, effective, and personalised. Syndi is a digital health platform that uses a machine learning system to provide personalised recommendations of mental health apps. This study aims to examine the impact of Syndi and its recommendations on the mental health and well-being of people with mental health concerns. The investigators will use the standard IAPT measures of anxiety and depression, as well as additional measures of wellbeing and functional impairment to look at the impact of Syndi on patients' mental well-being. The investigators will also look at user experience with Syndi using a survey. Users' engagement with Syndi and its recommended apps will be assessed using a short survey and some participants will be randomly selected for an interview so the investigators can get a better understanding of what people liked and disliked about using the platform and why. The investigators expect that the project will show that using Syndi helps improve mental well-being in people with mental health concerns. If the study shows this positive impact, this will provide evidence to support the use of Syndi to improve the accessibility of mental health support in clinical pathways. The investigators will publish the results of our study in academic journals as well as in more accessible platforms.

NCT ID: NCT06447909 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Randomized Controlled Trial of a Behavioral Training App

Start date: March 27, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The investigators propose addressing and evaluating the efficacy of a behavioral, contingency management app by conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) that will evaluate the app compared to a placebo app control group. Participants will be randomly assigned to immediate intervention using the treatment condition or to a placebo app condition. Participants will not know which condition they are assigned to until after the study completion; they will also not know that they are using the treatment app until after the study completion. The sample will consist of 100 families of school-age children (ages 6-12) who display significant behavioral problems. The treatment app is a task management platform containing a self-directed rewards system through which caregivers can assign token rewards to their children for completing routine tasks (e.g., cleaning their room, completing homework). Participants in the placebo app condition will have a similar user experience, however, tokens are assigned non-contingently (dispensed daily, rather than based on task completion). While participants will not be required to complete any tasks or behaviors in the app as part of their participation in the study, they will be asked to use the app at least once per day for 8 weeks. Given the self-directed nature of the treatment app (parents decide how frequently they access the app-based rewards system and how many tasks they assign to their child), parent involvement in the intervention will vary slightly in duration. However, based on the literature and routine practice, we anticipate parents will log in at least once a day to assign tasks to their child and follow up on completed rewards. Assessments (see details below) will occur at baseline, weekly during the intervention, and at the end of the study. The study will take about 8 weeks in total to complete once participants have been enrolled in the app.

The Effect of Virtual Reality and Buzzy Application on Pain, Fear and Anxiety During Prick Test in Children

Start date: June 15, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction to a triggering agent. Tests used in allergy are divided into two: in vivo and in vitro. Among the in vivo tests routinely used, epidermal, intradermal and patch tests are used, and the most commonly used is the skin prick test. In order to prevent the negative effects of pain, it is important to be informed about the appropriate approach to children, newborns and babies, and effective pain management, according to their cognitive development levels. Pain management in children should be done appropriately with accurate assessment tools. This will increase the quality of life, reduce hospitalizations, shorten the length of hospital stay and reduce costs. Pain experiences experienced during childhood will cause later pain experiences to be perceived as more severe and cause anxiety and fear. Anxiety is a psychological, physiological and behavioral state that develops in response to a perceived or existing threat. Anxiety, which can also be expressed as worry or anxiety, is a emotional state that can occur in various ways, such as restlessness, tension, easy fatigue, lack of concentration, muscle tension, and sleep disturbance, in which autonomic and somatic symptoms occur in the body, without any reason. Virtual reality provides multi-sensory information as children focus on the simulated world. Virtual reality, one of the cognitive methods; It can create an environment where three-dimensional pictures or animations created on the computer can interact in people's minds. It is also defined as a distraction method created by software, which creates the feeling that users are in the environment even though they are not in the real environment, and can interact with people in the environment. When all these studies were examined, no three-group study was found comparing a distracting method with a physical method for the 7-10 age group. Additionally, there is a study that used virtual reality in the prick test, but there is no method that has been proven to be superior to virtual reality. In this study, it will be investigated whether virtual reality and buzzy applications have a reducing effect on pain, fear and anxiety compared to the control group. Virtual reality and buzzy techniques will also be compared with each other. Since no such study has been found in the literature, it is thought to contribute to the field.

Non-invasive Auricular Simulation for Exam Anxiety and Depression in University Students

Start date: May 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In Spain, depression, anxiety, and stress are highly prevalent in the general population as well as in college students. In college students, Ramón Arbués et al. found a moderate prevalence of depression (18.4%), anxiety (23.6%) and stress (34.5%). It is essential to take responsibility for promoting health education, disease prevention, protection and care for our young people. Academic performance can be altered due to the stressful nature of exam situations, which can lead to increased anxiety and decrease expected performance, mainly due to effects such as decreased attention span, concentration and retention of information. Modulation of vagal tone is a therapeutical strategy to heightened parasympathetic activity and withdrawal sympathetic activity. Auricular transcutaneous VNS (ATVNS) by which parasympathetic nerve system is modulated by means of the stimulation of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve that provides somatosensory innervation to the external ear. It has been shown that there are different effective interventions to reduce the symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety and insomnia in university students, but they are based on psychological interventions or face-to-face and cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approach, so this study proposal incorporates noninvasive atrial stimulation as an alternative to traditional treatments, which apart from being cost-effective, is easy to apply, well tolerated and presumably can have beneficial effects in the short term. In the present pilot study, we propose to investigate the degree of depression, anxiety and stress on crucial dates of final exams of 1st year students of the Double Degree Physiotherapy - Physical Activity and Sport Sciences of the Health Department of the TecnoCampus. We will also evaluate the feasibility of a study to assess the efficacy of a non-pharmacological intervention, through a neuroreflex stimulation of vagal tone, with a non-invasive atrial stimulation protocol.

Global Controlled Trial on Effects of an Online Self-Help Program for of Ambitious Altruists on Their Mental Health, Wellbeing, and Productivity: Comparing Versions With IFS vs. CBT, Buddy- vs. Group-, Standard- vs. Minimum-Guidance Intensity.

Start date: June 10, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study aims to compare different versions of a 16-week online self-help program in terms of their effect on self-assessed mental health, well-being, and productivity. The versions differ in their intensity (standard, low) and type (buddy, group) of guidance, the applied psychotherapeutic approaches taught (IFS, CBT). We expect to recruit a sample of ~150 ambitious altruists and have them self-select into the four program versions. Participants take part in surveys before, at weeks 8, 12, and 16 to self-assess their productivity, mental health burden, quality of life, and other risk and protection factors. Weekly screenings will provide data on objective and subjective success components such as participant engagement, working alliance, and treatment adherence, which will be correlated with primary and secondary outcomes.

NCT ID: NCT06440798 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Mental Health Content and Mental Health Outcomes

Start date: January 1, 2024
Study type: Observational

The study will aim to explore the relationship between mental health content on social media and health behavior, addressing a gap in empirical research. Using the Theory of Planned Behavior, a survey with over 600 participants will examine associations between exposure to mental health content and behaviors like help-seeking and self-diagnosis.

NCT ID: NCT06438276 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Psychiatric Outreach Nurses Supporting Adolescent Mental Health

Start date: May 6, 2024
Study type: Observational

The study evaluates the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the outreach work of psychiatric registered nurses (RN) and the experiences of professionals in the field. The service is provided in school environment. First, the study will assess the effectiveness of brief interventions provided by psychiatric outreach nurses on the perceived mental health and quality of life of adolescents (12-16 year old pupils) and their use of social and health services, compared to the support/treatment provided by conventional student welfare services at 6 and 12 months follow-up. The intervention is an outreach service provided by psychiatric nurses. In the intervention, the psychiatric registered nurse will implement interventions such as usual care, discussion, psychoeducation, substance abuse skills and various methods (such as interpersonal psychotherapy = IPT-N and Cool Kids) and motivational interviewing. Secondly, an economic evaluation of the service will be carried out at 6 and 12 months follow-up. The economic evaluation will be carried out from the perspective of the Wellbeing Services County, including the costs of implementing the intervention model and its effects on adolescents' use of student welfare services as well as other social and health services. Primarily, the economic evaluation will use quality-weighted life years as a measure of effectiveness. Also analysis using depression, anxiety and substance use measures will be conducted. Thirdly, the study will explore the experiences of psychiatric nurses implementing the service as well as the experiences of their collaborators in schools (public health nurses, school social workers, psychologists, doctors and teachers) about the service and its implementation.
