Both research evidence and the changing demographics of illness suggest an increasing need to integrate health and mental health services. Health psychology is an example of such a movement. Traditional mental health services contain vehicles for achieving this integration including preventive psychiatry, individual psychotherapy, family therapy, and group therapy, including support groups. Importing these models to health care will require some modifications and cautions, however, and attention to cost-effectiveness will be critical in achieving any integration of services. Examples of cost-effective mental health services in health care delivery are described and offered as potential models for integration.
The current study focused on exploring the psychological impact of the COVID -19 outbreak on university students and participants' expectations of mental health professionals. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 80 university students aged 18 to 33 years from 19 cities in Turkey. Qualitative content analysis was used to identify important aspects of the students' experiences. According to the results, the main effects of the epidemic COVID -19 on the participants were depression and anxiety.
