It is in the nursing homes job description, that the nursing staff employed should be certified, and be able to perform a number of tasks in order to better understand the patient. This includes an assessment of the patient's mental status and thought process, an understanding of the patient's health concerns, ailments and other physical issues, with an open discussion between the nurse and the patient of anything troubling the patient with regard to their health or treatment plans and/or other mental worries that the patient faces.
If the patient insists on declining medicine, they need to be explained their necessity and adjusted, if the medication is causing some sort discomfort to the patient. The nursing staff should not only himself/herself care for the patient when it comes to their medication and rehabilitation, but also educate the patient themselves. The nursing staff constantly should supervise the elderly, however, if there…

Mental Health Service Reimbursement
How have changes in reimbursement and medications been a major driver in these policy and treatment changes?
As a Chief Nursing Officer, one must be at once informed of the practical, day-to-day challenges of nursing in the field and of the administrative realities shaping the occupation. ith respect to the latter, it is important to understand the implications of insurance, Medicare and coverage terms and conditions. These frequently complex terms will have a direct impact on the experience of providing treatment. This is well demonstrated in a discussion on coverage vagaries relating to mental health treatment reimbursement. Especially with so many changes now taking place in the healthcare field, there is practical value in understanding the emergent conditions of mental health coverage.
The most immediate and impactful change in mental health coverage relates to the historical limitations placed on the scope of treatment reimbursement. Insurance companies…

Mental Health Policies and Legislation
It is not humane nor is it dignified to allow any living person to live in a florid psychosis; this would be a cruel and odd punishment. In the Australian medical practice, the health laws and regulations dictate that, doing the legal thing in the course of duty is not sufficient, but rather the professional must do what is morally right. In definition, recovery is the process of changing through which an individual improves in their health status and wellness, to live a self-directed life, striving to reach their maximum potential (Turton, Wright & Killaspy, 2010). The essay covers the introduction of the recovery model of care in Australia and the successive impacts it has on the treatment process of the patients: in addition to the impact on the nursing practice. The evolution of the recovery model, however, now presents a chance for the challenged…

Enacting provisions that apply to immigrants: The figures that were examined earlier in the table titled Immigration Status and the Percentage without any Health Insurance Coverage.

Mental Health Policy
A healthy body keeps a healthy mind is a universal proverb applicable to people of all times. Mental illness not only harms the person himself but also the ones who are closely associated with him. The number of mentally ill people is increasing across the globe and there is serious need to devise an effective policy to control this situation.
An abusive, compelling and dominating behavior in a dating relationship among the teenage youngsters is termed as dating violence. Students susceptible to dating violence suffer greatly in terms of their academic performance, social and extra-curricular activities. They may show poor results and isolate themselves from colleagues and friends. They may show lack of interest in extra-curricular activities. All these activities are results of poor mental health. Such students have a profound effect on their psyche due to being exposed to some kind of in-home violence in their…

Policy Issues in Mental Health and Impact
Mental healthcare is an area of care that has been neglected by policy makers and by the medical community at some point in its history. Examining how the mentally ill have been treated throughout history demonstrates that opinions have changed and people treatment has followed how the general public viewed mental health. At times reformers would make conditions better, but these always seemed to be followed by periods when the mentally ill were treated like criminals. This roller coaster ride of options and opinions seems to be changing currently, and the idea that mental health is as much of a disease as other forms of chronic illness is beginning to take hold with the general public.
Some of the credit for this can be laid at the feet of a greater awareness of how PTSD affects soldiers and other victims of…

Mental health disorder is a continuum ranging from a severe disorder to minor distress of behavior or mind. The prime target of the health initiative is to enhance the social functioning and health of mentally ill persons (Halpern & Kaste, 2013). Oral health problem contributes to quality of life, general health, and self-esteem. Although it might have a minimal priority in the context of depression, the impact of mental health and treatment of oral health need to be addressed.
Dental Consequences of Depression
Studies indicate that high comorbidity and chronic dental pain are the most commonly recognized dental implications. Literature on chronic pain and depression extends to describe the reciprocal relation between depression and dental pain. Decreased motivation and energy, coupled with negative self-opinions associated with depression might cause a detrimental effect on oral hygiene habits and adherence to treatment interventions (Kandel, 2012).

The ultimate solution is comprehensive mental health coverage, a solution which must be achieved on a political level. Full Circle Health is already striving to do so, as part of its political advocacy work. However, until then, one possible solution would be to employ individuals specifically to work helping patients negotiate the complex health care bureaucracy and to work with insurance agencies, government organizations, and private charities to ensure funding. Ideally, these individuals would be paid staff members, employed to work as advocates for funding and to work with insurance companies, to help with paperwork and to submit appeals, when necessary, if funding was threatened. If there is no budget for additional paid staff, volunteers could be employed, however the issue of confidentiality regarding mental health care records must be strictly observed. Paid and volunteer positions would be trained in the health care insurance industry's language, and provide needed and…

Mental Health Care System
The mental healthcare system in the United States is historically fractured. A "silo"-based foundation precludes correlation between varied and integral systems that, collectively, offer a range of services to treat the whole patient. The President's ew Freedom Commission on Mental Health roused the debate of the mental health community and rallied them around one goal: providing thorough, coherent, and appropriate treatment to Americans with mental health and substance abuse problems. Particularly needy for this form of collected care is one demographic in particular: teens dealing with drug abuse and alcohol problems. The substance-abusing teen is caught between many cracks: between child and adult, the mental health system and juvenile justice. The ever-developing mental healthcare system in the United States is restructuring to address this failure, approaching the teen from both SAMHSA and affiliated programs as well as through the Justice Department, using individual, family, and developmentally-appropriate…

This initiative aimed at developing cooperative partnership between these teams as well as establishing systems for proactive, structured care at the practice level (Pidd 2004). Implementation has similarly been problematic. When effected, it would insure the engagement and involvement of the key staff in GP practice and local community mental health teams; a participative, facilitated process for the shared care conceptual framework; joint working groups to develop shared care agreements; and a shared understanding of priorities for improvement. Meanwhile, pilot studies conducted on personal medical services identified five factors, which could enhance successful quality improvement. These were effective collaboration with community and secondary care,…

Parents of children with psychological problems are often highly stressed, emotionally and economically, and many have observed that dealing with state bureaucracy can feel like a 'full job' in and of itself. The Case Management Service addresses this problem.
Of course, getting appropriate screening in the first place is essential: children with mental difficulties or learning disabilities, if not properly assessed by a professional, may simply be labeled 'bad' children. This is why all Californian children can be screened at relatively young ages for mental health complaints through the Preschool 0-5 Program. This program facilitates mental health screening, evaluations, treatment and consultation in childcare facilities, pediatrician's offices, and in other environments where children are likely to receive care or treatment (Children's Services, 2010, iverdale).

Mental Health Legislation
Critical Appraisal of ecent Mental Health Legislation and its Effect Upon Service Users and Carers
In recent years, we have seen a renewed government interest in public health. The everyday coming amendments and suggestions show that achievement of a healthy individual in society is not just related to medical treatment. It also shows that social, environmental and economic surroundings play an important part to determine levels of illness and disease (DoH, 1999). Before mid-twentieth century, majority of the moderate mental disorders were not taken seriously to treat and only people get assistance from their general physician and from family, friends, and clergy

Providing patients with mental health problems with the proper care can be a difficult task. There are also many ethical issues that often arise in caring for patients who are mentally ill. The case of Rocky Bennett is a prime example of the ethical dilemmas that can arise when arriving for this particular population. These dilemmas can also be compounded when racial discrimination is involved. The purpose of this discussion is to examine issues related to the delivery of mental healthcare using the Rocky Bennett case as an example.
Delivery of community and health services
Mental illness is still a taboo subject in many communities throughout the world. As such the delivery of delivering community and mental health services can be difficult. Ethical issues abound in the field of mental health because of the sensitivities involved when treating patients who are mentally ill. The major issues are often…

By not complying with the medical treatment, they are making a statement about their own identity and how it is in their hands, not in their parents or the doctors'. Thus, compliance becomes associated with giving in. Moreover, many teens are worried about the medication itself. For example, "A teen may be wary of the side effects from the prescribed medication, and taking the prescribed medication may validate the teen's condition," (MassGeneral Hospital for Children 2009). By taking the medication, they are validating their disorder, which they may want to ignore. Thus, noncompliance serves as a method of denial -- denying the existence of the very disorder itself.
There are several ways that compliance can be increased. All parties involved should hold some responsibility for increasing compliance with treatment. Therefore, doctors especially should take time to adjust treatment to the teen's life in order to provide the greatest level of…

The attitude of parents which came across as more authoritative, uncompromising, uncooperative and unaffectionate does result in higher levels of depression in the subject. Even though parental authority was required for disciplining the adolescents, it was the accentuated sort of antagonistic authority that resulted in higher levels of depression as well as increased the possibility of clashes and irritation. The fact of the matter is that in most occasions when the adolescent did not respond simultaneously to the overt and hesitant disapprovals and authority of the parents, it decreased with the passage of time.
Apart from these confined parenting approaches there were some peripheral, indirect and distant parenting approaches that brought about depressive inclinations in the adolescent as well. One of these indirect factors was the personal happiness and contentment of the parents within their own relationship or familial or financial situation. While positive growth of this child was also…

Mental Health Memo
Process evaluation can be conducted in a manner highly similar to program evaluation, with an identification of specific levels of efficiency and consistency desired and empirical observation to determine if and to what degree those outcomes are being achieved (Lewis et al., 2012). Outcome measures can be obtained in a similar manner and often in more concrete and simply observed qualitative fashions (Lewis et al., 2012). For the evaluation of the Consultation and Education Department at Greenby Community Mental Health Center, one useful process evaluation measure would be self-reported learner satisfaction. This would demonstrate the degree to which the educational programs being implemented were perceived to be as efficient and effective as desired, and could help identify areas for improvement. Actual learner performance in practical and academic settings, whether through formal or informal quizzes or as measured in follow-up interviews regarding the handling of specific…

Antiquated or outdated conceptual approaches to rehabilitation counseling are less effective than those that correspond more closely to the actual needs of patients. As a professional counselor, it is important to understand the specific needs of patients to best assist them achieve the maximum possible reintegration into a fulfilling and productive life after their return from combat with serious injures or long-term disabilities.

In Mrs. K's case (as in terms of all patients to whom the test is administered) her educational attainment and age need to be considered.
Mrs. K's rating was low - 14 points - and although this does correlate closely with dementia, caution has to be exercised since other mental disorders can also lead to low readings on the MMSE testing. It was also taken into account that physical problems, such as deafness, fatigue, concern, inability to concentrate, inability to hear or read the instructions properly or to understand them, or perhaps a motor or visual deficit that affected writing and drawing skills may interfere with test results. As far as possible, we tried to correct for these occurrences.

Describe the differences and similarities you assess/observe in the unit milieu, staff behaviors and attitudes, interactions among clients and factors that impacted positively and negatively on your clinical experience each week compared to the previous week.
The similarities that were observed are that the staff took a consistent approach when dealing with a wide variety of patients. As they would ask a series of questions and then listen to the responses of patients to determine the most effective treatment options. This helped the unit / staff to be able to quickly diagnose and treat everyone. Over the course of time, this lead to behaviors / attitudes that were focused on: objectively understanding the scope of the problem and possible solutions for dealing with them. (Lynch, 2011)
The biggest differences were the overall scope of the treatment options that were recommended. Evidence of this can be seen by comparing
Carl Gustav Jung's stretched out Freud's unconscious concept by describing the collective unconscious which formed his theory of analytic psychology. He described the total personality as the psyche, classifications as follows. First is the ego which is the conscious dimension of personality, then the personal unconscious which includes anything that is not presently conscious. It includes memories that are easily brought to mind and those that have been suppressed for some reason excluding the instincts that Freud includes. And then there is the collective unconscious, a pool of our experiences and a type of familiarity we are all born with and yet we can never be directly mindful of it.
It persuades all of our experiences and behaviors, the majority in particular the disturbing ones, but we only know about it in some way, by looking at those influences. There are some experiences that give you an idea about the…

Mental Health PolicyOne mental health policy issue that is important in America right now is safeguarding the mental health of children. That is why the Mental Health Services for Students Act of 2020 was written (HR 1109, 2020). This is especially true since the lockdowns of 2020, which have worsened the mental health issues of young people, as can be seen by increased rates of reported depression and suicide; but in fact rates were already rising, as reported by Heid (2020): Between 2009 and 2017, rates of depression among kids ages 14 to 17 increased by more than 60%, the study found. The increases were nearly as steep among those ages 12 to 13 (47%) and 18 to 21 (46%), and rates roughly doubled among those ages 20 to 21.

Today, depression is a common mental health illness with a prevalence of 6.2%. This means in every 15 adult people, one has the disorder. The disease is characterized by loss of interest in routine activities, extensive sadness, and outrageous conduct. For an individual to be diagnosed with the disorder, these symptoms have to persist for more than 2 weeks. The high prevalence of the disorder has resulted in high rates of patients admission (Parekh, 2017). As a practitioner in the mental health unit, one is tasked with the responsibility to develop a treatment plan for each patient and a group plans for patients with similar challenges towards the realization of health. Group treatment plans establish interpersonal relationships among the patients which are therapeutic, cathartic, and equip the patients with skills to facilitate more effective functioning.
People who are affected by depression suffer humiliation especially due to stereotypes propagated by mainstream…

According to the World Health Organization (2022), childhood and adulthood are important stages in mental health. Adults can be able to assume their adult roles by acquiring social-emotional and cognitive skills that would help shape their future. In this case, Brittanys current life was shaped by the childhood and adulthood objects she highlights. This is more so the case given that her childhood experiences were addressed through shared love. Essentially, showing students love and compassion would ordinarily help decrease…

1. Based on the symptoms described, how concerned should the family be?As a family member, I would be very concerned with Jasons history. For one, he suddenly shifted his behavior from a more subtle and normal mannerisms to one which is more chaotic. He suddenly shifted his behavior to after showing a period of normal behavior. This indicates that a shift has occurred in his mannerisms and thought processes. As a family member, I would be very worried about the symptoms he is showing as it relates to his behavior (Canda, 2013)2. What should be their initial response?There initial response by family members should be to determine the cause pf the unusual behaviors. From the case study, it appears the issues have occurred after college and may have been triggered from an event after graduation. Jason is hearing voices which is concerning considering that he was not hearing these same…

A Gap in Equity Related to Mental Health Access for Veterans
Describe a specific gap in the delivery of healthcare. Include the specific population affected by the gap
A specific gap that is existent in the delivery of healthcare takes into account a shortfall in equity that is associated with mental health accessibility for veterans.
Briefly describe the history of this gap in access to healthcare. Has this been an issue historically, or is it a modern issue?
A gap in accessibility to mental care has been a historical issue that has protracted into the present times. This gap in equity goes back to the mid-20th century during the Vietnam War. Thousands of recruits within the military armies that participated in the war developed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after the culmination of their military duties. In definition, post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental health illness caused by the…
Disparities with Mental Health among African American YouthIntroductionAfrican American youth continue to face various disparities with regard to their mental health challenges. For instance, black American youth are less likely to receive mental health treatment as compared to white adolescents. According to Lindsey et al. (2012), the said unwillingness to offer treatment is usually not due to financial reasons. Rather, is due to the fact that they are black. Essentially, black Americans with mental health challenges often receive negative perceptions from providers. In addition, the mental health problems that they experience makes them stigmatize themselves (Linsey et al., 2012). Wallace (2012) suggests that when African American youth do receive treatment, their mental health disorders are often diagnosed incorrectly or misdiagnosed, undertreated, or mistreated. In addition, research on mental health research has also been carried out on this front. Apart from receiving minimal attention in as far as their mental health…

Selamu et al. (2015) establish that drug abuse and mental illness are greatly interlinked. The prevalence of stigma about mental health and substance abuse disorders often hinders the affected people from seeking mental health care. Rural areas and areas where there is a low resource allocation have limited mental healthcare services. This results in a larger financial burden in the management of the subsequent disabilities due to the lack of medical care in the early stages of the mental illness. Further, the lack of community-based rehabilitation centers leads to a higher prevalence of mental health disorders in marginalized communities. Acharya et al. (2017), report that there is limited access to culturally sensitive mental care. The provision of contextual care is limited despite great efficacy associated with this kind of care. As exhibited, there is a disconnect in the services provided by the government and non-governmental health care providers…

PHILANTHROPY Philanthropy: History of Mental Health TreatmentThe Antebellum Era was one of the most significant periods when humanitarian practices were highly exercised to reform American society. To eliminate the sins of criminals from the society, the humanitarians thought of playing their part in creating asylums where the offenders and mentally ill who thought committing a crime is their right was put into (Avina, 2016). The state was filled with criminals that were considered inhumane.One of the most famous humanitarians is Dorothea Dix, who believed there were no measures to differentiate between criminals and the mentally ill (Avina, 2016). She began her journey for this reform with the help of Samuel Gridley and Charles Sumner for scrutinizing hospitals in Massachusetts. She observed that the mentally ill were poorly kept in chained prisons and suffered brutalities (History, 2018). She thought they should be treated in suitable psychiatric hospitals with compassion, attention, and…

Drug abuse among patients with mental problems is a serious issue that has gained some popularity in America today because it affects people from all lifestyles and age groups. The associated health problems are common, serious, and recurrent although the prospects of recovery on both issues cannot be ruled out. Therefore, knowledge on common drug abuse and mental health problems is important. It helps the society and other stakeholders in recognizing their signs and guiding victims to seek medical help. Studies of drug abuse in mental health patients confirm their high comorbidity hence the classification as ‘co-occurring’ or ‘dual’ disorders.
Mental disorders normally involve the change in and people’s thinking, behavior, and mood that later affects how they make certain choices and their relationship to other people in society. They occur in different forms such as schizophrenia, which makes an individual have extremely bad temperament (Newman, 2016). Moreover, some people…
African Americans Attitude and Access to Mental Health UtilizationContext of the problem.African Americans, also known as Afro-Americans, are the American ethnic group with partial or total ancestry from any black ancestry in Africa. The term African American signifies the descendants of enslaved Africans in the United States, while some are also immigrants from Africa. African Americans compose the second-largest racial group and a third of the largest ethnic group in the United States. On the other hand, mental health is defined as behavioral, emotional, and cognitive well-being. It is generally about how people feel, behave, and thinklooking after mental health enables one to enjoy life. This can be achieved through balancing between life responsibilities, activities, and efforts to attain psychological resilience. Situations like anxiety, stress, and depression can affect an individuals mental health (Conner et al., 2010).In general, mental health conditions occur in African Americans at less frequency than white…

NURSING AbstractThe growing needs of behavioral and mental healthcare have enforced the state regulation to rethink psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners across the country. The advanced practicing specialties need to be greatly emphasized in this field since its cost0-effective option grants a new role to these nurse practitioners for assessing, evaluating, diagnosing, and suggesting therapeutic interventions for the individuals who need prompt mental healthcare. The following paper aims to explore the role of psychiatric nurse practitioners and their function in the medical field. The comparison and contrast would be made for observing the ideal role in research and theory with relevance to its actual application in practice. The evidence-based practice guidelines would signify the practice domains of this role matching the job description of the nurse practitioner. Besides, the leadership functions of the role would be examined for gauging its effective use in behavioral healthcare provision. The last section would…

Social work and the implications of a mental health policy for African Americans Social work and the implications of a mental health policy for African Americans 9Social work and the implications of a mental health policy for African AmericansIn the context of mental health, unlike overall health, differences in health care take precedence over inequalities in mental wellbeing. In aggregate, ways to enhance healthcare coverage, like increasing availability and improving treatment value, would go a long way toward eradicating inequities in mental health care (McGuire & Miranda, 2008). Nonetheless, reducing mental health inequities requires social workers' differentmental health personnel and delivery and patient awareness. Therefore, inequalities in mental health care areregarded as inequitable discrepancies in accessing or standard of healthcare based on ethnicity andrace, which are fairly widespread. the overwhelming indications point to the presence of substantial and long-standing inequities in mental health care. Black Americans have a prominent place…

Mental Health and Green Space
Measuring Mental Health and Green Space
Grahn and Stigsdotter (2010) sampled 953 randomly selected informants from 9 cities in Sweden to respond to a questionnaire. The responses were assessed using factor analysis and regression analyses to measure the impact of green space on mental health. Their study found that environments rich with nature and abundant wildlife help to minimize stress. Their finding is supported by Wolf (n.d.) who shows that by incorporating green spaces into urban areas, communities can improve the mental health of their population.
The study by Fjeld, Veiersted, Sandvik et al. (1998) focused on measuring the neuropsychological symptoms, mucous membrane symptoms, and skin symptoms of participants in an office building before and after foliage plants were introduced into the office. The study measured all of the symptoms were lessened by 23% in total following the introduction of greenery into the office. Their…
Culture and Health Nursing
Case Study: Jeannette
Treating patients appropriately demands that providers foster an environment in which patients can be candid about their health conditions. It should be viewed as a positive first step that Jeanette and her mother disclosed the fact that they have been using a Haitian voodoo priestess (mambo) coming to the house to treat Jeanette. Unfortunately, many of the herbs used in such traditional practices are not only ineffective, but can be potentially dangerous, particularly if mixed with conventional medical treatments such as antidepressants (Kelak, Cheah, & Safii, 2018). Mental health issues such as posttraumatic stress disorder can be confusing and frightening for a family, and using traditional medicine may be comforting to people like Jeanette’s mother. It may also be less traumatic to think of her daughter as cursed rather than as suffering from a mental illness.
Clinicians must be culturally sensitive. Seeking spiritual…
Article Critique Article Critique on with factors and disorders on type of School-Based Mental Health Services Received by YouthMental health is a significant issue in society because of the increasing cases of depression and suicide. Schools have incorporated mental health services to help underserved youths. However, there are cases that these school-based services are varied. Green and other renowned authors have written an article known as "Association of Sociodemographic Factors and Psychiatric Disorders With Type of School-Based Mental Health Services Received by Youth." Therefore, the core purpose of the essay is to summarize and critique the article.This article discusses racial disparities in accessing mental health services among youths. The authors compare the number of whites receiving mental health services in specialty sectors to minority communities. For instance, Latinos and Blacks are more likely to be assigned to separate classrooms or schools than their white counterparts (Green et al., 2020). Despite…

Case information and intake information
The patient is a Caucasian female that is 29 years old. She presented the symptoms and signs of a mental health condition. Apart from having sleepless nights, she stated that she often felt sad, had crying spells almost daily, and that she was overeating. She stated that her sleeping was not right in the sense that it took her a couple of hours before finally falling a sleep. She also added that during certain nights, falling a sleep was impossible and if it happened, she would only sleep for few hours. She mentioned that she found herself thinking a lot and worrying during the time that she was awake. She said that her worries included the thoughts of her not being a good mother, and she felt as though she was a burden to her husband. She also acknowledged that she often thought…
My view of criminal justice has changed completely. Before this course, I was under the impression that the criminal justice system might be flawed—but what system is perfect? Now I have a much better understanding of the nature of that system and the reasons it is not just imperfect but in major need of reform if not total re-development. The reason I say that is I have come to understood criminological theories that explain why crime happens, and mental health issues are a big part of the problem. It is almost to the point where crime has really become not a criminal justice problem but rather a mental health problem, as nearly half of all crimes are committed by people with a history of mental health issues (Evans Cuellar, McReynolds & Wasserman, 2006). Instead of getting the mental health treatment they need, these people become self-destructive, break laws because they…

Adolescent choices can determine outcomes that emerge later in life. Setting aside congenital conditions that adversely affect adolescent physical or mental health, adolescents and young adults also face risks related to lifestyle choices. Those risk factors increase among some demographic cohorts, especially low- and middle-income groups. Mental health is a major concern among adolescents and young adults, which is why numerous community-level task forces address these concerns. In fact, the American government’s Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP, 2020) lists mental health disorders at the top of the list of concerns for adolescent population health.
In “Peer-facilitated community-based interventions for adolescent health in low-and middle-income countries,” Rose-Clarke, Bentley, Marston, et al. (2019) offer the results of a systematic review of community-level interventions related to adolescent health concerns. Specific programs and services include peer counseling options, which provide meaningful social support systems for at-risk youth. Research in adolescent socialization…
Mental Health Disorders
Throughout the centuries, mental health disorder has been viewed in a number of different ways by different eras and communities around the world. Some approached it from a spiritual dimension, while others approached it from a naturalistic viewpoint (Kyziridis, 2005; Smith, 2007). Food, music, prayer, and time spent in comfortable surroundings were variously viewed as ways to treat mental disturbance in antiquity. Through the Middle Ages, mental disorder became associated with spiritual influence, either from Heaven or from Hell.
Hospitals were places where persons with severe mental disorders were placed, but there was not much good treatment—as the experiences at Bedlam in London have shown. When the Age of Enlightenment and more focus on naturalistic science prevailed in the 18th century onward, more focus on the brain and how to treat disturbances brought new treatments into existence.
Today, many mental health disorders are still not understood very…
Parental Interventions for Oppositional Defiant Disorder Kids
Oppositional Defiant Disorder is characterized by irritability and anger among children. Such children also tend to be argumentative, defiant and vindictive towards anyone with authority over them. Their conduct is an impediment towards the normal daily activities expected of them. There is a lifetime prevalence of ODD that has been measured to stand at about 11% of the population in general. The ODD symptoms are apparent as early as 8 years. It has been established that about 70% of all children suffering from ODD no longer show symptoms of the condition at the age of 18 years. It has also been observed that only a small number of the group proceeds to develop antisocial conduct in adulthood. The disorder elicits a multifactorial basis for its existence. There is proper documentation that points at parenting styles, heredity and other psychosocial factors in the development…
Evidence- Based Patient Safety Initiative
Introduced in the year 2003, Transforming Care at A Bedside (TCAB) represents a national- level initiative originally formulated and headed by the IHI (Institute for Healthcare Improvement) and RWJF (Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). TCAB ensures leadership involvement at every healthcare institutional level and authorizes front- line nursing staff and other healthcare workers to contribute towards improving healthcare safety and quality on surgical- medical units, increasing nursing personnel retention and vitality, improving overall patient care team efficacy, and engaging patients and their family members to improve their care experience. The following design themes or goals – dependable, safe patient care; value added healthcare processes; vitality and collaboration; and client- focused care – form the elementary framework when it comes to formulation of changes for accomplishing TCAB objectives (Rutherford, Moen & Taylor, 2009).
A number of elements set TCAB apart from other programs targeted at improving quality.…
Lack of Mental Treatment and Support
Introduction and Overview
Emergency departments (EDs) can play a major role in reducing the risk and occurrence of suicide, self-harm and harm caused to others by taking steps to create a safety plan for the patient (Stanley et al., 2018). However, many EDs do very little to actually assist patients in this regard. My own experience at Legacy Treatment Center, where I interned, allowed me to see as much. Legacy is in Lee County’s Screening Center for Mental Health Crisis and is located inside Main St Hospital, and patients from all over the county are processed through the Emergency Room. At Legacy, patients will be screened using the Columbia Assessment to see whether they are currently suicidal, homicidal or a danger to others. However, these patients are not offered counseling services. Instead, they are referred or voluntarily or involuntarily committed. The lack of any…
Elderly Australian Population A Therapeutic Approach for the Mentally Ill
Mood disturbances refer to a category of mental health issues that is utilized by mental health practitioners to describe all kinds of bipolar and depressive disorders broadly. A large number of individuals belonging to the senior population (65+ years of age) come in the high-risk group of the psychological illnesses development, substance abuse issues, neurological disorders, and other health issues like osteoarthritis, diabetes mellitus, and loss of hearing loss. Also, with age, individuals display a greater likelihood of experiencing several health issues simultaneously (WHO, 2017). More than 15 percent of individuals belonging to the senior age group are diagnosed with a neurological or psychological illness, with the latter group of illnesses accounting for 6.6 percent of all disabilities (DALYs- disability-adjusted life years) in this population group (WHO, 2017). Hence, this essay attempts to examine further the mood disturbance problem in…
The prevalence of post natal depression amongst women who have delivered
Pregnancy and birth are major life occurrences that are largely positive experiences for most women. Nonetheless, a percentage of women experience mental issues in this course of time. Statistics give the suggestion that on average, between 10 percent and 15 percent of women report having experienced depression. In fact, roughly 16 percent report experiences of severe anxiety during the post natal period. Postnatal depression is functionally delineated as a significant depressive period taking place within the initial 12 months subsequent to giving birth. Mothers who have given birth and are facing life with postnatal depression epitomize different feelings like nervousness, solitude, loss of control and desperateness during a period when anticipations of happiness are expected. These mental issues can have adverse effects on women and their infants. The main objective of this literature review is to comprehensively discuss…
The prevalence of depression and suicide in Australia has reached a crescendo, which requires a higher level of commitment from mental health workers in the country. It is believed that around 2.1 million (9.7) Australian population experience some level of affective disorders (Australian Bureau of Statistics, ABS 2012). The high rate of depression can also be traced to the upsurge in cases of death from intentional self-harm which rose from 2,866 in 2016 to 3,128 in 2017 (ABS, 2017). To effectively tackle the menace of depression and suicide in Australia, there is need for a higher level of alertness and awareness from mental healthcare professionals and members of the public. According to World Health Organisation, 300 million people of all ages worldwide suffer from depression. The world health body also highlighted several factors that put people at risk of depression. These factors range from economic, social, psychological and environmental issues.…
Gong et al. (2018) states that depressive symptoms and empty phenomenon of elderly people in rural areas is one of the major public health issues in China, which has one of the largest elderly population in the world. It is estimated that elderly people aged 60 years and more account for 15.5% of the Chinese population. In addition, empty-nest elderly families make up nearly 25% of older households in the country, which is projected to reach 90% by 2030. This implies that the country has entered a period of rapid aging, which has significantly increased in the 21st Century (Zhou et al., 2019). As the aging population increases, China continues to witness an increase in empty-net families due to the shrinking average family size (Zhang et al., 2019). Empty-nest elderly people are individuals aged 60 years and more who do not live with their children though they may live with…
Video Reaction: Tourette’s Syndrome
Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological condition, but it can have profound social effects upon a child’s life. People who are unaware of the cause of the child’s uncontrollable motions and verbal tics may assume the child has a developmental disability, ADHD, or a dissociative disorder. The video highlights how children with the disorder are often extremely bright and self-aware of the social effects of their disorder. The children understand that people are going to stare at them, because they are acting in a way that defies social norms. Even some of their teachers do not understand why the children cannot control their tics. One of the children was homeschooled for a period of time.
The most heartening aspect of the video is how the children have found that physical activities like surfing or music have provided them with a source of self-esteem and a way to…
Response to Colleague PostAs my colleague points out, the patient in this case presents with symptoms consistent with intermittent explosive disorder. This has been highlighted as the primary diagnosis. The alternative diagnosis was in this case hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and Anemia. In arriving at intermittent explosive disorder as the primary diagnosis, my colleague appears to have relied upon the patients presenting symptoms although this has not been explicitly indicated in the diagnostic impression section.It would be prudent to note that intermittent explosive disorder happens to be one of the least known mental health conditions. However, this does not make it any less harmful to the wellbeing of a person. In the words of Coccaro and McCloskey (2019), the disorder involves sudden outbursts of rage, aggression, or violence reactions tend to be irrational or out of proportion to the situation (89). Towards this end, the authors are categorical that some of…

However, integrated continuum of care networks presents a viable solution to mental health care delivery that properly allocates resources a collaborative and cooperative service delivery system.
Needed, according to Mohatt (1997) is "vertical integration' in the "approaches to managed care" in networking a group of healthcare providers, at various levels of primary care and behavioral health, to form an integrated service network. They seek to develop, via cooperation, a coordinated, consumer focused, seamless continuum of care designed to improve access and availability through efficiencies gained by the elimination of redundant services or systems."
Mohatt reports just such as system being in existence and specifically the Laurel Health System in northeastern Pennsylvania "founded in 1989 with the merger of five not-for-profit organizations..." This network spans the human service gamut inclusive of primary care, nursing homes, senior housing, ambulance service, and hospital." (1997) Mohatt reports another example stating:
recent example of such…

New findings show that the spouses of veterans also experience mental health disorders, and the prevalence increases with the length of deployment (Mansfield, Kaufman, Marshall, Gaynes, Morrissey & Engel, 2010). When spouses are considered to be clients of health services, the need for improved and more robust resources becomes apparent. Moreover, spouses with mental health disorders present unique issues and questions for treatment. eturning soldiers may find that they have supportive partners who can lead to a mutually beneficial treatment relationship, via couples or family therapy. On the other hand, the mental health problems of the spouse can exacerbate those of the soldier, and vice-versa. Thus, a family systems approach can be extremely helpful when addressing the multifaceted mental health concerns among veterans.
Veteran health services are at a critical juncture. The need for targeted mental health interventions, ranging from screenings and assessments to therapies and treatments, has been proven…

However, more empirical studies have been published in recent years which have both reported outcomes but also have acknowledged the complexity of the interaction of the number of variables involved in predicting outcome effects on children whose parents are substance abusers (Dworkin & Hirsch, 2004). This literature is particularly important because of the large number of children affected by substance abuse of various kinds and the social policy directed toward substance abuse offenders including parents.
Although the empirical research base is growing on the relationship of parental disability to child outcome effects (Emerick & Zirpoli, 2000) there continues to be a need for research that methodologically addresses specific critical parental disability factors.
Implementing Culturally Sensitive Crisis
In conclusion, when faced with an individual who is recognizably from a culture different from the crisis worker, some modification in approach will be considered. However, there is sufficient cultural diversity present in our…

Given this priest is able to coax and created situations where boys are with him alone is even worse. In short, the counselor in this situation has no choice but to step in and say/do something.
To make a final decision, it would normally be wise to do some information gathering and to truly find out for sure whether or not this man has offended or not. However, the only real way to do that is to prod the priest even more and/or to ask the children and/or parents what is going on, if anything, and that would probably not be the best idea, at least in the latter case. Any querying of children would have to be done with the full knowledge and consent of the parents, and this is true both ethically and legally, and even if such permission was not garnered it would get back to them…

Hughes proceeded to institute a system of "Confusing Military Structures," the www.CDNMilitary.casitecontinues. Battlefront unites were "constantly formed, disbanded, reformed and disbanded again"; and as though that wasn't enough, the Ross Rifle issue was another problem that Hughes' legacy is left with, according to the site. One army driver is quoted as saying, "To hell with the [Ross Rifle]. I'll take a club." In fact, Ross did not fully understand why soldiers objected to the use of the Ross Rifle, the military eb site claims, because even though Hughes "dressed up like a military officer while being Minister of the Militia," he was "nothing more than a civilian...and never did have to use the rifle in combat" (www.CDNMilitary.ca).
And the Ross Rifle wasn't the only snag in Hughes' pursuit of innovative wartime materials and technologies, the CNDMilitary site claims. Indeed, the "MacAdam shield-shovel" - termed a "Canadian-designed miracle" by Hughes, who…

Mental Health with Health Care Use and Cost: A Population Study" published in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry written by Cawthorpe, Guyn, Li and Lu (2011).
Cawthorpe, Guyn, Li and Lu (2011) report a study with the goals of comparing the health costs of two groups: (1) those with psychiatric diagnoses; and (2) those without psychiatric diagnoses. Nine years of billing data from physicians was used in the study. The methodology reported is that the dataset that contained registration data for the patients who were in receipt of public mental health service was "constructed and subsequently matched" according to sex and age. (p.490)
Sampling in the Study
It is reported that three groups emerged: (1) a comparison patient PD group; (2) comparison patients with psychiatric disorders in physicians only; and (3) patients without PDs treated in specialized care that was publicly funded or by their physicians. (Cawthorpe, Guyn, Li and…
