Mental Health Social Welfare Policy


Hello everyone, my name is Joshua Martin, I’m going to discuss with you today mental health social welfare policy Mental health issues have been identified as a problem by society for many years Psychiatrists use a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, which is a publication of American Psychiatric Association Has a guide to diagnose a mental health disorder Follow the DSM contains hundreds of mental health diagnoses some of the diagnoses that are commonly identified by society are schizophrenia bipolar disorder depression anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder And any of these disorders makes it hard to hold a job communicate and have social support This is a problem because with the mental health issue Everyone thinks this is associated with violence Only a handful of patients with a mental health issue are associated with violence Mental Health America has fought for people who have mental health to improve the system that was mistreating shackling Including those who have mental health problems MHA is working towards ideals that include federal and legislative regulatory reform But bring in on key court cases Making the public understand the issues and working with other advocates to improve the system They are trying to help them fit in society better and make society understand how to interact with someone that has a mental illness Nagant writings mental health was considered a religious a personal problem And in Middle Ages, it was said that someone with mental illness was possessed or negative religion to get better This was gaining of a mental health stigma that continues to exist today in the 1840s and named Dorothea Dix lobbied for better living conditions for people who were mentally ill She was successful in her lobbying as it led to the US government funding 32 state psychiatric hospitals a 19-15 Society was no longer in favor other institutional care as they felt eleven conditions report and Human rights were being violated Which led to push for D institutionalized and more outpatient programs allow people to live in their communities according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness One in five adults express mental illness in a year with at least major life activity 1.1 percent adults lived with schizophrenia the point six percent lived with bipolar disorder Six point nine percent had at least one major depressive Episode within a year an eighteen point one percent of people have experienced an anxiety disorder social statistics demonstrate some of the struggles that people who suffer from a mental illness face, for example 26 percent of homeless people residing at home most home shelter by living with a mental illness 20 percent of state prisoners – 21 percent of local jail prisoners. I’ve had a recent history of a mental health condition Some mental illnesses that are untreated can interfere with a person’s ability to Interact with the community which could result in them being arrested He’s 41 percent of adults with mental illness engaged and treatment within the past year America spends 193 billion dollars per year on serious mental illnesses this expense affects society equally as taxes are raised to cover the cost of government programs like food stamps for housing assistance Law number s11 77961 gross the Mental Health System sign a law that provides comprehensive mental health services persons residing or working in a mental health service area the special attention this law required that 1% of people who had income million dollars or more this Caused people who was in this bracket to question why they’re worth only people getting taxed This act generated two hundred and five fifty four million in the year 2004 2005 and 683 million in the year 2005 to 2006 Because of this act the states were able to provide that care to the mentally ill people that needed it The general population of was fine with this act as it was able to get the help that people needed Before that before this law states States were not able to properly care for mentally ill To me, I think by increasing the taxes of the wealthy It was able to help the people on me if they were to tax the entire population the people who live in poverty will suffer the most As they can barely provide for themselves as it is Mental illness has been identified as an ongoing issue by society for many years Mental illness is surrounded by stigmas and began during ancient writings when society referred to those who suffer from mental illnesses as being possessed as information research and statistics computed all Over time so didn’t until how diagnosis and treatment Licensed providers continued to reference the diagnostic and statistical manual as a guide to diagnose mental illness DSM continues to evolve into new additions as more research need mental health such symptoms arise Mental health treatment has evolved over the years and will continue to evolve as new laws and policies are passed There are more communities being Opened that will not only allow people to receive help but it will also educate society the question that I have for everyone is do you think it was unfair the government to pass a law stating that only the people who made so much money was getting their tax increase This happened and overall tax increase or should the wealthy be the only ones that pay for this Vegas for the expense Why or why not?
