Social isolation, poor housing, unemployment and poverty are all linked to mental ill health. So stigma and discrimination can trap people in a cycle of illness. The situation is exacerbated by the media. Media reports often link mental illness with violence, or portray people with mental health problems as dangerous, criminal, evil, or very disabled and unable to live normal, fulfilled lives. 2.2 How mental illness can have an impact on the individual: Psychologically: - person may become paranoid and therefore exclude him or her self -person may become paranoid and therefore hurt others who she/he fears will try to hurt him/her -person may become isolated and therefore out of touch with other people and reality in general -person may feel unloved even if it is not true -person may feel like he/she is a threat to society and therefore attempt suicide emotionally: -person may feel isolated, unloved, paranoid, panicked and non-human (read Francis Kafka's The Metamorphosis)
Even though it is already legal, at first when it became legal it spread around quickly. The fear was that doctors would be basically killing patients who maybe have psychological problems and have nothing to do with being physically ill. There was a statement made where it said: “Dutch doctors have gone from killing the severely ill, to the disabled and even the depressed who aren’t physically sick.” In addition too, this case about assisted suicide is iffy because under age patients like 18 year old may ask for it if they do have a problem and are in contact with a physician. The problem with that is maybe they aren’t sure of what they want and are taking the toll on their lives. The way of looking at this is giving medical care and love and compassion to these people.
Such therapies became widely used because doctors and nurses wanted to offer patients cutting-edge treatment. ECT and lobotomy, however, reinforced an old and persistent image of asylums as intimidating places of last resort. Many mental hospitals closed in the 1970s and 1980s. This was due to pressure from the antipsychiatry movement, feminist criticism, ex-patient activism and political suspicion of large, unaccountable institutions. Other mental hospitals were converted to ‘short-stay’ treatment centres - a policy enabled by new psychiatric drugs.
With this being the case, antipsychotic medications often have side effects that need to be monitored regularly by the health professionals (Young et al, 2011). Compliance is often a challenge with patients either because of the unmanageable side effects they experience or through limited insight. It is a role of the health professionals involved in the care to closely monitor this behaviour, as the effectiveness of the treatment may be affected (Young et al, 2011). Keller, Drexler &Lichtenberg (2009) discuss the benefits of treating paranoid schizophrenia with atypical antipsychotic medication clozapine and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). However both forms of treatment are linked with harsh side effects.
This was a cruel and diabolic mistreatment of vulnerable individuals unable to defend themselves. Where were the staff who should have been reporting these crimes to management , if management was not listening then they should have been reported to the authorities and organisations, such as social services and cqc that is what they are there for. The staff who didn`t abuse patients but didn`t report the incidents are just as abusive and responsible, as they were employed to help with patient’s welfare. Two carers were moving a patient from a bed to a chair using a hoist. They placed the hoist sling underneath the patient and then attached it to the hoist.
The doctors can't accurate diagnose or understand what or why a patient is feeling a certain way, so the corrupt medical establishment gives them this nonsense to spew. These side effects are primarily phase 1 but are a constant problem across the board. Notice the root word of fibromyalgia is fib[e]r, it's not a coincidence.

At the beginning of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest the patients in the psychiatric ward are kept under control because they have been taught to be afraid. There are two types of patients in the ward: Acutes and Chronics. Acutes are those “still sick enough to be fixed” whereas the Chronics, are so mentally damaged they "can't be repaired". The characters, who are mostly Acutes, fear that if they stand up for themselves they will be subjected to worse treatment that may leave them as Chronic patients. Ellis and Ruckly are examples of Acutes that were turned into Chronics by the use of Elctro Shock Therapy and the use of surgery to lobotomize.
While in the early stages of the deinstitutionalization the methods were radical and released patients from hospitals most programs were not well thought out or implemented. The hope was to give more hope to the mentally ill than the harm they were experiencing. Although this process created havoc and concern for society, it has evolved through the years and involves more than simply changing the locus of care for people. The today’s treatment involves a more tailored need to each individual, hospital care to those who need it, services culturally relevant,
They believe that it would be better if nurses only practice under the guidance and supervision of the doctor. They believe that allowing them to practice independently would be detrimental to their patients (Mills, 2009). They would be prone to some misdiagnosis, failure to attend to less obvious, but potentially life-threatening problems as well as prescriptive errors. In fact, they maintained that many deaths in the hospital would be realized due to errors made in prescriptions. According to them, nurses however much trained and experienced lack skills to manage and deal with complex living with multi-system diseases.
M1: Assess the effects on those using the service of THREE different discriminatory practices in health and social care. Marginalisation: treat a person or group as insignificant Marginalisation: GP Surgery An individual using this service may feel that their GP is treating them unfairly because of their sexual orientation. This could have many negative impacts on the individual, such as: feeling upset, angry, worthless, lowered self-esteem, they could feel as though they are losing their self-identity. All of the above could create a barrier for the individual to visit the GP because of the discrimination they are facing. They won’t be able to share their problems with their GP because the GP doesn’t consider the individual as important.
