[M1] – Assess the effects on those using the service of three different discriminatory practices in health and social care The people affected by discriminatory practice in health and social care settings goes mildly effected to severely affected. In my opinion, I think that how the person is personally effects them the most, because if person A being discriminated against is very soft hearted and takes offence to the slightest things, will be very affected. Vice versa, if person B is not soft hearted and is very emotionally strong but the discrimination happening is very harsh; the person might also be affected very badly. One example could be that in a care home for senior/retired residents, a homosexual male carer that works for them

Without treatment, symptoms may worsen, leading (in extreme cases) to suicide attempts There is an ongoing debate between clinicians and patients worldwide regarding the term Borderline, and some suggest it be renamed, and called Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder. There is concern that the diagnosis of BPD stigmatizes people and is a discriminatory practice. It is common for those suffering from BPD and their families to feel confused by a lack of clear diagnosis, effective treatments and accurate information.
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)
While there is no known cure for Crohn's disease, therapies can greatly reduce the signs and symptoms of Crohn's disease and even bring about long-term remission. With treatment, many people with Crohn's disease are able to function well (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2011). Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition with a relapsing-remitting disease course. Treatment often requires both induction and maintenance strategies. The management of mild to moderate Crohn’s disease is challenging because the natural history of mild disease is not known and effective treatment options are limited (Wong & Bressler, 2008).
The stress of abuse could trigger chest pain or angina, and may be a factor in other serious heart problems. High blood pressure, breathing problems, stomach problems (ulcers), and panic attacks are common stress-related symptoms among older people who experience abuse. Other long term effects could be a loss of mobility, depression, anxiety, changes in behaviour, behavioural issues and negative relationships. Many adults experiencing abuse are isolated. Individuals who abuse adults often threaten, harass, or intimidate them.

When deciding to take on the role of caretaker, certain problems have been known to arise. Assuming the role of caretaker can pose a threat physically and emotionally to a person. Caregivers suffer in the forms of “sleeplessness, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and impaired immunological responses that result in increased use of psychotropic drugs” (Marziali, Elsa, et al. 2005: 376). Author Jo Danna describes caretaker suffering to come in the forms of discouragement of being unable to stop the disease from progressing even with one on one care, resentment of the energy, time and money spent, self-loathing because of losing patience with an Alzheimer’s sufferer who means no intentional harm, frequent sicknesses such as colds or headaches, lack of time for oneself and the things one enjoys, cutting oneself off from friends and other family members to put the patient first, and severe depression due to a combination of these factors(90).
