Despite JB expressing his dislike of being placed in seclusion, nursing and medical staff agreed JB’s capacity to make an informed autonomous decision was impaired due to his current mental distress. Roberts (2004) states that the paternalism in mental health is rationalized through the concept that mental illness can inhibit a persons’ competency and ability to act autonomously in the governance of their care and therefore principles of beneficence and non-maleficence must be introduced to ensure that person receives adequate care. Prinsen & van Delden (2009) also argue that coercive measures such as seclusion can be necessary in reclaiming personal autonomy and control. However this paternalistic viewpoint of overruling a patient’s autonomy is arguable especially if a person is deemed incompetent due to their mental illness.

By allowing patients to provide care for themselves, they develop a sense of confidence and can assist them in overcoming obstacles in care. Per Meleis (2012), “Orem’s theory is categorized as a theory whose primary focus provides a framework for assessing needs of clients and developing intervention in enhancing peoples’ abilities to manage daily care for themselves and their dependents, and conserve their energy, and

This addiction counseling will thrive by initially assisting this client with identifying his existing obstruction in his life like the painkillers, his illogical thinking and assessments.

Although he has his own self-interest, also knowing well that the others unlike him are really ill, he developed a sincere desire to resuscitate the men he came to know. Chief is the only one who gets true freedom from the captivity of the mental hospital and the captivity of his illness. According to the web dictionary cuckoo is mad or crazy.

Many of the homeless who live in the street suffer from addictions and mental disorders which can probably be one of the reasons why is somewhat difficult to help them.
