Mental Illness Shouldn't Be Disregarded "The only shameful thing about mental illness is the stigma attached to it". Only 25% of people with mental health issues feel that people are caring and sympathetic towards their struggles, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There are a wide variety of "mental illnesses" which can all affect a person in different ways, some issues can compound things and lead to feelings that the only option is to lash out at the world and make them feel the pain they feel inside, i.e. school shootings and homicides. While others feel the need to lash out on themselves instead. Instead of disregarding these issues, we must bring mental health issues out into the sunlight, deal with it, treat people, and have centers where people can get the necessary help they may need.
Health inequalities are a result of unequal exposure to risk factors associated with socio-economic inequalities, such as social, economic and environmental conditions (Thomson, Bambra, McNamara, Huijts, & Todd, 2016). These inequalities in health, between people belonging to different socio-economic groups, were firstly recognized in the Nineteenth century, when public health figures in different European countries dedicated their studies to these issues (Mackenbach, 2006). Villermé (1782-1863), conducted a study in Paris, and showed districts with lower socio-economic statuses had higher mortality rates compared to neighborhoods with a higher socio-economic status, and came to the conclusion that life and death are related to social circumstances

Major Ethical Issues of Solitary Confinement Solitary confinement can affect a person’s physical and mental health simply because it deprives an individual of their need to interact with others on a daily basis. Solitary confinement, which is used to restrain violent and volatile inmates from the general prison population, is done in increments ranging from several months to years. In an article retrieved from the American Psychological Association, ‘Alone, in ‘the Hole’’, the author states that, “for most of the 20th century, prisoners' stays in solitary confinement were relatively short.” This was the standing rule, in which inmates visited what is known as ‘the hole’, for several weeks to months. As time went by, the average length of stay

Poverty has long plagued society and has never possessed a feasible or apparent solution. As the phenomenon is so ingrained within societies across the world, numerous studies have been conducted by various institutions looking to document its effects. Most all of the results have found them to be adverse, but specifically to a very vulnerable subset of the world’s population, children.

Causes like those of hunger, unstable housing, and lack of funding lead to poor performance, worse standardized test scores, and a lack of social development and belonging among peers.

The methodological issues and challenges that are unique to psychological research when it comes to investigating effective treatment for psychological disorders in mental health and social welfare services may be ignored at times. With consistently smaller budget allocations for mental health, many federally funded programs are being radically changed, some severely curtailed, and the relationship between government and private sector providers is being realigned (Inouye, 1983; Klerman, 1974). In addition, state and local government agencies that were expected to reimburse mental health programs for federal shortfalls in funding, have not been universally successful in meeting this challenge (NIMH, 1991). Therefore, new research into the
Socioeconomic Inequality Poverty is becoming increasingly more prevalent due to the growing divide between the upper and lower classes in the United States.

Education is harder to obtain in classes that are economically unstable.
