However, not everybody is able to access the said services. Ayanian (2015) wrote that the key indicator of inequities in health outcomes is racial disparities. Disparities in health care matter because they limit the overall improvements in quality of care. Today, it is undeniable that many groups face risks because of being uninsured. Other than that, they lack access to care.
In the editorial "The health crisis of mental health stigma," the editorial utilizes ethos pathos, and logos, to shed light on the crisis of mental health. According to the editorial mental health is not seen as a significant health issue as others are. This issue is overlooked by many peoples and doctors. The two strongest rhetorical appeals that this editorial uses and applies very well are ethical appeal and logical appeal. Also, manages to include an emotional appeal.
The mental health care system in the United States is known to be flawed. The majority of other countries with lower gun death rates have drastically better mental health care systems, although these systems are still far from ideals. However, mental illness is still prevalent in many other countries other than America, so the United States needs to stop using it as an excuse for the abhorrently disproportionate rates of firearm violence that prevail in the country. It would soon be discovered that fixing the mental health care system could not possibly solve the entire gun control and violence issue, because there are, first of all, many health conditions that are very difficult to diagnose. One of these is Bipolar Disorder.
Despite the progress in understanding the causes of mental illness and the tremendous advances in finding effective mental health treatments, far less is known about the mental health of minorities. Race, ethnicity, culture, language, geographic region, and other social factors affect the perception, availability, utilization, and, potentially, the outcomes of mental health services. Across racial and ethnic groups, a significant financial barrier also greatly affects mental health and the path to getting needed mental health care. Every society influences mental health treatment by how it organizes, delivers, and pays for mental health services. Therefore the provision of high quality, culturally and language appropriate mental health services, in locations accessible to racial and ethnic minorities, is essential to creating a more equitable
It is a controversial diagnosis. Some psychologists believe that the disorder is very rare and that the increase in its prevalence since the 1980s is due to over diagnosis. These theorists point out that the presentation of dissociative identity disorder often changes according to its representation in the media. Others have suggested that clinicians sometimes induce this disorder in highly suggestible people. Some psychologists, however, believe that dissociative identity disorder is not rare and has only been unrecognized and underdiagnosed in the
Although these two philosophers share a few similarities in their views, their accounts are starkly contrasting. Marquis could raise several objections to Tooley’s philosophy. In particular, he would question Tooley’s criteria for a right to life. It seems as if Tooley’s criteria essentially entails being self-autonomous and having developed into an adult to some degree- at least to the extent at which one is self aware. Marquis might argue, based on Tooley’s account, that a medical patient who is unconscious and unaware of a possible treatment is undeserving of medical attention, although that may seem contrary to the popular stance.
Isolation is Unhealthy for the Brain and Body Isolating from the public allows so much of a difference to be made in mental health which leads to physical health. Without public interaction, humans will not have the estate of normality. Isolation is destructive to the body. In “The Yellow Wallpaper” ,a short story, and Social Disconnectedness, Perceived Isolation, and Health among Older Adults, explains how mental health generates to physical health in a way that is very invidious. Social isolation is not only unhealthy to younger adults, but it also causes older adults to feel socially disconnected and seemingly isolated.
Although the film reduces the stereotypes of schizophrenia, it does tend to overdramatize in certain scenes. The lack of medications used to push forth treatment of family is unrealistic (News), for schizophrenia cannot be helped with just family support. There was also controversy in Nash’s age (News), it is proven that men are diagnosed earlier than women (as stated above) and Nash was not diagnosed until he was in his 30’s. Lastly were the controversies with Nash’s hallucinations. In schizophrenia, auditory (voices) hallucinations are more common than visual hallucinations (Chaudhury).
To bridge the gap, the underlying mental illnesses that are not addressed cause more significant damage to others which results in more mental illnesses. The access to care and treatment is limited to Natives which is what I want to change. Currently, most Native Americans cannot seek adequate treatment due to economic barriers, they cannot pay for doctors or subsequent pills. Additionally, access to mental health services can be limited due to location, health insurance and the lack of awareness. By going to Dartmouth I hope to expand these ideas of mental health awareness because it’s results could be an increase in Natives finishing high school and college creating a more educated generation.
One reason that explains why immigrants do not seek help is the language barrier that immigrants struggle with. The fact that “mental health treatment relies on direct verbal communication rather than objective tests as for physical illness …” (Kim et al., 2011, p.104) makes it really difficult for immigrants with low English proficiency levels to accurately describe their symptoms to a doctor further isolating them without receiving professional help. Many cultures also consider mental health issues “taboo” and might not have direct translations for such issues. (Simich, 2010, p.20). Another factor is the stigma that many cultures attach to mental health issues.
Bernstein’s account of social security is more accurate, because of the fact that only 80 percent benefited from the social security programs. Those included, unemployment insurance, benefits for children, such as medical assistance needed, and Retire benefits. Bernstein “exaggerates” for the good things that he will do in the United States, and the people are leaving out. Those included farm workers, domestic help and sharecroppers. The programs like the social security didn’t really benefit the people and the new deal was not looking so great.
In reviewing “Political Irony” there were three keys points regarding reviews of Obamacare that left me confused as well as lost in its benefits. It appeared that the Obamacare provides an incomplete explanation of it benefits to the public. Although are some advantage to the people who has preexisting conditions and the people who had no insurance, yet it did not appear that much progress have been given to the people that could cannot afford to pay for health care. The Obamacare provides an incomplete explanation of it benefits to the public, it does not give details of the benefit of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. What is the take away for people who want to know what they are paying for?
Another analysis also shows that the there is the grant is given to those that my not be benefiting from it the way the government wanted it too. In Figure 1.2 it shows the average number of grant recipients who graduate compared to non-recipients. Looking at this figure we see that it is also split among demographic areas. Looking at this we see that although many minorities do succeed better with the Pell Grant, they still fall short compared to the majority white, early 20s with an English speaking background. The issues that cause this are that while the grant does give some money the analysis shows it is not enough.
There are aspects of Medicaid, especially for low-income populations, where it is really almost better to have instead of private coverage. In Medicaid, there are very low copays and no deductibles, but Medicaid recipients are more likely to report having difficulty finding a provider or delaying care because their health care coverage is not widely accepted.
There is scarce data with respect to how diagnosis, treatment, education and research has been conducted in tertiary care centers for epilepsy treatment. Tertiary care centers play an important role with respect to neurologists education on PNES, its comorbidities and differential diagnosis. Providing a comprehensive approach across centers may provide more knowledge about PNES, beyond the current emphasis on psychoeducational measures, and the use of psychoactive drugs and AEDs. In addition, more regional health-care policies are also necessary because of relevant differences in health-care systems and consequently in the HCPs ' attitudes and their difficulties, such as limited access to VEEG and referral to effective psychotherapy for PNES. Typically, neurologists are the first to encounter, diagnose, and provide initial treatment for patients with NES, and then sometimes refer the patients for treatment in psychiatric settings
