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.
“Depression is an illness that occurs episodically and can be described adequately in medical terms (Kanter et al,2008).” This one reason as to why it is not perceived as a major problem, the fact that it comes and goes people see it as people making excuses to get out of doing things for example work or school. Sociology, Depression is a barrier that unless we start acknowledging it as a real illness, then we won’t be able to properly communicate and understand those who are suffering with this illness. Furthermore, Society does not grasp depression as a social problem, but rather a personal problem. One suffering through depression, because it is just them suffering it doesn’t have any impact on society. This is a false ideal that society has believed and fed through mass media.
Introduction The massive influx of refugees increasing over the decades is a phenomenon that has altered many countries around the globe. When thinking about refugees, for many, the first countries that come to mind are the United States, Canada or Australia. However, a special focus will be given to Sweden and to a specific type of refugees, quota refugees. The goal of this paper is to answer the following question: how does education promote the acculturation processes and the employability among quota refugees in Sweden? First, I will provide some definitions to give better a understanding of this topic and will also discuss about Sweden’s history dealing with quota refugees.
Leaving in denial of their mental illnesses makes it difficult for caregivers to provide them with the necessary care. Others, refuse treatment since their culture do not allows it and that may affect the effectiveness of the culturally competent caregivers. Language barrier is also an issue since some of the refugees cannot express themselves in English. That brings a challenge to the healthcare providers since they cannot understand what the refugees are saying. Some of the refugee women have negative attitude towards the healthcare being provided.
Although the disorders beneath this condition aren't completely inherited, they might have a small family inheritance. You won't locate this disorder in the healthcare books. It's a disorder of the intestines where the large intestine doesn't function adequately. This form of syndrome is a life threatening and has to be treated appropriately. The reason for the syndrome is unknown, but researchers think that disruption of the development of the fetus leads to the problems to develop.
Lastly, felt stigma was much more disruptive to one’s life as compared to enacted stigma (Scambler, 2009). The life story of a discredited person will be skewed by enacted stigma as their illness was clearly apparent to other people to discriminate while discreditable condition will not stigmatize as long as they remain hidden (Scambler,
It is not merely physical conflict or violence but political, socio-economic, legal and religious structural forces that can subject people to psychological harm and mal-development- it differs from direct violence. Apart from this, it erases the history and consciousness of the social origin of poverty, premature death, illness, starvation so that they could not be taken for granted and accepted so that no-one is held accountable except the poor themselves. The relationship between structural violence and health is a reflexion that patterns of health around the world are mostly shaped by social, political and economic condition; take for example someone who does not have a medical aid, unemployed, lives in isolated rural area where access to health service is partial and suffering from HIV, As far as I know that particular person’s condition will deteriorate because he/she does not have access to Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) - this explains human rights violation.
Even if doctors decide to take these difficult operations, the fear will inhibit their ability to perform at their peak performance and may lead to small errors which may prove fatal to the patients. Moreover, these mistakes do not only harm the patients, but it also cause mental scar to those physicians as well as traumatize them. This will then cause depressions which further lead to severe fatigue, and fewer emotions (“Anxiety vs. depression,” n.d.). The depression’s nature then comes in as it suppresses people’s ability to think, making physicians think that there is no hope for the situation to get better and ultimately, lead to suicidal acts (“Anxiety vs. depression,”
Description:- Part -1 Migration crisis Migration crisis is the term subjected to European Migrant or refuse crisis. In the year between 2007 to 2011 large number of undocumented or unnoticed migrants has come from Middle East and Africa and crossed the border and reached to Europe and Turkey. Because of this European border protection agency has upgraded their policy. 2012 they reached to Greece and they build the fence in greek Turkish area which do not follow Maritsa river. Due to this situation they have made a plan to make asylum and that is termed as migration crisis, which caused due to the unnoticed and undocumented people come to Europe.
This then leads to mass forced migration within and between countries inadvertently reducing human security through environmental degradation, inadequate sanitation and increased health problems. There is also a lack of access to food and physical insecurity, thus giving rise to further humanitarian emergencies. The physical costs of war contribute to adverse human and social effects through damage to hospitals, schools, roads and bridges, vital in the provision of necessary services,
