Neuroscience tells that each human being have a different and unique way of communicating, speaking, and interacting, and that humans have different experiences of conflicts that allows one human to connect with the other (Teitelbum, 2016). Having the power to communicate with one another is a privilege, but being able to connect and speak from the heart is a gift. Nursing is a profession that allows a person to give comfort and care through an effective communication which bridges in healing a person’s body. Being unable to positively communicate with the patient causes an enormous struggle in building a relationship between the patient and the nurse. This paper will point out the positive and negative communication a nurse used to interact with her patient and will offer alternatives to improve the nurse-patient relationship.
Some strengths the movie had on mental illness portrayal include society’s view on mental illness, a good depiction of the thoughts, and the wide spectrum of mental health. Susanna’s parents did not want their friends to know she was in a psychiatric hospital, which is a common occurrence for many families who believe the stigma against those with mental health problems are too strong and that they would rather protect their image than the mentality of their loved ones. The thoughts of each character do well to depict what the thoughts may be of someone actually with their disorder, according to the DSM-5. In addition, the film shows how different each mental illness can be, showing how “normal” Susanna seems along with BPD, or how “crazy” (how some patients are referred to in the film) Lisa seems with her sociopathic tendencies. Each character is evidence to how large the
With the first-person point of view from Chief, it allows the readers to see how insane he is and how confining the ward really is through his psychotic haze (Macky 4176).

Everyone in the ward is in a different state, some of the patients are worse off than others but through Chief’s narration the reader gets an insight of what really is happening on the ward and to them. It also adds development of the story as the story unfolds through Chiefs different states: emotional and intellectual (Novel for Students 227).
I believe Macbeth shows many signs of a bipolar disorder, one of the worst disorders. It causes one’s mind to change, to have bad mood swings to think the need everything or deserve it. Because of Macbeth’s mental disorder he devised his own demise. Macbeth shows signs when he shows signs of anxiety and violence. When he can’t make up his mind on what he wants to do.
Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects they way a person acts, think, and sees the world. The narrator from “The Tell-Tale Heart” acted very weirdly and had thoughts that no ordinary person would think.

The narrator from “The Tell-Tale Heart” is schizophrenic because he acts out in violence and has hallucinations of things that didn’t even exist.
This list is just an example and is in no way exact in what will happen in later life. Understand attachment contributes to the understanding what is involved in the commonness of mental health and challenging behaviour for people with an ID, 20-39% show problems with mental health (Hatton & Taylor2005), whereas the general population has 16-25% (Meltzer et al.1995).

Psychosis is a strange phenomenon as those who have it don’t realize they do. Often times, psychosis can be cured with therapy, but sometimes, it requires medication.

Mental illness impacts everyone at some point in one’s life. If severe enough, having a disorder can cloud one’s judgement to the point of committing acts of terror unknowingly.

Brain, as one of the most complicated part of the organs in human beings’ body, contains a lot of secrets which make human so special than other species. It also plays an essential role in our daily thought and reaction.
