Some mental illnesses have been linked to an abnormal balance of special chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters help nerve cells in the brain communicate with each other. If these chemicals are out of balance or are not working properly, messages may not make it through the brain correctly, leading to symptoms of mental illness. In addition, defects in or injury to certain areas of the brain have also been linked to some mental conditions.
Other biological factors that may be involved in the development of mental illness include:
Psychological factors that may contribute to mental illness include:
Certain stressors can trigger an illness in a person who is susceptible to mental illness. These stressors include:
Mental health legislation is largely used in the management of psychiatric disorders, such as dementia or psychosis, and developmental disabilities, where a person does not possess the ability to act in a legally competent manner and requires treatment and/or another person to act in his or her best interests. The laws generally cover the requirements and procedures for involuntary commitment and compulsory treatment in a psychiatric hospital or other facility.
In some jurisdictions, court orders are required for compulsory treatment; in others, psychiatrists may treat compulsorily by following set procedures, usually with means of appeal or regular scrutiny to ensure compliance with the law.
8. Discuss the major themes in the government guidance, "Modernising the Care Programme Approach" and the implications for practice. I can't find this one; you may have a copy of this?9. Discuss the tension between 'care and control' in current legislation and guidance. I would guess that in order to give care to those unable to take care of themselves, this gives the govt. a certain level of 'control' over them, and this creates a sticky situation for the govt. so as to not be wrongly accused of mistreatment. The patient must be treated with respect and fairness and not just "institutionalized" and cast off.
I hope this was somewhat helpful to you... without your text/class lectures/readings, etc.... this type of answer is very challenging for us! But, I gave it my best shot!!
