WIRTZ, Veronika J; RUSSO, Giuliano y KAGEYAMA-ESCOBAR, Ma de la Luz. Access to medicines by ambulatory health service users in Mexico: an analysis of the national health surveys 1994 to 2006. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2010, vol.52, n.1, pp.30-38. ISSN 0036-3634.. OBJECTIVE: To analyse the medicines prescription, prescription filling, payment expenditure for medicines by ambulatory health service users (HSU) in 2006, and to evaluate its evolution in the last 12 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Using data from the National Health Surveys in 2006 three binary logistic regression models were constructed to identify the variables associated with the prescription rate, prescription filling and payment for medicines in 2006. The results of access to medicines were compared to the ones from previous National Health Services from 1994 and 2000. RESULTS: The type of health service provider was found to be the most important predictors of access to medicines. Although the proportion of HSU obtaining a ...
This thesis is my autoethnographic account as I pursue a career as a Service User Representative with the Dorset Mental Health Forum over several years leading up to 2010. This is a period of change in both the social care and health worlds as they impact on to people suffering from mental distress. In this period are introduced Personal Budgets and a three-year pilot scheme to look at the viability of rolling out Personal Health Budgets, in which Dorset is selected as one of 20 sites nationally. There is also a change of government from a Labour administration to a coalition of the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties, but this does not seem to have changed the planned modernisation of both social care provision and healthcare provision started by the outgoing Labour government. Also in this period we see the wide-ranging revision of the Mental Health Act 1983. My original contribution to knowledge is in describing the development of a service user representative model that works well in ...
In Western nations, the Recovery approach has become a widely accepted philosophy and treatment concept in mental health. Yet, community understanding of the Recovery approach remains largely unexplored. This study aimed to investigate (i) peoples awareness of the principles underpinning the Recovery approach in mental health, and (ii) the treatment approaches people consider most important, and whether these align with the Recovery approach. To achieve these aims, a random sample of 1217 Australian adults participated in the National Social Survey (QSS) via telephone interview. Peoples experience with mental health services, the importance they place on various treatment approaches, and their awareness of principles underpinning the Recovery approach were assessed. Analyses were conducted using descriptive statistics. Most participants (94%) agreed that regardless of the severity of symptoms experienced and/or the mental illness diagnosis, being diagnosed with a mental illness means there is ...
A recent phenomenon is that people with schizophrenia are at higher than average risk of physical ill health, and die earlier than the general population from natural causes. The fatal conditions include cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic disorders. Although death by suicide in schizophrenia has received much needed attention, death from cardiovascular disease is far more common, accounting for up to 75 percent of deaths. The causes of physical health problems include factors associated with mental illness and its treatment, poverty, poor housing, higher rates of smoking, poor diet and lack of exercise. Despite the high rates of physical health problems, mental health service users report that health care workers overlook their physical health needs. Service users would like mental health practitioners to do more for their physical health. Rethink interviewed 2,998 mental health service users, over half of whom lived with a diagnosed severe mental illness. Nearly one third said regular ...

In order to provide sound, person-centred care, mental health nursing students need a thorough understanding of theory alongside the ability to translate this knowledge into practice. It can be difficult to apply ideas from the classroom and books when learning how to work with mental health service users for the first time. That is why the theoretical aspects of this book are presented alongside realistic accounts of nursing practice.
SUGAR (Service User and carer Group Advising on Research) was established in 2009 to support the engagement, involvement and collaboration of mental health service users and carers in a programme of mental health nursing research. The project sought to ensure public involvement through all stages of the research process and develop meaningful relationships over a five-year period ...
Description. This video is one of a series that can be downloaded from this website. This series of videos explore different perspectives of mental distress. Mental health service users and carers posed questions to proponents of various approaches. The aim was to explore the views of the interviewees in relation to issues of promoting recovery, finding meaning in distress experiences and the causes and contributory factors related to mental distress. There are five perspectives explored in this series, they are Social Perspectives on Mental Distress, Cognitive Behavioural Perspectives on Mental Distress, Biomedical Model of Mental Distress, Critical Perspectives on the Biomedical Model of Mental Distress and User Carer Perspectives on Mental Distress. All 15 videos can be found in this resource ...
The In-patient ward is under threat of closure, within 100 days, at NHS centre for integrative care, in Gartnavel Hospital Complex. This hospital offers support for some of the most seriously ill people in Scotland who have exhausted all other NHS treatment options and for those who can clinically benefit from access to NHS holistic treatment.. The hospital cares for people with long-term, chronic, often incurable, life-limiting and often multiple health conditions from throughout Scotland, who will have nowhere else to go should the ward at this hospital close, as this is the only one of its kind in the UK with access to in-patient beds and is the reason the hospital achieves such successful outcomes. The First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Health have the power and authority to actively intervene and give the hospital national or ring-fenced funding which would secure its long-term future.. I have been an in-patient here for 5 days earlier this year, and on leaving my words to the senior ...
A total of 111 people in California took their own lives using lethal prescriptions during the first six months of a law that allows terminally ill people to request life-ending drugs from their doctors, according to data released Tuesday. They were among 191 people in the state who received the prescriptions from their doctors; not…
A federal investigation has found that Louisiana unnecessarily isolates and segregates thousands of mentally ill people in costly nursing facilities instead of providing them with community-based services.
Fountain House is an organization that takes care of the mentally ill people in New York. It began over 70 years ago and now leads in the category of organizations that look into the interests of the mentally ill people. The programs they are rolling out have proved to be very useful, and as a result, other organizations and governments have coped their business model. Fountain House has been a success due to the support it has received from professionals. Jeremy Goldstein, a leading legal practitioner in New York, is a member of the board. He is using his professional experience to help this organization to implement programs that will have a far-reaching impact in the lives of the mentally ill people..

Sinn Féin Health Spokesperson Carál Ní Chuilín is calling on the Minister of Health Michael McGimpsey set up a pilot programme to ensure that cancer patients and their carers get the support they need throughout the palliative care period.. The Assembly will debate a motion from Mc Ní Chuilín tomorrow, Monday 10th December, on Delivering Choice for the Terminally Ill.. Ms Ní Chuilín said:. In the North of Ireland almost 4,000 people die every year from Cancer. Yet, out of the 64 % of terminally ill people who would choose to die at home, only 25 % are actually able to do so. After meeting with Marie Curie I sought this debate because terminally ill people will continue to be unable to die in their place of choice unless action is soon taken.. We desperately need a Delivering Choice programme which will address this inequality and pioneer a new approach to the provision of palliative care for terminally people, making the wish to die at home a reality.. Cancer is a very difficult ...

Serious chronic illness undermines the unity between body and self and forces identity changes. To explicate how the body, identity, and self intersect in illness, one mode of living with impairment, adapting, is explicated in this article. Adapting means altering life and self to accommodate to bodily losses and limits and resolving the lost unity between body and self. It means struggling with rather than against illness. The process of adapting consists of three major stages: (1) experiencing and defining impairment, (2) making bodily assessments and, subsequently, identity trade-offs, as ill people weigh their losses and gains and revise their identity goals, and (3) surrendering to the sick self by relinquishing control over illness and by flowing with the experience of it. Adapting seldom occurs only once. Rather chronically ill people are forced to adapt repeatedly as they experience new losses. The data consist of 115 interviews about experiencing chronic illness and 25 more focused ...

Anil Valiv. a Transport Officer from Delhi took this opportunity and turned it into a revolutionary idea. He launched a matrimonial site for HIV positive people. HIV treatment has grown with time, now an HIV Positive patient not only can live, he or she can live and have a normal life with the help of proper treatment, and the transmission of the disease from a mother to her baby can be avoided too. We also as a society has come a long way since the Chuune se nhi Falti days and we now are aware of the fact that it is a disease and it has its own way of transmission and not by touching.

For people with long-term mental illness, rates of employment are low. Eight per cent of people with long-term disabilities of working age in Great Britain have a mental health difficulty as their main problem, and in this group 18% were in employment in 2000. This figure is significantly lower than that for people with long-term disabilities but no mental health difficulty, of whom 52% were in employment in 2000 ( Office for National Statistics, 2000).. Mental health service users have much in common with other disability groups. All experience a process whereby they are excluded from normal social roles and entitlements, which in turn can lead to the internalisation of the sick or patient role as the dominant feature of their lives. Employment can halt or reverse the disabling process. However, users of mental health services face more significant barriers to work than do people with other disabilities: only people with a severe learning disability find more difficulty in obtaining paid ...
Over the last decade there have been significant developments and debates that seek to highlight the disadvantages experienced by people who use mental health services. This report provides a unique insight into how mental health advocacy has failed to reflect and address the specific needs of Black and ethnic minority communities.The report concludes with recommendations and discusses the need to address a range of key issues such as access, language and communication, funding and implementation.The report will be of interest to practitioners and policy makers working in the fields of mental health and advocacy, both in statutory and voluntary services, as well as Black mental health service users and self-help groups.

There is little or no general prevalence data of self-harm in mental health service users. The methods of self-harm can be divided into two broad groups: self-poisoning and self-injury. About 80% of people who present to emergency departments following self-harm will have taken an overdose of prescribed or over-the-counter medication (Horrocks et al.,2003 ...
Dear Friend I just want to thank you for the great idea of Blogging against Disablism Day 2009. May 1st is also my Birthday. So it seems a great day to have it on. I write blogs for Community Care and the Guardian. I write as a mental health service user who is also keen to support and be involved in the broader disabled peoples movement as well as the survivors movement. I think our greatest strength against the disablism and mentalism we face is to link up and gain in understanding of each other and our different experiences and the common discrimination we face. I think that there are lots of similarities as well as differences in the disablism facing survivors and other disabled people. I really value the idea of uniting our efforts, thats why i think this is a great idea. All the very best from peter (beresford) ...

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Amendments seem to be the flavour of the season with Ministries trying to outdo each other in amending legislations related to disability. However, they seem more keen on quick fix measures. According to sources, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is now planning to amend the outdated Mental Health Act of 1987. But this too, is now mired in controversy.. The Ministry has reportedly assigned the task of conducting a consultative process and suggesting draft amendments to Dr. Soumitra Pathare of Pune, noted mental health expert and human rights activist. However, a section of the sector feels that the process of amendments is being looked at in a very narrow manner.. In a letter to Dr. Pathare, Dr. Achal Bhagat, Director, Sarthak, said, Under U.N.C.R.P.D., it is the responsibility of the State to consult all stakeholders before formulating changes in legislation. The State cannot delegate this responsibility to one individual. An individual, any individual, can ...
The Court has now considered the question of whether Mental Health Act assessments by AMHPs and medical practitioners can be carried out remotely (e.g. via video) - see Devon Partnership NHS Trust v Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

Background: Frequent users of the emergency department (ED) can result in overcrowding, compromised quality of care, increased cost, and reduced efficiency. It is hypothesized that case management interventions can decrease the amount of ED visits, therefore improving quality of care, improving patient outcome, and lowering costs. Objectives: The purpose of this integrative literature review was to identify if case management interventions are an effective way to decrease the number of visits in frequent users of the ED. Method: An integrative literature review was conducted by searching ProQuest, CINAHL, and PubMed databases. Search terms included
The United Kingdom leads the way in service user-led research,1 in large part because many funding agencies require it.2 Theory, research, and the so-called evidence-based practice in the United States lag far behind those by our colleagues in the United Kingdom. In the United States, the traditional funding structures of the National Institutes of Health and the like are generally not inclusive of patients or health service users as leaders and collaborators. Although there have been some requests for proposals for community-based participatory research projects, they are few and far between and they do not always require true leadership of patients or service users.. Although funding for community-based participatory studies is limited, some US-based researchers3,4 approach knowledge development using these methods, which have been especially useful for phenomena of concerns of traditionally underrepresented or vulnerable populations. My own community-based participatory research on the ...

Results. Few employers (6.8%) had ever cooperated with mentally ill persons, even fewer (4.4%) had had some experience in hiring such people. As much as 48% of the employers were of the opinion that only 10% of the people who had suffered from mental illness are capable of keeping a paid job. Almost 60% would refer an employee to a medical professional having found out about his/her mental illness, 24.5% would discontinue the hiring process and one in ten would dismiss such a person. 92% of the employers expressed the need for additional information, 78% expected assistance in the very process of hiring and 2.8% had taken advantage of renumeration reimbursement. Three groups of barriers have been identified and described: 1) conception of a mentally ill person as an employee, 2) belief about drastic limitations in functioning resulting from mental illness, 3) lack of knowledge and experience of working with mentally ill people. The most significant barrier is the belief in lack of ...
Im going to go out on a limb here: people commit suicide for a number of reasons, one of them being a way to escape the unbearable pain of depression. People kill for a number of reasons, one of them being because they are angry. There are many mentally ill people in the world and there are many angry people in the world. There are very few mass murderers. We need to stop using mental illness as the endpoint to answer the question Why? when a mass murder happens. Mental illness is not an explanation, and this may be a problem that is so rare that there will never be a reasonable response to this event other than to say that for any number of reasons, pilots should not be alone in the cockpit of a commercial passenger plane. ...

Just as kids are preparing to become independent adults is when serious mental illness (SMI) often strikes. Early detection is crucial to the prognosis.
The world keeps developing and our ways of thinking keep changing due to exposure to different developments around us. Although the way the society thinks of mental illness has changed, it has not changed as much as it ought to.. One of the major problems that mentally ill patients face, especially in collectivistic societies, is being termed as violent people. Many people still hold on to that misconception that every mentally ill patient is a violent person. The reverse is the case really; being mentally ill does not automatically make one violent. Even those that exhibit violent tendencies act that way not because they want to hurt others, but because it is a form of coping mechanism. Violent behaviours amongst mentally ill people is an externalized expression of symptoms and a way of dealing with conflict, fear, and goal-blockage.. People with mental disorders have a lot going for them, especially those in countries that think being mentally ill is something to be ashamed of. When patients ...

Despite all this, she didnt come across as being clinically depressed. But there was overwhelming evidence that her anorexia was controlling her. If it continued, she might very soon, within a matter of days, reach a point at which her body would not be able to recover from the damage that had been done. We concurred that she was unable or unwilling to consider that her behaviour was placing her at grave risk, and that she was powerless to modify her behaviour or recognise the risks. As she undoubtedly had a mental disorder within the meaning of the Mental Health Act, and it was clear that the only way she was going to receive necessary care and treatment was through admission to hospital, we completed an application for her to be detained under the MHA ...
71% of U.S. adults say they are confident that medical centers in their area can handle the needs of seriously ill people during the pandemic.
Several tensions emerged from the accounts of drug use in these chronically ill people. Drug use was central to their management of their multiple symptoms and disabilities, and self regulation to gain maximum symptom control was common.5 7 In common with participants in other studies,3 5-9 our respondents also showed an aversion to taking drugs, despite their acknowledgment that they depended on drugs to live as normal a life as possible. Respondents referred to trying not to take drugs, resourcefulness in stopping or minimising drug use, and sometimes a preference for other strategies (such as counselling) over medication. Drug use was discussed in moral terms to show how individuals remained competent though seriously challenged by their illnesses, were stoical in their response to illness, and were responsible in their roles as paid employees and family members. This raises the question why such chronically ill patients with multiple morbidity, who are much sicker and more restricted than ...

Igenex Interpretation is based on internal validation studies. by Igenex criteria, IgM Western Blot is considered positive if 2 or more of the doubled starred bands below are present. By CDC/NYS criteria, IgM WB is reported positive if 2 of the following bands are present: 23-25, 39, 41. The CDC/NYS refuses to allow the labs to report band 31 and 34 because they were used to make the vaccine, which was only on the market a short time (people got sick so it was removed). Obviously, I havent had the vaccine, so the reporting of these bands are imperative. The CDC/NYS decided that these were the most common bands, therefore designing a vaccine with them. The thing is that now they are not included in test results, by the request of ignorant groups. Since diagnosis by positive test results is so important to ill people, a literate MD and good test results (mine were good through Igenix, they include the bands.) are needed so we can get correct treatment.

In assessing the impact of mental illness on the ability to drive safely, the focus should be on assessing the severity and significance of likely functional effects, rather than the simple diagnosis of a mental illness. Information relevant to the assessment may be gained from case workers and others involved in the ongoing management of the person. The review period should be tailored to the likely prognosis or pattern of progression of the condition in an individual. Commercial vehicle licences warrant greater concern and a lower threshold for intervention.. Mild mental illness does not usually have a significant impact on functioning. Moderate levels of mental illness commonly affect functioning, but many people will be able to manage usual activities, often with some modification. Severe mental illness often impairs multiple domains of functioning, and it is this category that is most likely to impact on the functions and abilities required for safe driving. A persons medication ...
