How is mental health depicted in mainstream media(newspapers, news, TV documentaries, TV shows), social media (includes Netflix, Tik-Tok, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Google search) and movies,

 

The paper is to aid us whether mainstream media on mental illness has an impact on individual who suffering on mental illness and how the public perceive this from their point of view as more media tends to focus violence, dramatic and distorted images of mental illness that emphasize dangerousness, criminality and unpredictability.

Though we emphasised on three mental issues such as Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and Anxiety Disorder,  there are more types needs to address.  In addition to this, the reality of mental issues has taken a different perspective through media. It shows adverse reactions to the mentally ill, including fear, rejection, mockery and ridicule. Having said this also documented the how being diagnosed and what types of care will be assigning to.

           

 

How this depiction impacts the diagnosis of mental health disorders and the care provided for people with mental disorders

Media Depicted on Bipolar Disorder

·         I do not believe that mental illness is always accurately represented in the media. the media adds to the stigma associated with mental illness. I think that is due to “playing up” the disorders of characters in films and TV shows for entertainment purposes. For example, I remember seeing a film on the Lifetime Movie Network named ‘All she ever wanted” about a teenage girl with Bipolar disorder. They portrayed the girl as excessively violent, with fits of rage that led to attempts to harm others (mainly her mother).

 

 

·         The girl in the film would go from a happy mood immediately to extreme anger trying to harm others and throwing things, back to happy. This is clearly a misrepresentation of what it means to actually be bipolar. The misconception will add to the negative image that many people perceived them as dangerous and violent. Misrepresentation like this by the media can also cause people to feel fearful of certain disorders because of the exaggerated depictions given by media.

 

·         TV shows primarily because of rating they want to exploit her mental health issue. Thus, there will be increase viewer for this specific show which is wrong, needless to say many will think Mental Illness has no cure and the affected persons will be stigmatised by public till the awareness is made on this.

 

Reality and Diagnosis of this Bipolar Disorder using DSM5

 

 

Then in reality they are stigmatised and graded as ‘Siow’ if people come across such character. Media depicted TV show in such manner and absorbed in their mindset as negative stereotype. Before the affected party diagnosed, mental health practitioner must perform certain assessment using DSM 5, and have series of test for them to go through.  Psychiatrist have to assess them for the followings: -

 

Emotional changes:

·         Experiencing an elevated, expansive or irritable mood for at least one week

·         Rapid changes in mood between depression and mania, or a mixture of both

·         Moodiness

·         Irritability or anger

Cognitive changes:

·         Feeling excessively good about the self (inflated self esteem)

·         Exaggerated ideas about how important one is (grandiosity)

·         Difficulty concentrating, paying attention and remembering things

·         Easily distracted or impulsive

·         Having many ideas or thoughts at the one time (flight of ideas)

Behavioral changes:

·         More talkative or having pressured speech

·         Problems with work, social or family life

·         Increased goal-directed activity

·         Involvement in pleasurable or risky activities that have the potential for serious negative consequences (eg, excessive spending, increased sexual activity)

·         Increase in impulsivity

Physical changes:

·         Decreased need for sleep

·         Changes in energy levels and appetite

 

·         Thus, after psychiatrist have done numerous test and using DSM 5 as guide, we can rationalise the person on the mental health begin by describing the treatment and care.

 

·         Continuous monitoring of symptoms and functioning is pivotal for people suffering from chronic, recurrent conditions in bipolar disorder. This group have to play an important role in managing their illness.

Consequences and Care- Bipolar Disorder

Every person is different, but treatment of bipolar disorder could include:

·         Assertive case management

·         Appropriate medication (using mood stabilizers, antidepressants or antipsychotics as needed)

·         Psychological therapy

·         Family and group therapy (including family psychoeducation)

·         Vocational interventions

 

·         TV show has already illustrated she has not seen a psychiatrist/doctor on her issue. This allow us to think that they are ignorant and naïve on the condition she exhibiting. Probably with the visit to psychiatrist would be better for her and the situation will improve.

 

·         The four sections of these guidelines include diagnosis, comorbidity, acute treatment, and maintenance treatment. These guidelines are not intended to serve as an absolute standard of medical or psychological care but rather to serve as clinically useful guidelines for evaluation and treatment that can be used in the care of children and adolescents with bipolar disorder.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Depicted on Schizophrenia

 

·         Watching movie like ‘A Beautiful Mind’, is a compelling and powerful movie that explores the Nobel Laureate winner and professor John Nash in his rise, fall, and recovery dealing with schizophrenia. 

 

·         This movie is based on true story about a Mathematical genius (Nash) who has obsession for patterns and numbers. Nash uses various techniques and one of his technique, is the use of bright light when Nash sees a solution, as shown with lit numbers popping out when he is deciphering code.

 

·         This movie also portrays his journey and struggles with the debilitating mental disorder Schizophrenia. Nash displays many abnormal behaviours. One positive behavioural symptom of schizophrenia displayed are his hallucinations.

 

 

·         The audience can see John’s illness manifesting is in his increasing inability to communicate his feelings, which takes a toll on his personal relationships and the intimacy that he once enjoyed. However, we get to experience a more internal side of the illness, with depictions of hallucinations and delusions along with outward symptoms like awkward facial expressions and slurred, jumbled passages of speech.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reality and Diagnosis of this Schizophrenia using DSM5

 

 

·         The first signs Nash’s illness can be seen manifesting is in his increasing inability to communicate his feelings which takes a toll on his personal relationships and the intimacy that he once enjoyed.

 

·         There are other movies on Schizophrenia which depicted more violence and terror. It can be so traumatised for the movie goers. Some critics argue that films overdramatize these elements.

 

·         The following diagnostic criteria for Schizophrenia as outline by DSM5 :-

·         The individual experiences two or more of the following for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period. And at least one of these must be (1), (2), or (3):

1. Delusions

2. Hallucinations

3. Disorganized speech (incoherence or derailment)

4. Completely disorganized or catatonic behaviour

5. Negative symptoms, such as diminished emotional expression

 

 

Consequences and Care- Schizophrenia

 

·         Schizophrenia is a complex, heterogeneous disorder, with highly variable treatment outcomes, and relatively little is known about what is important to patients. The aim of the study was to understand treatment outcomes informal carers perceive to be important to people with schizophrenia.

·         Improving treatment outcomes and quality of life for people with long-term mental health conditions are key aims of health care policy. The recovery for patient like Nash draws attention to the importance of recognising different range of outcome in schizophrenia treatment,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

·         People with schizophrenia such as Nash value outcomes such as achieving life milestones since he is ambitious, improved physical activity, employment, a positive sense of self and psychosocial outcomes. Understanding the full range of treatment outcomes important to people with schizophrenia are aligned with patient and carer priorities.

 

·         Furthermore, carers have the potential to influence treatment decisions and experience, indirectly, the impact of outcomes. This study sought to explore the treatment outcomes that carers feel are important for people with schizophrenia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Depicted on Anxiety Disorder

·         An article was caught my eyes years ago, title named ‘Why are more American teenagers suffering from anxiety disorders.’ The story was about a boy named Jake who achieving academically. Jake had 3 placement advance class, has cross country to take and also attending his CCA. He has to many things to handle but then he is was the kind of teenager who handled things.

 

·         Jake begins to overthink whether he can keep up with his peers on studies, whether he can succeed in life. The relentless drive to avoid such a fate seemed to come from deep inside him. He considered it a strength. They sent him to a therapist when he was too scared to sleep in his own room. He refused to go to school and curled up in the fetal position on the floor. “I just can’t take it!” he screamed. “You just don’t understand!”.

 

 

 

Reality and Diagnosis of this Anxiety Disorder using DSM5

 

 

·         Anxiety disorders are a group of related conditions, each having unique symptoms. However, all anxiety disorders have one thing in common: persistent, excessive fear or worry in situations that are not threatening. People typically experience one or more of the following symptoms:

Emotional symptoms:

·         Feelings of apprehension or dread

·         Feeling tense or jumpy

·         Restlessness or irritability

·         Anticipating the worst and being watchful for signs of danger

 

Physical symptoms:

·         Pounding or racing heart and shortness of breath

·         Sweating, tremors and twitches

·         Headaches, fatigue and insomnia

·         Upset stomach, frequent urination or diarrhea

 

·         Using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) a mental health professional is able to identify the specific type of anxiety disorder causing symptoms as well as any other possible disorders that may be involved. Tackling all disorders through comprehensive treatment is the best recovery strategy.

 

Consequences and Care- Anxiety Disorder

 

·         After medication and therapy has failed in Jake’s life, Jake’s parent decided to enrol him in ‘Mountain Valley’ as part of residential treatment programme. At Mountain Valley, Jake learned mindfulness techniques, took part in art therapy and equine therapy and, most important, engaged in exposure therapy, a treatment that incrementally exposes people to what they fear.

 

·         The therapists had quickly figured out that Jake was afraid of failure above all else, so they devised a number of exercises to help him learn to tolerate distress and imperfection. He made so much progress and able to discharged him, but continue to help other teenagers facing the same problem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Conclusion on the 3 types of mental health

 

·         In the absence of actual experience with people with mental illness, individuals rely on the media for their perceptions of those who have mental illnesses. Unfortunately, the media consistently portrays persons with mental illness as violent, murderous, unpredictable and have themselves to blame for their condition, are gross exaggerations and misrepresentations of reality and completely untrue. This has resulted in the belief in the general population that persons with psychiatric disorders are uncontrollable and dangerous and should be feared and avoided.

·         The thoughts and worries we all experience are real and essential regardless of whether our position conforms to others' ideas of mental health. If we can accept our current state, then we can begin to move forward.  Before we can rectify them, we need a clear grasp of how these messages are diffused by the media. A minimal study investigates how the media endorse stereotypes, stigmatization, and trivialization of mental disorder.

·         Mental health services may be provided either on an inpatient or, more commonly, an outpatient basis. A wide range of treatments may be provided to patients, with a mainstay of treatment being centered on psychiatric drugs.

 

 

·         Various mental health professionals may be involved including psychiatristspsychiatric and mental health nurses and, less commonly, non-medical professionals such as clinical psychologistssocial workers, and various kinds of therapists or counselors. Usually headed by psychiatrists and therefore based on a medical model, multidisciplinary teams may be involved in assertive community treatment and early intervention, and may be coordinated via a case management system .

 

 

·         Caregivers play an important role in supporting the members of the family who are at a risk. The care takers are also affected by this as the caregivers not only provide the personal care but also the emotional support to the people suffering with mental disorder and thus the patient who suffers from mental illness totally gets dependent on the care taker to fulfil all the needs, and the demands of the patient can bring various high level of stress for the carer and can affect the overall quality of life, including relationships.

 

·         If you are going through a difficult time with the person you are caring for, talk to your friends and family about it. Often, just by talking things through, they become clearer and less overwhelming. If you are concerned about the person's privacy, talk to a healthcare professional instead. They will be able to advise you on useful strategies and further mental health support services. 

 

Discuss how this topic can be correlated/ applied to you as a practitioner in the future. Discuss what new insights you have gained that will influence your work in the future and what changes of trends do you envision in the future.

 

 

As myself as a practitioner, Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that negatively affects your thinking, emotions, relationships, and decision-making abilities. Because there is no cure, getting the right treatment as soon as possible is the best way to improve your chances of surviving the illness.

 

The treatment for schizophrenia will focus on symptom management. You may need to take medication for an extended period of time, possibly even for the rest of your life. 

 

As a practitioner can apply Psychotherapy to the patient, type of talk therapy, will almost certainly be an important part of the treatment plan to help you understand and manage your symptoms. The right treatments, combined with practical and emotional support from loved ones, will go a long way toward assisting you in navigating your life.

 

When it comes to medications, a Practitioner can prescribe antipsychotics. They're thought to control symptoms by affecting the brain neurotransmitter dopamine.


Explanation:

After learning about Schizophrenia. It comes to an end that it is characterized by severe disturbances of cognition and emotion, which often contribute to a progressive loss of self-care and social functioning in those who are affected.

 

 

A practitioner can help patients better understand and adjust to living with schizophrenia by educating them about the causes, symptoms, or problems they may be having. There is no known cure for schizophrenia, but the outlook for those suffering from it is improving. There are numerous approaches to treating schizophrenia, the best of which is a collaborative effort. Medication, psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, and social services, as well as employment and educational interventions, are examples of these. 

 

Key to this is recognizing that what we consider to be real for the clinician and the patient is likely to be different." This dispute is more likely to arise in the early stages of the disease when patients are more likely to display a lack of understanding of their own behavior or the condition itself.  Clinicians must remember that how they approach discrepancies, in reality, can have a long-term impact on a patient's willingness to engage, as intervention is often most effective in the early stages of an illness.
