In my case study I have found that mental illness describes a broad range of mental and emotional conditions. The type, intensity, and duration of symptoms vary from person to person. In some cases mental illness can be as clearly defined as physical illness such as diabetes. The symptoms of mental illness often are effectively controlled through medication and/or psychotherapy, and may even go into remission. In some cases, the illness continues to cause periodic episodes that require treatment. Mental illness in most cases cannot be cured, but consequently, some people with mental illness will need no support, others may only need occasional support, and still others may require more substantial, ongoing support to maintain their productivity. A person can experience a mental illness over many years. In mental illness, the most common forms are anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and schizophrenia disorders. The concept of deinstitutionalization has been effective in providing needed services to mentally ill. With the help of National Institutes of Mental Health, new psychiatric medications were developed and introduced to the different facilities.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
