This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, GENETIC, PSYCHOSOCIAL, NEUROTRANSMITTERS, GENDER, CULTURAL, STRUCTURAL BRAIN ABNORMALITIES. Read through each and choose information that seems relevant to you. There will be too much information to list it all – remember the paper is 300-500 words, do your best in consolidating the important bits . Make sure you reference each of the highlighted areas above. I have listed all POSSIBLE causes, you will not see all of them in every case study.

Here you will read about the various treatments offered to people with mental illness and write about each treatment in your own words. The treatment options are as follows: COGNITIVE, BEHAVIORAL, INTEGRATED MODELS, MEDICATIONS, BRAIN SURGERIES, PSYCHOLOGICAL, THERAPIES. Again, I have listed all POSSIBLE treatments.

Medications : Stimulant drugs seem to be the most prevalent treatment choice for treatment of ADHD. Antidepressants are also used for the treatment… 2. Behavioral : Goal-directed therapies are used to encourage prosocial behavior…
