Transcript: Yara Omar SUBSTANCE ABUSE & MENTAL HEALTH lets take a deeper look lets take a deeper look definitions S W O T mental health Mental Health "a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being." substance abuse Substance Abuse "overindulgence in or dependence on an addictive substance, especially alcohol or drugs." Is it that serious? serious matter. Disorders, which in this case include both the mental health issue and the drug or alcohol addiction have their own unique symptoms that may get in the way of your ability to function at work or school, maintain a stable home life, handle life’s difficulties, and relate to others. FOCUS AREA 1 MENTAL HEALTH 1 THE PROBLEM THE PROBLEM Roughly more than 300 million people, so that would be around 4.4% of the world’s population that suffer from depression. It is estimated that mental health conditions will affect one in four people during sometime in their lives. We are taught in school or by our families about diseases and issues whether its regarding sexual health or something else, but we are not taught about something that can consume a whole human without the proper help. Disparities abound, both between countries and particular groups. It is scandalous that 35-50% of people with severe mental health disorders in the Global North receive no therapy; but that figure roughly doubles to 76-85% for people living in the South. There are many different mental disorders, with different presentations. They are generally characterized by a combination of abnormal thoughts, perceptions, emotions, behaviour and relationships with others. DEEPER LOOK INTO ONE FOCUS ON ONE Depression is the most common mental disorder and one of the main causes of individuals being unable to function worldwide. Depression is characterized by sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, tiredness, and poor concentration. People with depression may also have multiple physical complaints with no apparent physical cause. Depression can be long-lasting or recurrent, substantially impairing people’s ability to function at work or school and to cope with daily life. At its most severe, depression can lead to suicide. There are also effective treatments. Mild to moderate depression can be effectively treated with talking therapies, such as cognitive behaviour therapy or psychotherapy. Antidepressants can be an effective form of treatment for moderate to severe depression but are not the first line of treatment for cases of mild depression. They should not be used for treating depression in children and are not the first line of treatment in adolescents, among whom they should be used with caution. STIGMAS SURROUNDING MENTAL HEALTH STIGMAS The Stigma of Mental Illness “Stigma refers to a cluster of negative attitudes and beliefs that motivate the general public to fear, reject, avoid and discriminate against people with mental illnesses." EXAMPLES 1. People should work out their own mental health problems. 2. Females are more likely to have a mental illness than are males. 3. Drug use is the main cause of mental health issues. FOCUS AREA 2 SUBSTANCE ABUSE 2 THE PROBLEM THE PROBLEM Drug addiction is a chronically relapsing disorder that has been characterized by the compulsive use of addictive substances despite adverse consequences to the individual and society Many people use drugs as a diversion from their reality. Drug abuse does not necessarily correspond to how wealthy or poor one is. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse. Substance abuse affects millions of people worldwide each year. It is estimated that about 76.3 million people struggle with alcohol use disorders contributing to 1.8 million deaths per year. As is the case with some global issues, substance abuse is unfairly portrayed – the developing world, marginalized groups, and communities being the most vulnerable to this reality. The most generally mentioned drugs were marijuana, cocaine, alcohol, Amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS), opiates and volatile solvents. While in some cases people are brought up in homes where they are exposed to drugs and a negative type of lifestyle, that is not always the case of why people fall down the path of substance abuse. DRUG SUBTOPIC Prescription Drugs Almost everyone has gotten a prescription filled at least one time, and what people don't realize is some of those medications we get prescribed are potentially addictive and can be dangerous if taken inappropriately. Some prescriptions are abused in this day and age, rather than actually being used to help. In some cases, especially in the United States; legal drugs can kill more people than illegal drugs. The initiation of the use of these substances induces euphoria, reward and a state of well-being that can lead to physical and psychological dependencies. Withdrawal syndrome occurs when the individual attempts

The guide would entail all mental health disorders as well as symptoms, detailed definitions of the disorders, and emphasize those that are most prominent to the Morehouse College community. As cultural and societal norms support heavy use of substances there is no real way to elimate the problem of substance abuse, but there are ways of prevention Climate shift where underage drinking laws are suppported and enforced Minimizing Substance Abuse Many students go through their College experience ignorant in the realm of Mental Health, as a result students missclassify serious acts of behavior as just stress for a test or heartbreak when in reality these could be an anxiety dissorder or depression. Morehouse College should have an event each month tof the academic school year that highlights a mental disorde, thus raising awareness and dismissing stigma around mental health. During high times of stress ,such as mid-terms and finals, Morehouse College could send e-mail blasts of telltale signs to watch out for so students can truly have their brothers back. Events Meeting with respetive orginaztions and services at Morehouse College to begin with planning events, and creation of guide. Making sure we have a strong foundation in what everyone is supposed to be doing. Timeline - Week 1 Building awareness by spreading the word of forthcoming events and resources on Mental Health and substance Abuse, via Social Media, word of mouth, e-mail blasts, Crown Forum, Freshman Orientation and other school activties such as Hump Wednesday and Market Friday. Enforcing and supporting under age drinking laws. Week 2 Putting the plans into fruition by starting to have the events and release the guide to the public. implementing Community training so that student leaders, faculty and staff are now equipped with the righ knowledge to properly address the issue. Week 3 Monitoring Progess by surveying students before we started the intiative and routinely after it has started. Setting goals as they will help us stay clear at the task at hand.

Transcript: Free Mental Health Therapy In America/ AHA profits Jay. Perkins David Chimezie Antonio Garza Jonathan Rodriguez Mrs. Bush 12/9/19 Free Mental Health Therapy Medicaid Due to the increasing rate of suicide deaths and mentally unstable patients, mental health therapy and medicare should no longer be able to profit off of these unfortunate lives as most of them can't afford the help they solely need. Free Mental Health Therapy Medicaid - Federal government recieves enough money to distribute unecessary goods and items but not eough for neccessities such as free mental health treatment/therapy. -Less school shooting and murders will take place. -Boosts the economy by a minimum percentage of 2.5%. -Will build communities and disband poverty in a partial way. -Demonstrate a change in society while raising the classes. Argument Layout 1 Statistics show that less than 1/5 of mental health therapy organizations and businesses profit enough for America's federal tax dollars, whether through profit or non-profit inmounts. This shows that this is not needed as seen by the government. Profit vs Non-profit organizations 3 Although some families can afford paying for mental health therapy, a pot hole still interrputs the process of completely changing the amount of mentally impaired people in America. Problem with costs of Therapy 2 Benefits that are going to be displayed include an increase in economic groth, less school shootings, a tremendous decrease in suicide rates, and a deacrease in the promotion of drug use. Benefits 4 Background Beginning The American Hospital Association started back in 1898 and has covered mental health at prices over $1000 dollars for one patient monthly. American Hospital Association 1 Different types include: -Bipolar disorder -Anxiety -psychosis `Autism Spectrum -Depression -Panic Attack -Schizophrenia and more... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSPhc2NJA2Q Different types of Mental Illness 2 Early mental illness began in the 5th century B.C. There has been a search in fixing mental illness ever since it has first appeared in humans . Unfortunately, there is still no sure fix for it. The start of mental illness 4 The first mentally ill patient dates back to 1753 in Philadelphia with 5 other mentally ill people alongside the victim. First mentally Ill patient Problem Problem The AHA has been profiting off of mentally ill patients for centuries and the people who can't afford it. They have increased the price for mental health therapy by 14% over the last 5 years due to the high demand for treatment and help in services for mentally impaired. Profiting off of Illness 1 The sad truth is that the longer that mentally ill people wait for treatment, the higher the chance of murder and even suicide set upon by their actions. This broadcasts a lack of hope and desperateness rather than solution. From teens to adults, this happens daily in America. Victims become impatient 2 Over 56% of Americans can't afford health care and 13% of the ones who can't afford it come from the American Hospital Association. Little action results in no resolution while the system corrupts middle to lower class people in terms of money and hope. Numbers don't lie 3 The american government knows the case of mental health patients who can't afford therapy presented by these companies and decide to raise the price for it rather than decreasing the price at the least. This just goes to show how incompetent they are in terms of helping citizens who are already struggling financially. NO changes being made 4 Solution Solution The most secure way for funding Free Mental Health Therapy is to take a part in tax dollars over the summer. Tax season can endorse ways for fund raising in America for needed organizations and ideas that would not be possible to implement without tax dollars. Secure way for funding Free Mental Health Therapy There is a current estimate of 328, 661, 658 people in America. 1 % of people in America are upper class, and 50 % are middle class. If we were to take a dollar fifty from every American in between those classes, then we would raise $9,859,849.74. Raising over 9 million dollars for free mental health therapy would be more than enough . 1.50$ from middle to upper classes in America Although schools have classes for special needs students, we could still implement more to help them feel comfortable while having more freedom and room to grow as people rather then just sectioned from everyone else such as the other teachers and students. Implement in schools Distributing money well throughout districts hospitals and mental health therapy establishments can prevent any financial concerns regarding the families and treatments that will need to be made by them and the workers. Distribute to hospitals and Therapy establishments Conclusion Conclusion While regarding the costs of Mental Health Therapy and issues surrounding the topic, raising money through taxes by $1.50 by every middle to upper class American

Transcript: Social Causes: Any traumatic experience, separation, lack of support, or bullying could be the social cause of MDD. If a bad experience has happened to the individual, they could carry that with them creating a stresser. The most common trigger of MDD is loss. This could be a loss of a loved one, a financial loss, etc. Psychological Causes: Neuroticism is a well-known risk factor for the beginning of Depression. By having such a negative out look on life, the individual is more likely to develop depressive episodes. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is probably the first recommendation for depression. The individual dealing with the disorder talks to a mental health care professional about past experiences that could be causing their depression. Another option of psychotherapy is group therapy. Group therapy connects other people dealing with this disorder in a calm setting to talk about their issues. Group therapy also helps those who need support or feel alone. Symptoms Continued Major Depressive Disorder: Five characteristic symptoms of depression lasting 2 weeks or longer. (DSM-5) Major Depressive Disorder is categorized under Depressive Disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5e. I chose this disorder because I have suffered from depression myself and there are so many people who struggle with this disorder and turn to suicide because they can not control it. I wanted to further educate myself on the background of Major Depressive Disorder and to help those dealing with it. By Cassie Spangler Psychology 150 sec. 202 I have neither given nor received help on this project. I am in compliance with the Cleveland Community College Academic Honesty Policy. The work is my own and proper documentation was completed, if appropriate. In diverse cultures most of the findings are similar to the U.S., such as the female to male diagnosis ratio, developing this disorder at an earlier age, and the likelihood of substance abuse. As these statistics were recorded, you must take in consideration the majority of cases of depression go unrecognized in certain cultures. Biological Causes: Close family members of individuals with Major Depressive Disorder are at risk for developing this disorder at about 2 to 4 times more than others without MDD in their family. If you develop this disorder from a relative you are more likely to develop this disorder at an early age and also have reoccurring episodes. Nature is definitely a link in the causes of this Depressive Disorder. Your brain normally evaluates a situation and determines if it is threatening or not. Your brain then decides what you should do about it. Sometimes the brain's chemical levels stay at the same level of that stressful situation for a longer time than normal. By your brain staying in that state, Depression is formed. There is research that shows stress and resulting depression can cause structural changes to the brain. It has shown in brain imaging studies that the brain's size and functioning changes in areas such as; mood, memory, and decision making. Symptoms Statistics Continued Statistics What I found most interesting in my research was how much genetics can take a toll on developing this disorder. After learning more about MDD I advise others dealing with it to seek medical attention instead of dealing with it on your own. You are not in control of your mind and your actions. I found a really great organization on the internet that helps teens with abusive support, at risk youth, and depression support. A Human Project sends ambassadors to schools, communities, and churches to speak to children and teenagers dealing with these problems. The political, judicial, and government organization issues related to Major Depressive Disorder I found was some government organizations from different countries not funding studies for this disorder and providing the help these individuals need. *Statistics from 2013 Identify Biomedical: Biomedical treatment for Major Depressive disorder includes drug therapy, psychosurgery, and electroconvulsive therapy in severe cases. Drug therapy, or psychopharmacotherapy uses medication to help with treatment. The three main types of drug therapy for psychological disorders is antianxiety, antidepressants, and antipsychotics. Psychosurgery is surgery of the brain to treat or alleviate mental illness. The type of surgery that would be used for depression is Subcaudate Tractotomy. In this procedure the fibers connecting the orbitofrontal cortex to the hypothalamus is severed. Electroconclusive therapy is mostly the last resort if other treatments do not work. This type of treatment shocks the brain and creates new connections in other areas of the brain. The success rate of this therapy is around 80% of patients but should only be used if other treatment are ineffective. Usually a combination of psychotherapy and drug therapy is used to fully take on the disorder. Emotional symptoms: Feeling depressed
