This works toward the main goal of recovery: achieving the highest possible level of functioning so they can live a healthy and positive life.

MENTAL ILLNESS is a health problem that significantly affects how a person thinks, behaves and interacts with other people (Government of Western Australia, 2016). FACTS AND FIGURES (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2017) (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012) (McKenna and Harrison, 2012) (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012; Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012; McKenna and Harrison, 2012) WHAT RISKS FACTORS AND PROTECTIVE FACTORS INVOLVED IN MENTAL ILLNESS DETERMINANTS OF MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING According To World Health Organization 2012, “Mental health and well-being is influenced not only by individual attributes, but also by the social circumstances in which persons find themselves and the environment in which they live; these determinants interact with each other dynamically, and may threaten or protect an individual’s mental health state”. DETERMINANTS OF MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING RISK FACTORS Risks to mental health can still happen and affect people at all stages of their lifespan. Considering a ‘life-course perspective’ demonstrates how these risks in different stages of life can affect mental health well-being or put the person at risk of mental disorders even after so many years (WHO, 2012). RISK FACTORS 1. Individual Attributes and Behaviour • Low self-esteem • Cognitive or emotional immaturity • Difficulties in communicating • Medical Illness • Substance use (comorbidity) 2. Social Circumstances • Loneliness • Bereavement • Neglect • Family Conflict • Exposure to violence/abuse/ bullying – “Brodie’s Law”, Social media • Low income and poverty • Difficulties or failure at school • Work stress • Unemployment 3. Environmental Factors • Poor access to basic services • Injustice and discrimination • Social and gender inequalities • Exposure to war or disaster PROTECTIVE FACTORS Protective factors include characteristics relating to individual, family circumstances, peers, school and the broader community. PROTECTIVE FACTORS 1. Individual Attributes • Self-esteem, confidence (easy temperament) • Ability to solve problems and manage stress or adversity (good coping skills, able to control emotions) • Communication skills (resilience/positive attitude to help seeking) • Physical health, fitness 2. Social Circumstances • Social support of family & friends • Good parenting / family interaction • Physical security and safety • Economic security • Scholastic achievement • Satisfaction and success at work 3. Environmental Factors • Equality of access to basic services • Social justice, tolerance, integration • Social and gender equality • Physical security and safety COMMON MENTAL ILLNESS CMI DEPRESSION ANXIETY SCHIZOPHRENIA PERSONALITY DISORDERS BIPOLAR MOOD DISORDERS EATING DISORDERS NATIONAL CHRONIC DISEASE STRATEGY NCDS The National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions • Collaboration between: > the Commonwealth > all state and territory governments under the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council • Vision “all Australians live healthier lives through effective prevention and management of chronic conditions”. • New approach >often similar underlying principles for the prevention and management of many chronic conditions this framework >moves away from a disease-specific focus. >The timeframe of the Framework is eight years(2017–2025), with a review proposed every three years Principles  Equity  Collaboration and partnerships  Access  Evidence-based  Person-centered approaches  Sustainability  Accountability and transparency  Shared responsibility The primary objectives of the NCDS  To prevent and delay the onset of chronic disease for individual and population groups.  To reduce the progression and complication of chronic disease  To maximise the wellbeing and quality of life of individual living with chronic disease and their families and carers.  To reduce avoidable hospital admission and health care procedures.  To implement best practice in the prevention,detection and management of chronic disease.  To enhance the capacity of the health workforce to

Transcript: What is a mental illness? any disease of the mind; the psychological state of someone who has emotional or behavioral problems serious enough to require psychiatric intervention How do people form their attitudes towards mental illness? Everything helps to shape attitudes but social networks form these attitudes. Friends, family and the media are all behind our beliefs. The media play a very important part in the formation of our attitudes because they use propaganda to shape our views. Do the responses convey an understanding? Although majority of the samples did show a general understanding, it clearly isn't enough. A thorough understanding is needed for both mentally unwell and well individuals in the community. The younger samples showed a more extensive understanding, which shows that schools are educating the future generations about mental illness. Solutions to educate the community about Mental Illness A number of actions can be taken to educate the community about Mental Health. These include: Free lectures at the local schools for the older generations. More books about mental health in the local library. Making a mental health course compulsory in primary and secondary schooling Opening a youth centre where parents and children can go to learn more and seek help. Do you believe that an attitude can be changed? I honestly believe that knowledge can do anything. Your attitudes are based on what you know. If you have a poor understanding of mental illness then your attitude towards it will be poor. But it also comes down to the person, some people are just stuck in their own ways and don't want to learn about something that might scare them. Once you have a mental illness, you have it for life. www.blackdoginstitute.org.au www.reachout.com www.BITEBACK.org.au www.headspace.org.au www.ybblue.com.au Kids Helpline: 1800 55 1800 (free land line 24/7) Lifeline: 13 11 14 (free mobile call 24/7) Mental Illness By Stefanie Georgiadis 10F Disagreed 7 Agreed Psychotic Illness 6 Both of these people look happy, but one has a mental illness.

Transcript: Mental Health Awareness Introduction I have made this presentation to spread my idea and awareness for mental health and specifically in a group of people where their mental health gets overlooked: Athletes. I hope this can make you aware of the things people go though everyday which we overlook. Introduction Overview of the Issue OVERVIEW OF THE ISSUE Many people do not realize the lack of empathy that athletes receive in sports and the emotional and physical detriment that many athletes of all ages experience. The Cause THE CAUSE I think the cause of this is attributed to the idea that athletes are not to show weak traits and always be strong. This causes many to brush away their problems and bottle them up. This ultimately causes a detriment to the person having to hide there pain. I think the coaches have a part in this as they do not always look at their players as people but just as an athlete but, They are way more then a person who partakes in sports. Positive Aspect I think athletics can also cause habits of good mental health, You are bale to focus on only a single sport and not your daily life and you get to have fun. The Effect THE EFFECT I think there is a big effect that plays into this, Many athletes that deal with a lack of mental help and especially when they do not play sports, many athletes feel empty without any sports and due to them never getting any help, Many of their problems go untreated and many have to struggle with no help. The Positive Effect Even though quite a few athletes struggle with mental health, Many athletes find playing sports to clear their mind and the more you can get your mind off your troubles the better you'll feel in the short and long term mentally and physically. The Solution SOLUTION I think we can fight this problem with addressing it. Coaches should think about how their player is feeling and put their mental health on the same level of importance to their ability to play the game. The sterotype of all athletes are strong and nothing can hurt them have to be eliminated, They are human also and should be treated that way. Let's Fix It LET'S FIX IT! Make sure that you lifting teammates with your words not putting them down, Try to help and show sympathy to people. We all do not know what the other person truly goes though and feels in their day to day life. Spread the World SPREAD THE WORLD The best way to get support for anything is gaining awareness and I think we all know an athlete in our lives and I think you should always check up on them and check up on anyone for that reason alone. Make sure to spread what you have leraned. It benefits everyone. How you can help! HOW YOU CAN HELP Donate to a cause or fund Spread awareness on the situation Try to improve and help the situation anyway you can

Transcript: How many of you have experienced anxiety or stage fright before? Can you imagine feeling like that every time you had to intereact with others? True of False: Anxiety Disorders are highly treatable, yet only half of those afflicted recieve treatment. False: While anxiety disorders are highly treatable, only 1/3 of those afflicted recieve treatment. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (typically shorted to OCD) has to be the most normalized, misused mental disorder in the book. However, real OCD can be crippling without treatment, preventing sufferers from living normal lives. True or False: OCD is suffered by 1% of the adult population OCD often centers around themes, such as a fear of getting contaminated by germs. To ease your contamination fears, you may compulsively wash your hands until they're sore and chapped. Despite efforts to ignore or get rid of bothersome thoughts, the thoughts or urges keep coming back. This leads to more ritualistic behavior — and a vicious cycle that's characteristic of OCD. Physical Be very self-conscious in front of other people and feel embarrassed. https://socialanxietyinstitute.org/what-is-social-anxiety http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/social-phobia-social-anxiety-disorder/index.shtml http://socialanxietydisorder.about.com/od/overviewofsad/a/history.htm http://www.adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics Stay away from places where there are other people. Closing Have a hard time making friends and keeping friends. Social Anxiety Disorder can be a debilitating illness that interrupts daily life. However, with proper treatment it can be managed and the symptoms can be greatly reduced. Feel nauseous or sick to their stomach when with other people. Commentary on exceedingly shy people dates as early as Hippocrates in 400BC. However, it wasn't until the 1900s that psychiatrists began to use the term social phobia and classified it as its own distinct category or phobias. In 1980, social phobia was included as an official psychiatric diagnosis. It was described as a fear of performance situations, and did not include fears of less formal situations such as casual conversations. From 1995 on, large amounts of research has been conducted and focused on Social Anxiety Disorder as well as safe and effective medication to treat SAD. OCD can't be cured, but treatment may help. The most effective treatments for OCD are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and/or medication. More specifically the most effective treatment is a type of CBT called Exposure and Response Prevention which has the strongest evidence supporting its use for treating OCD and/or a class of medications called serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SRIs. Mental Health Social Anxiety Disorder Life With OCD Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that affects about 1-2% of the population. People with OCD experience both obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted and disturbing thoughts, images, or impulses that suddenly pop into the mind and cause a great deal of anxiety or distress. With OCD, you may or may not realize that your obsessions aren't reasonable, and you may try to ignore them or stop them. But that only increases your distress and anxiety. Ultimately, you feel driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease your stressful feelings. Do you know anyone with an Anxiery Disorder? Consider the fact that, anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders, affecting 18% of the US population, with SAD affecting 7% of the population. Fear of being contaminated by shaking hands or by touching objects others have touched Doubts that you've locked the door or turned off the stove Intense stress when objects aren't orderly or facing a certain way Images of hurting yourself or someone else Thoughts about shouting obscenities or acting inappropriately Avoidance of situations that can trigger obsessions, such as shaking hands Distress about unpleasant sexual images repeating in your mind Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) A disease recognizable as OCD appeared in the 17th Century, known as religious melancholy. Later, obsessional doubting was described as "scruples" in 1660. Modern concepts of OCD began in the 19th century. Obsessions were distinguished from delusions and compulsions were distinguished from "impulsions". As the twentieth century dawned, Pierre Janet and Sigmund Freud identified OCD as separate from other disorders. With the 21st century came a more therapeutically useful definition of OCD. Worry for days or weeks before an event where other people will be. “In any social situation, I felt fear. I would be anxious before I even left the house, and it would escalate as I got closer to a college class, a party, or whatever. I would feel sick in my stomach—it almost felt like I had the flu. My heart would pound, my palms would get sweaty, and I would get this feeling of being removed from myself and from everybody else.” Bibliography History Medication:

Transcript: Overview Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault Allows opportunity for employment. - The focus of the mad movement is to create more awareness and knowledge about people that have been labeled as psychologically ill and the struggles they have been faced with along their journey. This website does just this as it shares the stories of several individuals who have labeled themselves survivors of the psychiatric system. - In addition the website exposes the flaws of the treatments and practices taken place by professionals (over drugging and dangers of psychiatric drugs, in humane practices such as physical restraints and electro-shock therapy) - Builds awareness about the psychiatric stigma that follows survivors and how it prevents people from living their lives as they wish (finding a job, maintaining relationships, and simply fitting in rather than being an outsider) The Antipsychiatry Coalition is a not for profit volunteer group consisting of people who feel that they have been harmed by/are victims of psychiatry. The site also incorporates research and the opinions of those that have not been put through the system but are supporters of antipsychiatry. The overall goal of the site is to warn people of the harm routinely inflicted on those who receive psychiatric treatment and fight for victim’s civil rights and liberty. -bilingual text option allows for a larger audience to be reached. - simple layout and use of layman terms allows the average person to navigate and understand the content easily. -the mission statement and cause are easily accessible on the home page, coupled with the navigation links on the left hand sidebar, the layout allows the user to quickly determine the usefulness of the website to their specific needs. -the site lists valuable outside resources for the user which is beneficial for reducing bias. - the site, surprisingly lists advice and information for obtaining employment within the mental health field, citing phone numbers and ways to apply to the positions available. What is the site doing poorly? Overview: Founded in 2004, the coalition aims to create a unified voice for the mental health community. Beginning with 24 leaders, the members of the coalition are currently spread amongst 4 interconnected committees: Policy Committee, Communication Committee, Research Committee and Conference Planning Committee. As a collective whole, the coalition seeks to produce and distribute consumer-driven research, policy and position papers and aid in social change in regards to the mental health field. Mission: Current Issue: Researched compiled by people who have not experienced the"system". Example: For the User: How to improve: Simple interface and use of plain speech What is the site doing poorly: The organization hopes to achieve its specific anti-psychiatric objectives through strategic activism, meaning that it develops strategies and actions that are part of broader campaign, instead of dealing with direct service.

Retrieved October 29, 2015, from http://coalitionagainstpsychiatricassault.wordpress.com/ The Antipsychiatry Coalition. (n.d.). Retrieved October 26, 2015, from http://www.antipsychiatry.org/ After reviewing the website, one cannot come to the conclusion that the site is contributing to destigmatizing mental health. On the contrary, by focusing solely on those currently struggling and providing little aid or research for those who have survived and surpassed the system, it is likely setting the movement behind. There ought to be continuing support for those involved in the community. However, one should not negate the good intentions or usefulness of the website in building of a coalition that brings leaders together, sharing a wealth of knowledge and creating a bond within the mental health community. All of which are important "The Canadian Coalition of Alternative Mental Health Resources is a National forum that embraces best practices, alternative programs, learning opportunities, knowledge transfer and resource sharing." Comparison Easily accessible for English and French speaking people. Filled with first-hand narratives of those placed in psychiatric care, however reinforces this with academic articles The fact sheet on the site includes facts, myths and misconceptions. Which is a very effective tool in highlighting key points and aiding in guiding the reader’s research. It outlines the common misconceptions of the anti psychiatry movement, the psychiatric system. By: Paranika Balachandra, Lindsey Cochrane, Ashley Denby, Becky El-Geries, Filip Gajić, Jordana Merrick-Eker and Elizabeth Vixner All seek social change. - the website should include more recent research to ensure that the information being provided to members is accurate and up to date - allow for the inclusion of ex-patients and survivors
