The Role of a Psychiatrist

What is a mental disability and how does it affect a person's everyday life? A mental illness is a condition that impacts a person's thinking, feeling or mood. It may effect his or her ability to relate to others and function on a daily basis. Each person will have different experiences, even people with the same diagnosis.

How did society view someone with disabilities in the 1930s? How has this changed in today's societies? People with mental disabilities were greatly misunderstood and mistreated in the 1930s. Most spent majority of their lives in hospitals, subject to testing and prodding believed to 'cure' them. These methods include, but are not limited to, Insulin-induced comas, Lobotomies, Malarial therapy, and Electroshock Therapy. In recent decades, there has been a movement to bring mentally ill people out of institutions (deinstitutionalization) and support them so that they can live in communities.

What is the American Disability Act and the IDEA? Explain each, including the time the law was passed and the current implications in society. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA is divided into five titles (or sections) that relate to different areas of public life. The IDEA or Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is a federal law that requires schools to serve the educational needs of eligible students with disabilities. Schools must evaluate students suspected of having disabilities, including learning disabilities.

How can mentally disabled individuals contribute to society? Mental patients contribute the ability to love and be loved. They provide examples of functioning lifestyles to those who are disabled. They also provide jobs to caretakers, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and medical supply companies.

How can we, as citizens, support these individuals? Mental health policies and laws can be an effective way of preventing human rights violations and discrimination and promoting the autonomy and liberty of people with mental disabilities. Everyone requires a social network to satisfy the human need to be cared for, accepted, and emotionally supported, particularly in times of stress. Research has shown that strong social support may significantly improve recovery from both physical and mental illnesses. Changes in society have diminished the traditional support once offered by neighbors and families. People with disabilities often just need support and understanding from citizens.
