For year’s professionals, researchers, philosophers and many others have examined mental health searching for answers of existing disabilities. First, there are many types of mental illnesses. The types include adjustment disorders, bipolar, sexual disorders, dementia and delirium, as well as many other disorders that affect people every day. Looking at adjustment disorders, which is a common diagnosis where the person has difficulties adapting to stress. Bipolar is a very common disorder, and often I believed the diagnosis are misconstrued.
Bipolar or manic-depression affects people by bringing forth symptoms such as, hyperactivity, excessive worrying, and mood swings and so on. After dealing with an individual for more than a year with Bipolar, I can tell you upfront that the individuals can drive you crazy if a solution for treatment is not ministered to immediately. The persons often suffer suicidal tendencies, which I have witnessed first hand that in most cases the patient is seeking attention.
Few actually threaten suicide and actually carry it out. Most people believe that Bipolar is a mental illness, however the truth is Bipolar is directly linked to Chemical Imbalances, which means it is more neurological than psychological. In other words, the brain has chemicals that were not nourished. Therefore, when the nervous system is affected so is the mind and this is why it is labeled under mental health. The fact is recent studies has directly linked Bipolar to ancestry or genetics. Studies have shown that most patients diagnosed with Bipolar often have a family history of mood swings in the family.
The problem then is treating the diagnosis affectively without over medicating or putting the patient on medications that influence psychotic breaks. I found that the root of the chemical disorders that promote mood swings is often linked to childhood development and trauma that was never dealt with. If the mind has trauma in the back and it is not brought to the front for learning, accepting, and handling, then the bipolar symptoms will often increase as a result. Yet, bipolar is not the only mental health issue we are facing today. Sexual disorders are another type of disorder that separates itself entirely from bipolar, adjustment disorders, and other types of diagnosis.
Sexual deviation is more often than not linked to pornography, abuse, (not always), and other types of negative behaviors. However, recent studies have proven that Serial Killers or else psychopath or sociopath behaviors are hereditary. Some studies have attempted to prove that the symptoms are a direct link to child abuse; however, I stand to correct them. This may be true in some cases, but not all cases. I won’t go directly into this subject, since I will be writing a book specifically discussing serial killers later, however I wanted to point this issue out since sexual disorders are in fact psychological.
There has been evidence that link impairments in the brain that are causing the interruptions. The mind is a tricky thing, and until humankind is able to understand the mind completely and start accepting some realities, we are going to continue dealing with mental health and mental illnesses with little results. Again, I will be addressing these issues in later copies, but for now, we need a briefing to see where mental health is heading.
Dementia and delirium are mind disorders in the sense the disability causes memory loss, confusion, and is very common in the older generation of people. The diagnosis can confuse professionals if the patient is younger, since other diagnosis has similar disadvantages. Diagnosis such as alcoholism and drug disorders often causes mental blackouts, as well as other symptoms.
Although this is listed under mental health, I stand to correct them when they call the impairment a disorder. Alcoholism and drugs is often linked to hereditary and is considered a disease. Alcohol and drugs automatically affect the mind to a degree, but it entirely depends on the status of the mind before drugs or alcohol became an issue. Often alcoholism and drug addictions are directly linked to mental illnesses. This means that there is an issue under the surface, and the patient often uses alcohol or drugs to cover the ailment.
