Walking Naked down the Aisle on your Wedding Day!
My Module 3 Assignment seems to be exciting because of the few words to write!
The Op-Ed I intend to write features on mental disorders that the society has hidden mad women and men in Assylums and homes for fear of mitigation and reprieve from the public.
Mentally ill people rarely are accorded the respect they deserve,should you declare depression,mania to an employer or spouse certain measures could be taken on you.Personally while working with this kind of patients,I have witnessed the devastating separation and pain on families
Such is the grim situation globally that more cases of psychiatry disorders are emerging but cannot be all confined to mental hospitals.
This in mind the Mental Health Chapter of Pyschiatric Nurses in Kenya are looking into expanding health promotion to the communities and educate the public on early diagnosis and treatment and acceptance.This will happen in the month of April during the coming World Mental Health Day which the WHO recognises as an urgent need to be addressed as one of the neglected areas in Health.
I willl appreciate your comments on this
