Community Mental Health

Community Mental Health I. What is mental illness? Criticisms of the Construct. Thomas Szasz (1961) Does mental illness exist or can these behaviors be better conceptualized as

Degree of functionality. Community Mental Health II. What were the effects of the deinstitutionalization movement? What caused this movement?

The wide-spread availability of psychiatric medications. The philosophy of community psychiatry. The general time period in which deinstutitionalization occurred. Budget cuts? What do critics believe was the negative fallout?

Lack of available housing. Transinstutionalization of care. Where do the largest portion of SMI live? Alcohol and drug abuse. Epidemiological research indicates that persons with mental illness are more likely than the general population to experience with drug and alcohol.

Sexual abuse. Some research suggests that people with mental illness may be at more risk for sexual victimization (e.g., Mowbray et al., 1997). Do environmental factors affect the success of reintegration? Community attitudes towards persons with mental illness.

Education is positively related to increased tolerance. Size of the community also appears to be a factor. Cities over 100,000 appear to be the least equip to provide services to the mentally ill. Cities between 10 and 100K are the most. Small towns falling somewhere in the middle.
