Mental Health: Depression
Clinical depression is a serious illness which leads to persistent low mood, loss of energy and motivation, and a reduced ability to feel pleasure. It interferes with day-to-day life by producing negative thoughts and a variety of physical symptoms. Indeed physical symptoms are so important that it is more usual for patients with depression to go to their doctor with a bodily complaint than with a complaint about their mood, so it is vital that doctors understand that depression may be a “hidd
Mental Health: Schizophrenia
The term, schizophrenia, covers a broad group of disorders which affect the beliefs people have about the world around them. This results in disruption to their day-to-day lives and usually causes distress to them and also their families and friends. They may hear voices speaking when no-one is talking or believe that others are against them when this doesn’t seem to be true: 'positive symptoms' refer to such hallucinations and delusions, 'negative symptoms' include amotivation and social with
Mental Health: Anxiety
It is normal for people to feel anxious from time to time in everyday life. It is also quite common for people with other mental illnesses to experience anxiety as an additional symptom. This is why it is important to have a clear understanding of what the Anxiety Disorders are, and how they differ from normal experience as well as from other disorders. This module will focus on the 3 most prevalent Anxiety Disorders: Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Phobic Disorders and Panic Disorder.
Mental Health: Dementia
Dementia is one of the biggest health problems facing developed and developing countries. In the UK 700,000 people have dementia, with one new case every 3 minutes, a figure that is forecast to double within a generation. Currently, 42% of the UK population, know a close friend or family member with the condition and its financial costs alone, of over £17billion per year, are more than cancer; heart disease and stroke combined.
Mental Health: Delirium
Delirium is defined as a transient, usually reversible, cause of cerebral dysfunction. The clinical hallmarks are decreased attention span and a waxing and waning type of confusion. Delirium is one of the most frequently overlooked diagnoses in general hospital settings. It is almost always due to physical pathology, but often presents with psychiatric symptoms. Every doctor, whatever their specialty, should know how to recognise and manage this common syndrome.
Mental Health: Alcohol and addiction
Many people use alcohol and illicit drugs. For some it becomes such a serious problem such that they may seek help for it directly. However, the majority of people who harmfully use alcohol and illicit drugs will present to their doctor with other health problems. These may be caused by their substance use or unrelated to them. In either case it is vital to understand the effect that alcohol and other substances will have on the management of the underlying condition. This is why it is important
Mental Health: Violence and safety
The vast majority of people with mental illness are not violent. However, violent incidents do occur for a variety of reasons in psychiatric hospitals as well as in general hospitals. It is therefore important for all doctors to be familiar with the reasons why their patients may become violent. We need to know how to prevent incidents from occurring - and when prevention fails, we need to know how to manage violent patients safely and effectively.
Mental Health: Bipolar
People with Bipolar Disorder (also known as Manic Depression) experience episodes of high and low mood which disrupt their day-to-day life. The pattern of illness is different in each case; people may experience far more episodes of one mood extreme than the other, while the frequency of episodes is also very variable. Even though this is an episodic illness in which people get better between episodes, research is starting to show that sufferers continue to have difficulties when in remission. T
