It seemed that the existing studies rarely evaluated the impact differences among income level homeowners. In fact, many of the existing studies use homeownership in general representing overall socioeconomic status without further examining the impacts from individual factors such as household income, wealth, or education, which would be expected to employ possible significant independent effect on health (Herbert et al., 2008). Finally, ideally studies would include controls for housing quality and wealth to attempt to isolate whether an association between homeownership and positive psychological and physical health might result from improvements in these areas. However, few studies include controls for these factors (Herbert et al., 2008).

Further research may utilize a longitudinal design in studies of child-abuse to better track the progression of childhood experiences on later adult health. Additionally, the Ontario Health Survey from which data was gathered did not include questions on childhood neglect or emotional abuse, though such variables have previously been linked to poor adult health outcomes as well ( Min, Minnes, Kim, & Singer, 2013). Lastly, as the healthcare environment evolves with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, future analyses needs to consider the possible mediating effects of healthcare coverage and insurance on individuals health care utilization and health outcomes.
As a result, the re-occurring issue of participants with mental health illnesses and other related issues would not receive mental health services if they were severe enough for eligibility. Scheid and Brown (2010) describe that agencies acted as gatekeepers that would decide mental health services to participants with mental health illnesses in order to keep costs down, which many participants may have to seek assistance from third parties if they were not eligible. Consequently, participants with serious mental health illnesses that were not eligible for services, lack insurance and require long-term care (Scheid and Brown, 2010) Thus, participants with mental health illnesses are likely have experience impoverish condition to thrive in their community. As a result, participants with mental health illnesses are at risk for unemployment and will likely to be unable to pay for third party services for mental health services. Hence, participants with mental health illnesses that could not receive treatment w... ... middle of paper ... ...being discharged with a mental health illness in their community.
Abstract This paper will discuss the different effects managed care has on the quality of mental health care for its clients. On the positive, managed care has increased availability to a cliental that would otherwise not be able to afford mental health care. On the negative, there has been a reduction in quality in order for managed care corporations to keep costs low and still make money. Proper implementation of managed mental health care would likely result in high quality, low cost mental health care. Introduction Two decades ago hospitals were for the physically ill and asylums were for the mentally ill. With the stigma fading from mental illness and a movement toward deinstitutionalization, this paradigm of segregation of mental and physical health care does not hold true today.
Statement of intended research Question: By the study of primary sources and clinica writing, what can we learn about mental health in the Tudor era (1485-1603)? And how physicatric culture continued to develop further during the 17th century? The mental health of Tudor England is overlooked. The current historical research looks at the physical health of people, but often avoids going into too much detail or research on mental health during this period. Although the histiorgraphy of mental health as a whole has been often discussed by such historians like G. E. Berrios and Roy Porte, it is clear that there is a need for further study in this area.
Merely having ownership might not definitely bring less stress compared to the renters if the owners have higher mortgage than rent amount. The past study also suggested that rental reforming policies from increasing housing quality for renters could be also considered for better health conditions when government continuingly promoting homeownership as a catalyst to improve citizens’ health condition (Manturuk, 2013). In addition, subsidies or tax incentives could be also examined in the future study when considering adding financial incentive programs for homeowners as the landlords to maintain and improve their investment properties (Manturuk, 2013). After all, any rewarding or incentive housing program for both homeowners and renters could be believed to positively affect mental and physical health.
To fully explore the concept of identity being lost or changed I would have needed a before and after comparison of their true identities in order to measure the degree of change. However, this was beyond the scope of my study and longitudinal method may have been more appropriate. In further research I would have liked to have done a comparative study of different homes with different staffing levels to see whether there is a relationship between the staff/patient ratio and degree to which identity is lost. This would have a more quantitative element as I found that as well as the quality of time spent between staff and patient the quantity of time has a direct effect on the patients sense of control over their lives.
Stigmatisms and social acceptance affect the decisions of minorities more than European Americans (“Unite for Sight”). This means that the negative societal perceptions of mental health cause individuals with mental health disorders to not get treatment or therapy because they feel ashamed of their mental illness. Within health literacy, the stigmatisms and cultural issues associated with mental illness in ethnic minority communities negatively impacts people affected by mental
There are also many factors referred to as ‘social determinants of health’ that affect Americans ' health in homes, work environments, and communities. These social determinants serve as barriers standing in the way to better health. By surpassing these social determinants, and by implementing a healthy lifestyle, the well-being of the general public will only improve. Location is often overlooked when analyzing the public’s health, despite the fact that it plays a major role in a community’s well-being. Differences in mortality, morbidity, and life expectancy vary dramatically both within and between countries.
Severe mental illness covers several specific diagnoses that have different needs for treatment. The “one size fits all” approach cannot handle all the needs of this group. Throughout the research, adequate housing was one of the most important concerns that needed to be met for people with severe mental illness to increase the stability of their disease. Securing housing for this population is difficult due to the symptoms of mental illness and issues arising when people relapse. Using public and private services could help alleviate some of the issues seen in the programs and policies that are used today in dealing with severe mental illness.
