Psychiatry is caught in a number of philosophical errors. One is reductionism, as psychiatry tends to look for the underlying biological causes of mental disorders. The other is dualism, as it sees mental disorders as either being caused by our brain or being caused by our mind. Both of these errors are the result of seeing the world as made up of a hierarchy of things. Instead, if psychiatry viewed the world as fundamentally composed of processes, dynamically interacting with each other, a much more nuanced understanding of mental disorders would become available, argues Elly Vintiadis.

Following in the tradition of Democritus and the atomists, mainstream metaphysics in the West saw the world as made up of things which are in turn made up of smaller things – and so on to the end. This, however, is only one possible way of seeing the world. Another is that of Heraclitus who said that everything flows. According to this view, the world is constantly in motion and made up of a hierarchy of intertwined processes that exist on different time scales. For example, a human organism whose properties change throughout its development is a process, but more extensive than the underlying process of cell renewal that our body constantly undergoes.

Obviously there is change and there are processes even in non-process metaphysics, for example, we talk about events, like my ball throwing. In such a context, it is generally understood that the changes which occur during the processes are changes undergone by a durable subject (for example, a person whose properties change). In contrast, in process metaphysics, dynamically interacting processes are the underlying nature of all that we experience as stable. The key to this debate is to oppose a static vision to a dynamic vision of the ultimate constituents of reality. This distinction may help us see how many of the errors of modern psychiatry rest on traditional metaphysics, and thus motivate a shift to process metaphysics for a better understanding of mental disorders.

There is no underlying biological cause for major depression – it can result from a number of possible causal pathways.

___

If we think of the world as a hierarchy of different levels of organization, as is often the case when we think in terms of things, we often think in terms of “lower” levels determining the properties of the “lower” levels. superiors”. This can easily lead to the idea that the lower levels are the (only) truly causal ones. In psychiatry, this reductionist image is reflected in the biomedical model which aims to discover the biological causes of patients’ symptoms, focusing on the brain as the locus of mental disorders. This can lead, in turn, to the essentialism of mental disorders. In other words, it makes us wonder what a mental disorder is really that is, what is its biological “essence”, or what all cases of a particular disorder have in common – the causative agent of their symptoms.

However, we have failed to reduce mental disorders to disorders of the brain, nor to find their “essence”. Most mental disorders are multicausal (caused by many factors) and causally heterogeneous (the same illness can be caused by different combinations of factors) and evidence shows that the onset and post-onset course of many disorders are caused by environmental, social and cultural factors. . For example, there is no underlying biological cause for major depression – it can result from a number of possible causal pathways.

What is true of mental disorders is that they take time to develop and they affect people, not just brains, who have genetic predispositions, but who also have a personal history and construct a narrative of their experiences – that is, they have explanatory patterns through which they use to make sense of their condition and which, in turn, may play an active role in perpetuating mental disorders. So to understand mental disorders, we need to consider these factors and understand patients’ life experiences, values, goals and narratives, and their brains.

The wrong philosophy of medicine threatens your health
By DianeO’Leary

Beyond the problematic search for essences and ultimate levels of reduction, another problem in psychiatry that often goes unnoticed is dualism: we still tend to view psychiatric illnesses as either cerebral or mental. This dualism is also found in our attributions of responsibility and blame; the more a disorder is perceived to have psychological or environmental/social causes, the more the patient is seen as blameworthy and responsible for it. While if the disorder is considered biological, it is the opposite: it is generally considered beyond the control of the person. In addition to this, dualistic thinking underpins the conventional dichotomies of nature versus nurture and biology versus nurture that attempt to establish which of the two in each dichotomy is more fundamental, often giving secondary importance to anything related to the broader social context.

These three problems of essentialism, reductionism and dualism, do not necessarily go hand in hand with a non-processual metaphysics, but they are only possible within such frameworks. By embracing process metaphysics, we can explain why questions such as whether a disorder has biological or social causes or what a disorder is it’s true, are ill-posed while providing a context in which such questions do not arise. Because mental disorders are complex phenomena that manifest in different ways, operate on different time scales, and emerge through various causal pathways, they are best understood as processes, consisting of a set of processes that interact in nonlinear ways. .

At the same time, the metaphysics of the processes can base the criticism of the biomedical and biopsychosocial model of the mental disorders, while allowing us to improve this last. If the world is, indeed, fundamentally made up of processes rather than things, any reductionist model like the biomedical model, and any model that does not approach mental disorders in a multidimensional way, cannot do justice to the complexity of a such world. On the other hand, although the biopsychosocial model integrates biological, psychological and environmental factors when trying to understand mental disorders, in practice it remains static and fragmented, arguably, by virtue of the metaphysical framework in which it is inscribed. Conventional dichotomies between nature and nurture, and biology and nurture are embedded in this model, despite the fact that it attempts to highlight the importance of their interaction.

___

The complexity of mental disorders makes the very question of whether their causes are physical, mental or social overly simplistic.
___

On the other hand, because the processes do not have rigid boundaries, but interrelate in a multidirectional way and support each other in a dynamic way, we cannot correctly speak of distinct ontological levels, and even less of a hierarchy, of so that the dichotomies that arise in the metaphysics of things are unavailable in a process framework. In such a framework, a person is the product of a continuous process of development, so rather than thinking in terms of different factors belonging to different domains, for example the biological and the social acting on each other, in a process framework, we can see the person as a unified process embedded in an environment. Such a vision can add a more dynamic aspect to the biopsychosocial model, thus helping to improve it.

A mental disorder is never purely biological or purely psychological or purely psychosocial; the complexity of mental disorders makes the very question of whether their causes are physical, mental or social overly simplistic. This means that we cannot choose one process or level as ontologically more fundamental than another and it also means that we cannot exclude a component a priori when trying to understand a disorder. Addiction, for example, cannot be understood without taking into account the person’s character, background, past experiences and social environment, as well as the way the patient himself experiences his addiction. The physiological changes in the brain during addiction are important, but they alone will not explain why a person became addicted or remained addicted. For this, we also need to have an idea of ​​what motivated drug use and what helped to maintain it.

Beyond the Mental Health Paradigm
By LucyJohnstone

A view that naturally follows from process metaphysics is that. To understand mental disorders, we need to see them as dynamic and physically, socially and historically situated. That is to say, we have to tackle the specific embodied the person who is in a specific socio-cultural reality related to it in a specific way; not as subject to opposing forces, but as a whole in which all these aspects work together and are shaped over time. Disorders are essentially dynamic and there is no way to pin down a person’s disordered state into one or more stable characteristics. But this is not an accidental characteristic of them – because of the way they arise from events in people’s lives and ongoing interactions, they cannot be understood simply in terms of a succession of states.

Thus, one of the advantages of adopting a processual metaphysics is that it makes it possible to better apprehend the complexity of mental disorders and to draw up a dynamic picture of them, which is not always easy to do in a metaphysical framework. process. Moreover, thinking about mental disorders in a different conceptual framework requires addressing the many levels that interact to cause them, thus a metaphysics of processes requires a pluralistic explanatory approach but also opens the way to better treatment and prevention options.

In terms of explanation, because mental disorders are multilevel phenomena, we need to approach the whole process at different levels of abstraction, different time scales with different methodological tools. This in turn involves a diverse allocation of funds for research – including research into how non-medical services can improve mental health outcomes.. In terms of treatment, process metaphysics leads naturally away from a one-size-fits-all approach and towards pluralistic, flexible, person-centered therapy. Such an approach to therapy may not be a unique feature of process metaphysics, but it is a direct implication of a process-based ontology and, in this sense, it can help to anchor and explain existing points of view.

One in ten children suffers from a mental disorder, according to a report by the World Health Organization.

To avert this crisis, promoting and protecting youth mental health requires creating environments where children: are safe, have a sense of belonging, and can access quality services and support.

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has attributed the impending crisis to the Covid pandemic which has doubled the number of young people suffering from severe emotional symptoms.

In addition, Tedros claims that prolonged violent conflict and climate change also contribute to stress-inducing mental disorders.

According to the DG of the WHO, a majority of those who suffer do not have or cannot access mental health support and this huge gap in access to quality and age-appropriate services is a failure of our societies. It is also a violation of children’s human rights.

“As guaranteed by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, promoting and protecting the mental health of young people requires that we as societies come together to create environments where children are safe and have a sense of of belonging and where they can access quality mental services and support,” said the DG.

In his address to the 77th United Nations General Assembly, Tedros further stated that schools have an important role to play on both fronts; “This is where children hopefully spend most of their day, including those exposed to vulnerabilities and risks.”

“Even in the context of humanitarian emergencies, learning environments are important opportunities to provide safe and nurturing spaces and psychosocial support,” he noted.

Unfortunately, the WHO DG also notes that sometimes schools are not always safe spaces and can be sources of emotional distress, discrimination and sometimes even violence.

“Much work needs to be done to improve mental health services in schools which may be under-resourced and use a partial approach not always informed by evidence,” he added.

To address the situation, WHO and UNICEF have produced a toolkit to help adolescents strive which includes guidance on integrating mental health promotion and protection into schools , supported by case studies.

“We have also launched a joint program on mental health and psychosocial well-being and child and adolescent development with a focus on country impact and multi-sectoral action.”

The health and well-being of children around the world depend on safe and nurturing educational environments and high-quality, evidence-based mental services for those in need.

To combat this vice, Tedros notes that even the most challenging and under-resourced environments require sustained financial commitments and coordination between the education and health sectors and, where necessary, support from multilateral organizations. .

“Teachers, administrators and education leaders and young people themselves must all be engaged to develop new skills to implement critical changes in systems and maintain accountability,” he said. he concluded.

Dimapur | September 17

People living with mental health issues are rarely heard in the public domain. Their sharing of experiences, in many ways, is helping to move conversations around mental health forward in a positive way.

Against this backdrop, in the latest in this three-part series, three patients identified by Prodigals’ Home field workers through their Community Mental Health Program (CMHP) shed light on their struggles and progress. of their treatment.

The Morung Express, with the help of Toshiwapang, a field worker associated with Prodigals’ Home, spoke with patients to better understand how mental health issues can be diagnosed and treated.

Among the patients was a 14-year-old boy who had been diagnosed with severe seizure disorder and intellectual disability. (Name hidden to protect the identity of the minor)

“In 2010, when he was only 7-8 months old, he fell off a bicycle parked near our house and hit his head,” his mother told this newspaper.

Since then, he has been unable to communicate properly due to his condition and this eventually led him to quit school in 2016. “We want him to get a good education one day and allow him to pursue everything he he wants to do in life,” said his mother.

According to her mother, the family first traveled to Dibrugarh for treatment and surgery and also visited North East Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS), Shillong for a treatment. However, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, they had to abandon treatment.

It was in September 2021 that he was identified by Prodigal’s Home and has since been on medication for his condition. “He feels better these days and his compulsive seizures have also diminished,” his mother said.

Another patient, Subash Dey, 30, barely leaves his home due to his condition. Physically, he is frail and skinny and can barely speak. His mother, seated next to him, said he barely eats as he suffers from depression in addition to having a seizure disorder since 2011.

Her father died four years ago from a fatal stroke while her mother works as a domestic helper and barely earns enough to feed her family.

According to Toshiwapang, Dey was identified by members of Prodigals’ Home for the CMHP on October 30, 2021, “We tend to check on him from time to time to check whether he is taking his medication or not,” he said. declared.

The field agent also revealed that Dey had tried to end his life on two occasions and had a tendency to ‘self-harm’. So far his situation has not deteriorated, but neither is it improving significantly, he said, adding empathically: “We can only imagine what it must be like. for him to suffer so much.”

For Hihyulo Seb, 25, who lives with a mental health disorder known as psychosis, his condition prevents him from connecting his thoughts and emotions to external reality.

According to his siblings with whom he shares a rented house in Dimapur, Seb used to cause immense challenges to the family due to his unpredictable mood swings and bad temper. “He argued a lot with the boys in our colony,” they said.

After being contacted by Toshiwapang and integrated into the CMHP, his sisters admitted that there had been a considerable improvement in Seb’s health and condition.

As such, he is currently able to make a decent living by working as a peon in an office near his residence. Seb shared that he studied up to class 8.

“Since his case was not as severe as other patients, fortunately he improved significantly,” Toshiwapang said.

This is the last in a three part series

The fact is that these people, men and women obsessed with their physical appearance, have a mental health disorder. And it heals. Mental illnesses are not limited to clinical depression, postpartum depression, anxiety disorders, and bipolar, psychopathic, and sociopathic disorders. (If you want to learn more and understand the different types and symptoms, please google them. You’ll thank me later!)

But seriously, knowledge is power.

In recent times, I have watched with disdain at the rate at which young, middle and even old women in Nigeria are “under the knife” for invasive and often very dangerous cosmetic surgeries.

I’m very disappointed, especially because what’s happening now will ultimately give the next generation the euphoric feeling that they can alter their body parts or how they look and feel under the guise of making themselves “happy.”

Happiness is very relative, subjective and personal.

Cosmetic surgeries and body modifications can give an instant lift, but after a little while you will be looking for the next fix. This is where the problem lies.

For these people, happiness is neither free nor subjective. Happiness is expensive and objective (they deliberately objectified their bodies and in the end will never be satisfied with the results because they will keep looking for other “fixes”!)

Obsessed with your appearance, the appearance of your face, lines, crow’s feet lines, laugh lines, small or droopy eyes, small chin, large or small nose, long or small eyes, flat hips, flat chest, flat ikebe like oyinbo, falling ikebe, this and that.

Body dysmorphia.

According to Google, “Body dysmorphic disorder, or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition in which you spend a lot of time worrying about your appearance. You may have dysmorphic disorder if you worry a lot about how you look. a specific part of your body and that it affects your daily life.

So much so that you start spending unreasonable amounts of time, money, and resources trying to “fix” those flaws. Or do everything possible to hide these “flaws”. Which are not often noticeable to others, by the way.

Unfortunately, the market for body modifications, invasive and non-invasive processes and procedures, is huge. Very huge due to the rise in social media addiction, selfies and the unrealistic ambition to look perfect. Even when nobody and nobody can ever be perfect. Not even KK, the queen of body modifications.

So please spare a thought for people who inject silicone, crush their body organs (especially inconveniencing their lungs) cut their bellies to reduce fat (instead of exercising ) and usually irritatingly try to tamper with their manufacturer’s batches. gave them.

I feel especially sorry for them, because everything, every action has consequences later. Some of these procedures will come to bite them later, one way or another. They are very unhealthy, and some are later harmful to general well-being. And also, as soon as you do one procedure, you start thinking about doing another immediately.

I feel sad for them because the cosmetic procedure market is largely unregulated in most countries, even in developed countries like the UK, USA and other European countries. There are “backdoor cosmetologists” and surgeons to enlarge buttocks and all that.

Lives are lost that you don’t even read or see in the news (unless they’re a celebrity somewhere). These babies who “run” and “connect” every day, some have been marked for life, or even lost their lives.

I think we, as parents, are continually required and tasked to teach our children, every day and every time, the importance of having confidence in themselves and being proud of who they are and what they are. they are.

Self-esteem, self-respect and contentment with who and what they are and will ever be.

Specifically, as parents, we should stop sexualize our children. Because that’s how “hook-up and runs” girls are built.

Let us strive to nurture our daughters and live lives that establish good identities in their lives from which they will never deviate. Whether they’re at home with you, at college, on a sleepover with friends, or married; so be it, we can testify to their integrity and daily conduct in life. Wherever they are or with whom they are. They will be able to resist peer pressure and be good representatives of their parents, as my Yoruba people will say. “Ilé la ti ń kó ẹ̀ṣọ́ r’òde. ”

So be it, for us and for them, “charity begins at home” and results in piety and good behavior outside. May their life be what we can be proud of and boast about, simply by doing good with them.

WEDNESDAY, August 31, 2022 (HealthDay News) — Hot, humid weather is associated with an increased risk of mental health (MD)-related emergency room visits, according to research published in the September issue of International environment.

Xinlei Deng, Ph.D., of the State University of New York at Rensselaer, and colleagues conducted a case crossover study to examine whether multiple weather factors could trigger medical-related emergency room visits using data from May to October 2017 to 2018. Solar radiation (SR), relative humidity (RH), temperature, heat index (HI) and precipitation were obtained from a monitoring system in real time.

The researchers found that SR and RH had the highest risk of DM-related ED visits with a lag of zero to nine days for each increase in the interquartile range (excess risk, 4.9 and 4.0% , respectively). A short-term risk was observed for temperature (highest excess risk with a lag of zero to two days, 3.7%). An increased risk was observed over a two-week period for HI (excess risk, 3.7–4.5%), while an inverse association was observed for hours of rain with DM (excess risk , -0.5%). In September and October, stronger associations were observed for SR, RH, temperature and HI. The greatest increase in MD was observed for the combination of high RS, RH and temperature (excessive risk, 7.49%). Investigators observed a stronger weather-MD association for psychoactive substance use, mood disorders, behavioral disorders in adults, men, Hispanics, African Americans, older adults 46 to 65 years old and Medicare patients.

“For people with mental disorders, changes in several weather factors can cause symptoms that pose serious health risks,” Deng said in a statement.

After being found not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder on 14 counts stemming from a violent attack earlier this year on the village office of Keremeos, the fate of Cameron Urquhart is now in the hands of the commission of British Columbia review.

Following a hearing Friday in Penticton Provincial Court, Judge Greg Koturbash accepted a joint Crown and defense recommendation that Urquhart should be declared NCRMD.

The conclusion was based on the contents of a physical condition report prepared by physicians at Coquitlam Forensic Psychiatric Hospital.

The report itself and its contents are covered by a limited publication ban, intended to protect Urquhart’s privacy and support his recovery, except to say that Urquhart has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is doing well with the treatment.

The limited ban was a compromise suggested by The Herald in a motion to court in response to Urquhart’s lawyer’s attempt to bury the entire fitness report and findings, ostensibly to support the reinstatement of ‘Urquhart.

Now that Urquhart has been deemed NCRMD, the BC review board will determine when, if at all, he can be safely released into the community and under what conditions.

Urquhart, 41, was hit with 14 criminal charges, including seven counts of assault, following the Jan. 24 melee in which he damaged municipal property and attacked workers.

According to testimony compiled by the RCMP and read into the record at a hearing in July, Urquhart arrived at the village office just before 11 a.m. with a hammer and knife strapped to a bandolier around his chest.

His attire consisted of hockey gear—jock, neck guard, shoulder pads, shin guards—as well as armored shorts, gloves with hard plastic knuckles, and boots with metal cleats on them.

Once inside the office, he smashed various objects, including safety glass at the counter, demanded to see the mayor, then chased at least two customers and a handful of village employees.

Once outside, he deflated the tires of a car in which two employees were trying to escape and was heard in the background of a 911 call shouting, “I’m a Teamster.” It’s your government’s money. It’s paid to kill me and my friends. I do not care. I’ve had it up to here.”

Other witnesses reported that Urquhart, who also attacked several vehicles, said he had been appointed by his uncle and the UN to fire everyone in the village office.

At least two female employees were injured by Urquhart – including one whom he repeatedly kicked after knocking her to the ground outside – as was the first RCMP officer on the scene, whom Urquhart punched him in the face while the constable was still in his car.

“Who the hell is this person? The writer’s father, a professor at Ohio State University, was a nice guy who patiently answered all of his son’s questions. However, from time to time he became a different person. When the whole family went out to dinner, her father complained about something to her stepmother with very violent language. At this point, the writer began to wonder “who was that stranger.”

Her father suffered from a serious mental illness called bipolar disorder. Once, when the writer was a freshman in college, his father told him that he “sometimes just wasn’t himself.” From then on, for 24 years, the writer, now a professor of psychiatry at UC San Francisco, wrote conversations with his father and published a book. To share how he overcame the stigma his father carried and his direct experience, he clearly describes the life he and his family went through because of his father’s illness.

In September 1936, the father jumped from the 3-meter-high roof. At 16, his mind was filled with the voice pleading to liberate Europe from the fascist movement. He attempted to fly off the roof of his family home, believing his arms had become wings, thinking he was the hero to save the liberal world.

The fight against stigma was much more demanding than the treatment of the disease. According to the author, there are three types of stigma: perceived stigma, courtesy stigma and self-stigma. His father always worried about others finding out about his illness (perceived stigma) and thought he was the most useless person who was a complete failure (self-stigma). Her mother had to go to great lengths to present her family as a normal family. (stigma of courtesy). And the writer and his little sister had to pretend to be normal like their mother wanted.

“Psychological pain, an honest conversation is really necessary”, says the writer. The surest way to overcome stigma is to restore faith in humanity and embrace people who are different from you.
