Mental illness is one of the top public health challenges in Europe as measured by prevalence, burden of disease and disability. It is estimated that mental disorders affect more than a third of the population every year, the most common of these being depression and anxiety. About 1-2% of the population have psychotic disorders, and across Europe 5.6% of men and 1.3% of women have substance misuse disorders. The ageing population is leading to an increase in the number of people with dementia, 5% of people over 65 and 20% of those over 80 years of age. In all countries, most mental disorders are more prevalent among those who are most deprived. The prevalence of mental disorders does not appear to be changing significantly over time, though more people are accessing treatment and support as understanding grows and the stigma of mental illness is reducing. This Scottish Government’s mental health strategy to 2015 sets out a range of key commitments across the full spectrum of mental health improvement, services and recovery to ensure delivery of effective, quality care and treatment for people with a mental illness, their carers and families.

Too much too young

Author:
MIZEN Susan
Journal article citation:
Young Minds Magazine, 116, Summer 2012, pp.19-21.
Publisher:
YoungMinds

This article examines how the experiences of being a carer during childhood can have long-term consequences in later life. The author, a consultant running a psychotherapy service for people with serious mental health problems, had noticed that about 25% of patients had been involved in a caring capacity during childhood for a parent or sibling. The article suggests that the long-term emotional and financial costs of placing the burden of care on young people might provide an incentive to policy makers to provide adequate support to families where children are caring for sick relatives.

Crossing the acts: the support and protection of adults at risk with mental disorder: across the Scottish legislative frameworks

Many adults with a mental disorder need access to care and treatment and adequate support and protection. However, the tenet of this work is that adults at risk with mental disorder require a dedicated and, sometimes, a specialist approach to support and protection; primarily because their needs and risks are particular and can be complex in nature. A response to risk in many cases may need access to a comprehensive range of legislative provisions and a broad and, sometimes, specialist framework of care and support. This book explores the risks of adults with a mental disorder and how the relative Scottish legislation, policy and practice frameworks interrelate to provide them with support and protection. The book explores the dilemmas, difficulties and deliberations, for those who protect and support adults at risk with mental disorder in Scotland across the various Acts.
