Introduction
Mental health issues are some of the most common health issues faced by individuals and are one of the most neglected aspect of human health. Schizophrenia refers to mental illness, which interferes with the
ain functioning; thus, individuals suffering from schizophrenia often experience psychosis. This report would focus upon Jason (32 year old male) from western Sydney on his mental health. Jason was diagnosed with schizophrenia since, he was 19 years old and this report would present an insight based upon his cu
ent mental health condition. Likewise, efforts would be made to present some aspects of mental health act and other essential strategies from the perspective of a restored nurse while handling patients such as Jason. This report would conclude with the discussion of an appropriate medication for Jason along with personal safety while handling such patients.
Application of Mental Health Act to the Presented Case Scenario
Mental health and mental health issues could be a serious concern considering the life of patient as well as other individuals around them. The Mental Health Act of 1983 suggests that individuals with severe mental illness could be held at the hospital under Mental Health Act. In other words, under Mental Health Act individuals suffering from severe mental illness would be detained at hospitals or treated against their will, if the professionals consider the mental health of patient as a threat to others lives (Rethink Mental illness, 2020).
    The presented case clearly reflects that Jason’s mental health condition was not optimal and those voices from his head could have gotten worse and it was a major threat to his life as well to the life of his mates. Therefore, application of Mental Health Act followed by Jason’s detainment at the hospital resulted into betterment of his mental health condition.
Legal And Ethical Issues In Relation To the Patient’s Rights.
There can be numerous ethical and legal issues with respect to patient’s rights concerning detention under Mental Health Act. Patients can only be detained if they possess mental disorder, cannot seek hospital assessment or the professionals consider that patient needs hospital care for safety of patient as well as others around them.
    Tingle, (2018) mentioned that patients detained under section 2 or 3 possess the right to apply to a tribunal, if they consider the detainment to be unnecessary. Likewise, under section 2 doctor can only keep the patient under detention for next 28 days and hospital staff cannot extend the timeline of section 2. Under section 2, patient can apply for tribunal within first 14 days of detainment, patient can appeal to the hospital managers and patient can also seek Independent Mental Health Advocate (IMHA) to get their voices heard. However, under section 3 of Mental Health Act, patient can report to the tribunal only once in the first 6 months, patient can ask the hospital manager to discharge them and can seek Independent Mental Health Advocate (IMHA) (Shaw & Middleton, 2016).
Ethical concerns include maintaining confidentiality and disclosure with respect to patient’s personal information. Likewise, diagnosis or treatment of patients admitted involuntarily for treatment should be done based upon their prior history. Bipeta (2019) suggested that lack of adequate history is one of the major ethical issues and...
