About Psychiatric Hospitalization

When Psychiatric Hospitalization is Needed?

A psychiatrist’s decision to admit a patient to the hospital depends primarily on the severity of the patient’s illness. No one is sent to the hospital who can better be treated in the psychiatrist’s office or in another less restrictive setting. The presence or absence of social support–family members or other caretakers–can also figure in the psychiatrist’s decision to hospitalize a patient.

What is Mental Illness?

Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses can be associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.

Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a medical problem, just like heart disease or diabetes.

Mental illness is common. In a given year:

Nearly one in five (19%) U.S. adults experience some form of mental illness.

One in 24 (4.1%) has a serious mental illness*.

One in 12 (8.5%) has a diagnosable substance use disorder.

Mental illness is treatable. The vast majority of individuals with mental illness continue to function in their daily lives.

About Mental Health

Mental Health involves effective functioning in daily activities resulting in:

  • Productive activities (such as in work, school or care-giving).
  • Healthy relationships.
  • Ability to adapt to change and cope with adversity.

Mental Illness…refers collectively to all diagnosable mental disorders — health conditions involving:

  • Significant changes in thinking, emotion and/or behavior.
  • Distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.

Mental health is the foundation for emotions, thinking, communication, learning, resilience, hope and self-esteem. Mental health is also key to relationships, personal and emotional well-being and contributing to community or society. Mental health is a component of overall well-being. It can influence and be influenced by physical health.

Many people who have a mental illness do not want to talk about it. But mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of! It is a medical condition, just like heart disease or diabetes. And mental health conditions are treatable. We are continually expanding our understanding of how the human brain works, and treatments are available to help people successfully manage mental health conditions.

Why use Treatment & Rehabilitation

To eliminate drug addiction from society, awareness campaigns through mass media, essay contests, lectures and declamation contest in schools, colleges and universities should be run in order to create awareness about the ill­­­-effects of drug addiction. “Provincial education departments should develop a curriculum against drugs for inclusion in textbooks at school, college and university levels.”

The researches proved that people who start tobacco smoking and/or drink alcohol at young age are much more likely to experiment with illegal drugs than people who do not smoke or drink. “Efforts should be made to control the tobacco smoking in the country because it is the gateway to drug abuse.”

Awareness and prevention must start at home, with parents. Parents should be vigilant and keep an eye on the company and activities of their children and should spend more time with their children. They should keep their children busy and motivate them to offer their prayers regularly. Religious scholars should be encouraged to take up this issue in their Friday Sermons. “A drug-free life-style and a healthy society is very much a part of the Islamic way of life.”
