  • Title: Resources | Pacific Clinics
    Descriptive info: Resources.. Mental Health at a Glance.. Mental illnesses are disorders of the brain that disrupt a person s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning.. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are brain disorders that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of daily life.. Mental illnesses are NOT the result of personal weakness, lack of character, or a poor upbringing.. Mental illness cuts across all levels of society and can affect people of any age, race, religion, or education or income level.. What Causes Mental Illness?.. The exact cause of most mental illnesses is not known, but research suggests that a combination of factors, including heredity, biology, psychological trauma, and environmental stress, may be involved.. Heredity (genetics).. Serious mental illnesses such as bipiolar disorder and major depression tend to run in families, which means the.. likelihood.. to develop a mental disorder may be passed on from parents to their children.. Biology.. Some mental disorders have been linked to special chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters.. Neurotransmitters help nerve cells in the brain communicate with each other.. If these chemicals are out of balance or not working properly, messages may not make it through the brain correctly, leading to symptoms.. Defects in or injury to certain areas of the brain have also been linked to some mental.. illnesses.. Psychological trauma.. Some mental illnesses may be triggered by psychological trauma, such as severe emotional, physical, or sexual abuse; an important early loss, such as the loss of a parent; or.. neglect.. Environmental stress.. Stressful or traumatic events can trigger a mental illness in a person with a vulnerability to a mental disorder.. Effective treatment for mental illness, in most cases, includes biological, educational, and social interventions.. While medication is a cornerstone of treatment for mental illness, it should also always be seen as the means of improving psychological and social interventions.. Types of mental illness commonly treated by the Clinics.. Schizophrenia.. Although widely feared and misunderstood, schizophrenia is actually a highly treatable brain disorder that affects more than two million Americans in a given year.. Many people with schizophrenia experience hallucinations and delusions, which often occur for the first time in the late teens or young adulthood.. Because the disorder causes unusual, inappropriate, and self destructive or, in rare cases, dangerous behavior, people with schizophrenia are often unnecessarily shunned and stigmatized.. However, almost all people with the disorder are not dangerous when they are in treatment, although their behavior can be unpredictable.. Research has shown that people with schizophrenia who attend structured, psychosocial rehabilitation programs and continue with their medicinal treatment manage their illness best.. Bipolar Disorder.. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a serious medical illness that affects more than two million adults in the United States.. It is characterized by extreme shifts in mood, energy, and functioning.. People with bipolar disorder experience alternating episodes of mania (severe highs) and depression (severe lows).. These episodes of abnormally intense moods may last for days, weeks, or even months, and are often separated by periods of fairly normal moods.. Bipolar disorder is a chronic condition with recurring episodes that often begin in adolescence or early adulthood.. It generally requires ongoing treatment.. Treatment is successful in 80 to 90 percent of all cases, depending upon individual response and responsibility.. There is considerable disparity in treatment among ethnic groups for this disease; African Americans, Asians and Latinos with bipolar disorder often go  ...   fulfilling lives.. Alcohol, Drug Abuse, Addiction, and Co-occurring Disorders.. Co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders are common.. On average, more than half (52 percent) of persons surveyed in the past few years who have ever been diagnosed with alcohol abuse or dependence have also experienced a mental disorder at some time in their lives.. An even larger proportion (59 percent) of people with a history of other drug abuse or dependence also had experienced a mental disorder.. Mental health problems often predate substance abuse problems by four to six years; alcohol or other drugs may be used as a form of self-medication to alleviate the symptoms of the mental disorder.. In some cases, substance abuse precedes the development of mental health problems.. For instance, anxiety and depression may be brought on as a response to stressors from broken relationships, lost employment, and other situations directly related to an alcohol and/or drug-using lifestyle.. Children s Mental Illness.. One in five families (seven out of every 100 children) are said to be impacted by significant mental disorders, including attention deficit disorder, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, and dyslexia.. What Are Some of the Symptoms of Mental Illness in Children?.. Children s symptoms vary depending on the type of mental illness, but some of the general symptoms include:.. Changes in school performance, such as poor grades despite good effort.. Abuse of drugs and/or alcohol.. Inability to cope with daily problems and activities.. Changes in sleeping and/or eating habits.. Excessive complaints of physical ailments.. Defying authority, skipping school, stealing, or damaging property.. Intense fear of gaining weight.. Long-lasting negative moods, often accompanied by poor appetite and thoughts of death.. Frequent outbursts of anger.. Loss of interest in friends and activities they usually enjoy.. Significant increase in time spent alone.. Excessive worrying or anxiety.. Hyperactivity.. Persistent nightmares or night terrors.. Persistent disobedience or aggressive behavior.. Frequent temper tantrums.. Hearing voices or seeing things that are not there (hallucinations).. Substance use and abuse can be an issue that affects the mental health of preteens as well as adolescents and young adults..

  • Title: Pacific Clinics expert helps identify why more Asian Americans don't access mental health treatment | Pacific Clinics
    Descriptive info: Rocco Cheng of Pacific Clinics shared the Disparity report with U.. Mike Honda, D-Campbell, in Washington, D.. C.. Pacific Clinics expert helps identify why more Asian Americans don t access mental health treatment.. What are some of the barriers that prevent more Asian American/Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in California from seeking mental health services?.. A new.. report.. by Pacific Clinics C.. , project director of the California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP) API Strategic Planning Workgroup, identifies a lack of access to care and availability of culturally-appropriate services as well as language barriers and other roadblocks.. Even though many people might think that Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have low rates of serious mental illness, there is evidence to show otherwise, said Cheng, Pacific Clinics corporate director of Prevention and Intervention Services.. Depression and anxiety disorders as well as suicide are very high among some of these populations.. According to the Asian Pacific Islander American Health Forum, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders had the highest rates of depression and the second highest rates of anxiety disorders among all racial groups.. API women aged 65 and older consistently have the highest suicide rate compared to other racial groups.. The.. CRDP API Population Report.. also known as the Disparity report was  ...   Larke N.. Huang, Ph.. , director of the Office of Behavioral Health Equity at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration with the U.. Department of Health and Human Services, discussed the importance of the report in her comments.. In addition, Cheng attended several Washington, D.. events organized by such groups as the President s Advisory Commission on AAPIs.. He distributed the report at this and other events.. For the report, Cheng and his staff traveled throughout California to gather data and feedback from AAPI mental health consumers, professionals, advocates and others.. The report makes numerous recommendations at the provider, agency and system level on how each entity can improve mental health services for AAPIs.. They include, for agencies, providing resources to train interpreters to work in mental health settings, and a system recommendation to recognize the importance and support more time that is needed for engagement and trust building among AAPIs.. The full report can be found.. (Note: Pacific Clinics Asian Pacific Services Division has been offering a wide array of culturally sensitive mental health programs at its Asian Pacific Family Centers for more than 20 years.. APFC staff are available to provide services in ten Asian languages and dialects.. For more information about APFC, click.. )..
