Sample text

This reflects the incomplete resolution of the intellectual and political debate regarding the role and place of biological factors and medical approaches in the illnesses, recoveries and well-being of survivors, and potentially, the biomedical domain overshadowing other contributions. Again in this volume we have elected to accept some divergence of usage. We frequently adopt the international usage of the term ‘disorder’ by the Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders: Clinical Descriptions and Guidelines (ICD-10) (WHO 1992), and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) of the American Psychiatric Association (1994).

These establishments, especially in LAMICs, are not infrequently characterized by sexual and physical abuse, neglect (for example of health care), exploitation (for example through forced labour), injury owing to neglect or abuse, discrimination, and rejection. Contrary to popular perception, those with mental disorders far more often endure violence than perpetrate it. Due processes and review of conditions of confinement are lacking, as are opportunities to exercise rights and freedoms. Neither are services, communities, and health and mental health professionals exempt from collusion in these practices.

Those with long-term mental health problems commonly experience ‘diagnostic overshadowing’ (their physical health problems go undiagnosed), they have more chronic health problems occurring at an earlier age, are at greater risk of poverty, and die earlier (Disability Rights Commission 2006). People with mental disorders are also much less often employed, a status that arises from misconceptions about their disability and as a consequence of discrimination against them: hence, to fulfill their capabilities, they may need access to supported employment (WHO and World Bank 2011).
