children with a mental illness

Reply to:


I would like to do a research proposal on the relationship between mental health and addiction (both alcohol and drug). If intervention for children with a mental illness is done at a young age will it decrease the likelihood of addiction in adolescents and above ages? This topic will add to current research. It will help further the understanding of how addiction and mental health can be interconnected. Some of the ethical considerations to think about are the ages of the participates and the permissions that need to be obtained. Other considerations are confidentiality and human subjects’ protection, objectiveness, honesty, integrity, and carefulness (Myers & Hansen, 2012).

mixture of biology and environment

PART I – In the chapter on sexual behavior, we learned that different cultures and countries view sexual orientation in various ways. For example, in some places, sexual orientation is viewed as a learned behavior that people have a choice over, and individuals are ostracized if their orientation or behavior is not the same as the majority’s behavior. In other areas, sexual orientation is considered a biological matter, implying that choice is not part of it. In other locations, sexual orientation is considered a mixture of biology and environment, where both influences are present

  • Do you believe sexual orientation is an issue that we, as a society, should be involved in? Why or why not?

PART II – Reflect upon late adulthood. How do people in your country or culture generally view the process of getting older? You may include your thoughts on values, beliefs, expectations, and cultural practices surrounding late adulthood. Relate your answers to lifespan theories and to death and dying.

It is critical to remember that this is an intellectual discussion and your peers may have different points of view and experiences; therefore, be sensitive and respectful to your peers’ comments. This discussion is about learning with our peers, so keep in mind the open-minded and multi-perspective aim of this discussion.

assess nursing competency

How does your health care organization assess nursing competency? Does your organization use a formal tool?  Can we observe “competency”, or can we measure it in another way?
