Study Notes

Mental Health, Personality, and Coping Mechanisms Overview

  • Deinstitutionalism aims to reintegrate patients into society as productive and independent individuals, but not all patients may achieve this
  • Mental health encompasses seven important characteristics, including the ability to determine reality, possess a healthy self-concept, relate to others, find meaning in life, demonstrate creativity and productivity, control behavior, and possess adaptability
  • Personality is an enduring pattern of behavior and relating to oneself and others, influenced by heredity, birth order, environment, and the neurological system
  • Freud's three functional components of the mind are the id, ego, and superego, with anxiety resulting from the struggle to balance impulsive id with strict superego
  • Coping mechanisms involve conscious responses to challenging events, while defense mechanisms are unconscious processes to relieve anxiety, which can become maladaptive when interfering with reality or relationships
  • Examples of defense mechanisms include denial, repression, suppression, dissociation, reaction formation, regression, sublimation, projection, displacement, intellectualization, conversion reaction, avoidance, and restitution
  • Mental illness is a clinically significant behavioral or psychological syndrome that interferes with daily functioning and judgment
  • Competency is a legal assessment of a person's ability to make reasonable judgments and decisions, and voluntary commitment occurs when a patient realizes they need help and signs themselves in
  • Involuntary commitment is initiated by someone other than the client, involves a formal petition, assessment by two physicians, and can be emergency, short-term, or long-term
  • Deinstitutionalism, mental health, personality development, Freud's components of the mind, coping mechanisms, and defense mechanisms are all crucial concepts in the field of mental health and psychology.
