Scope and Importance:
Mental Illness or psychotherapeutic conditions are classified as abnormal thoughts, feelings, and behavior, for a determined amount of time, which causes distress or emotional/physical impairment. This includes a wide range of psychological or psychiatric disorders and often requires psychiatric intervention. Conditions can be caused by either a biological origin such as genetic, chemical, and anatomical; or a psychological origin such as trauma or conflict. Extraordinary advances have been made in the treatment of mental illness. An understanding of what causes some mental health disorders has led to greater sophistication in tailoring treatment to the underlying basis of each disorder. As a result, many mental health disorders can now be treated nearly as successfully as physical disorders.
Most treatment methods for mental health disorders can be categorized as either somatic or psychotherapeutic. Somatic treatments include drug therapy and electroconvulsive therapy. Psychotherapeutic treatments include individual, group, or family and marital psychotherapy; behavior therapy techniques (such as relaxation training or exposure therapy); and hypnotherapy. Most studies suggest that for major mental health disorders, a treatment approach involving both drugs and psychotherapy is more effective than either treatment method used alone. The psychotherapeutic drug industry continues to struggle through a morass of issues that are directly or indirectly affecting competition. Some hurdles recently faced by competitors in this market include advertising restrictions, label changes, and some general negative views about mental illness treatments. However, there have been considerable strides in many areas of the market including advanced delivery techniques, increased education and awareness efforts, and improved effectiveness.
Physical disorders are, compared to the general population, more prevalent in people with severe mental illness (SMI). Although this excess morbidity and mortality is largely due to modifiable lifestyle risk factors, the screening and assessment of physical health aspects remain poor, even in developed countries. Moreover, a specific patient, provider, treatment and system factors act as barriers to the recognition and to the management of physical diseases in people with SMI. Psychiatrists can play a pivotal role in the improvement of the physical health of these patients by expanding their task from clinical psychiatric care to the monitoring and treatment of crucial physical parameters. At a system level, actions are not easy to realize, especially for developing countries. However, at an individual level, even simple and very basic monitoring and treatment actions, undertaken by the treating clinician, can already improve the problem of suboptimal medical care in this population. Adhering to monitoring and treatment guidelines will result in a substantial enhancement of physical health outcomes.
Furthermore, psychiatrists can help educate and motivate people with SMI to address their suboptimal lifestyle, including smoking, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise. The adoption of the recommendations presented in this paper across healthcare systems throughout the world will contribute to a significant improvement in the medical and related psychiatric health outcomes of patients with SMI.
