Mental Health Problems and ATOS

Image

Mental health is considerably underestimated and, the effect it can have, not just for that person, but for their families and, society as a whole.

Image

In the United Kingdom mental illness accounts for a third of all afflictions and, at any given time, one person in six undergo anxiety or depression.

Image

In England, mental health disorders cost roughly £105 billion a year, owing to deficit of income and related treatment and welfare costs.

The cost to a person with a mental health disease can furthermore be high because left untreated, such disorders can result in being unemployed, homelessness, the break up of families and, eventually taking one’s own life.

Owing to the ongoing humiliation that some people have about mental health disorder, many individuals are unwilling to talk about any mental health problems they have had.

While mental health disorders are not usually life threatening, left untreated, they can lead to pursuits and behaviours that are physically damaging and, in some instances, life-threatening.

For example

Physical disregard for oneself

Alcohol and drug misuse self-harm

Suicide

Despite the fact that suicide rates have dropped by 20% since 1998, suicide still remains one of the main reasons of death in younger people and adults who are under 45 years of age.

The most widespread mental health disorders to have an effect on adults in England are assorted anxiety depressive disorders, and illness where an individual experiences the manifestations of depression and anxiety and, it is estimated to affect 1 in 10 adults in any given year.

Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), a disorder where a person experiences constant and acute sensations of anxiety, is estimated to affect 1 in 20 adults each year.

Periods of moderate to acute depression, which is estimated to affect 1 in 40 adults a year.

Image

Phobias, an extreme, or illogical fear, such as a fear of heights, or animals; phobias are estimated to affect 1 in 40 adults a year.

Image

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), a condition where an individual experiences all-consuming thoughts or compulsive behaviours, is estimated to affect 1 in 75 adults a year.

Panic disorders (also known as panic attacks), which are estimated to affect 1 in 80 adults a year.

Image

More complicated adult mental health disorders are usually less widespread than the mental health conditions that are stated above, but they can have a considerable effect on the quality of a person’s life and can be more challenging to remedy.

These additional complex mental health disorders include, Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression), Post traumatic stress disorder, anorexia and personality disorders.

There  is a span of further disorders that while are not strictly mental health conditions, can frequently benefit from the input of mental health services, these include:

Autistic spectrum disorder

Dementia

Drug and alcohol dependence and

Stroke because many people who are recuperating from a stroke incident, have manifestations of anxiety and depression

So, presently you can see why there have been so many people complaining against ATOS because they’re failing people with Mental Health Disorders because the work capability assessments are not equipped to cope with Mental Health issues and, consequently people with Mental Health difficulties are scoring no points at all and, by the time ATOS are interrogated, they have handed it over to some other company that’s dealing with it, so if people want to protest, they have to go somewhere else, to see someone else instead of ATOS who have now conveniently vanished back into the woodwork, like the critters that they are.

Image

People do not expect to be regarded as animals by ATOS workers, in fact animals at the zoo in all likelihood get treated better than they would do by ATOS employees.

Yet in today’s culture one has to be a bootlicker to get on in this life, or else your place of employment will criticise you for doing the correct thing, this is why an ATOS workers disposition regarding another human being is one of entertainment because I’m sure that’s what they all require just to get through a functioning day.

I’m sure that not all employees that work for ATOS really agrees with what goes on in the company, especially those workers that have family members that are also disabled; you just couldn’t fulfil your job description without some type of jocular mirth, sadly that entertainment is at the cost of the person who is being assessed.

I believe that people ridicule other people because in their own twisted minds, it gives them some kind of power kick, but what they don’t realise is that their amusement is futile and mean and, no one is unfailing and, the scorn that those people display to others, will one day be manifested to them and, it’s shameful that one human being should be displaying another human being such hideous and contemptible behaviour which they classify as a power kick.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...

    1. I am certain that there will be in time to come, however, as you will understand, I am simply one small person, and I cannot cover all alone. Nevertheless, if you ever want to come and write for me, I would be happy to look at what you have to say. I will look forward to hearing from you. I am so apologetic that it took so long to get back to you, but your communication went to my spam.
