MENTAL HEALTH - LEARNING HOW TO COMMUNICATE BY SIGNING LANGUAGE

Studying Signing Language

As part of my degree course, I committed to study how to communicate via signing language. I started by contacting a mentor, whom I had pre negotiated with, to help me throughout this period. My mentor is a teacher in a learning disability school, at the riverside school in Orpington. I had previously met my mentor and her class as part of my placement in my first year. Hence, I had already familiarised myself with the school and some of the students.

Mental Health Nurse

CARE AND MANAGEMENT OF ADOLESCENTS WITH MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS AND DISORDERS

Mental Health Nurse Introduction

I am currently training to become a mental health nurse and practioner. Prior to this course, I was amongst that population in the society who had no idea and very little knowledge about the severity of this illness. Infact, I, alongside others, regarded any mental challenged individual and disorder with a stigma. Ignorantly, I also did not think about the thoughts of knowing children and teenagers could also be sufferers. I always knew I wanted to follow a career as a nurse because I enjoyed looking and working with people.

PART ONE: General comments on the chosen article and why.

I chose to read the article on ‘The secrets of happiness’ by Richard Layard.' The title alone was very attractive. Happiness is what I believe most people — if not everyone, are in search for. So as it read, the secrets of happiness, I was very curious to know what these secrets were and possibly learn from them. I want to be happy as well.
