Introduction
Mental Health and Mental Illness are states of human existence having precise
definitions. Mental Health is a state of emotional, psychological and social wellness
evidenced by interpersonal relationships, effective behavior coping, positive self-
concept and emotional stability. While mental illness is a clinically significant behavioral
or psychological syndrome or patterns that occurs in an individual and that is associated
with present distress, associated with present distress, increased risk of suffering,
death, disability and loss of freedom such disorders are defined by a combination of
affective, behavioral, cognitive or perceptual components, which may be associated with
particular functions or regions of the brain or nervous system, often in a social context.
The recognition and understanding of mental health conditions have changed over time
and across cultures, and there are still variations in definition, assessment and
classification, although standard guideline criteria are widely used. Over a third of
people in most countries report problems at some time in their life which meet criteria
for diagnosis of one or more of the common types of mental disorder.
In our exposure in National Center for Mental Heath in the Philippines (NCMH),
being a student nurse for mental health was great lifetime experience, it fulfills our
career as a health provider; benefit us and our resident to give best nursing care.
Handling a mentally challenged person was difficult task to do, but with our
determination to cope with this situation, we have support system including our
knowledge, skills and our clinical instructor, to provide us to face the behavior and
stressful events inside the institution. One of the leading mentally disorder is
Undifferentiated Schizophrenia. Residents in this condition have the characteristic of
positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia but do not meet the specific criteria
for the paranoid, disorganized, or catatonic subtypes.
