  • 10. Empowerment of Patients
    • Gaining Psychological Control of Your Chronic Illness, Dr Vijai P. Sharma, PhD, gives some important advice:
    • ― If a disease becomes for you a life-long companion, the more determined you feel to manage it, the more you can improve on the quality of life you live. Whether you have arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, emphysema, or any other chronic illness, you can make a difference in what happens to you. You can learn to play a more active role, cope better, and exercise greater control over the outcome of your illness and your capability to function in life.

    • When you become an expert in your disease, you manage it better. Learn everything you can find about your condition. That will give you ideas as to what actions to take to minimize your disability and complications.
    • Become an active partner in your treatment and rehabilitation and help your doctor to help you
    • To do this effectively a patient must have emotional resources
    11
  • 12. Mental Health and Chronic Illnesses messages to patients: Maintain a hopeful outlook. An optimistic outlook enables you to expect that good things will happen in your life. Try visualizing what you want, rather than worrying about what you fear. Take care of yourself. Pay attention to your own needs and feelings. Engage in activities that you enjoy and find relaxing. Exercise regularly.

    • The Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care ( http://www.ipfcc.org/advance/topics/pc -selfmgmt.html) describes self-management support as :
    • ― the education and resources that are offered to individuals with chronic conditions to support them in building their confidence and competence to manage their conditions. Health care providers work collaboratively with patients and their families to make decisions about their care. For people with chronic conditions, this means making lifestyle changes as well as following through with treatment and medication regimens. patients' and family members' goals, priorities, values, and needs as well as evidence-based clinical options. Together they create a plan that guides care in the clinical setting and at home.

    20
  • 21. WMHD Call to Action
    • The need to create awareness and change public perception of mental health. Reduction of stigma essential.
    • Sensitize the public on the issues of mental health.
    • Strongly encourage a commitment to education and training, with emphasis on the importance of addressing the mental health concerns of our patients with chronic health conditions.
    • This includes education and training of our medical students and junior doctors, and also needs to be included as part of the continuing life-long professional development of all medical practitioners.
    21
  • 22. conclusion
    • Optimal care of patients requires integration of divergent concepts about health and disease, as well as the involvement of people and providers across numerous disciplines. For both the treatment and prevention of illness, we need to overcome the understandable tendency to see medical and psychiatric conditions as separate and unrelated, World Mental Health Day gives us an opportunity to reach out and bring together patients, medical clinicians, health care systems, and the general public.
