With the use of non-jargonistic language and some visual information, you will be able to communicate your knowledge and provide education to help promote mental health and recovery of consumers and their carers/family/significant others. You will need the scenario called Mike’s story for both Assessments 2 and 3. Mike’s story Mike is a 21-year-old male who presented in Emergency Department (ED) with thoughts of self-harm, agitation and insomnia. He was brought in by his flatmate who is a student nurse, who had noticed the changes in his mental health. He has not been sleeping well and gained weight over the last two years. Mike has moved from Melbourne to Sydney to study engineering at university. After two years of working part time in a construction firm, he was given the opportunity to supervise some of his co-workers. This is a new role and Mike found this to be very challenging, particularly as he is required to supervise a crew. He wants to show his supervisors that he can do the job. When he arrived in ED, he was agitated, had minimal eye contact, difficult to engage and would only engage with a handful of the nurses. Lately, he has been having trouble sleeping. A GP from a medical centre prescribed Temazepam 20mg nocte. He also started taking Phenergan 10mg to help him sleep. He has previously taken Phenergan for his allergies which he can buy from the chemist without a prescription. He thought this might help with his sleepless nights. He has been watching shows in his iPad in bed at night, in the hope that it would help him go to sleep. The medications did not help and instead, he stated that it kept him more awake at night. He started smoking marijuana to help manage his insomnia with very little effect. He stated that he has intermittent sleep and has not slept properly for 6 days. He has been supported by his GP and a private psychologist since he was 19 years old, when he was first diagnosed with anxiety. However, since he moved to Sydney, he has not found a GP in Sydney that he can trust. He continues to be on Fluoxetine 20mg daily but feels that he needs it reviewed because of his low mood. He voiced that his long-term goal is to cease the medication and ‘this would what make me feel like I have recovered’. He expressed that he is not ready to stop his medications. Mike admitted that he previously had thoughts of harming himself by crashing his car. This was the reason his GP commenced him on Fluoxetine and Mike started seeing a psychologist who helped him with his self-harm thoughts which helped him. However, these self-harm thoughts and feelings are starting to return, and he does not want these thoughts to consume his life again. He does not have any family in Sydney. He is reluctant to tell his family in Melbourne about the changes in his mental health. They do not know that he is on medications for his anxiety. He stated that although his family are very supportive, he did not want to burden them with his problems. He knows that his mother would want him to go back home to Melbourne. He said that going back home would make him feel like he failed. ‘I am an adult and not a child anymore’. Mi​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ke started to feel inadequate, constantly second guessing himself and was irritable at work. He also started to gain weight since he started on Fluoxetine two years ago. He does not have the time nor the energy to exercise due to work and study. He really wants to lose weight and go back to his ideal weight to play football again. But he feels unmotivated at the moment due to his mood. He is too scared to go to Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at work and does not want to let his supervisors know. He does not want to be seen as incompetent at his new role as a supervisor. Task You are to create and submit a 400-word A4 poster via Turnitin with a reference list in a separate Word document. Using the scenario Mike’s story, you will choose a topic to create a poster that will help Mike and his carers/family and significant others to have a better understanding of Mike’s mental ill-health or illness and help the consumer move closer to their recovery. This poster should be educational, help promote good mental health and easily understood by non-health professionals. HINT: To help you, think of some topics that you would like to provide Mike and his carers/family/significant others from the scenario (Mike’s story), that would help promote positive mental health and recovery. Think of information that could help with early intervention to prevent mental ill-health or mental illness for Mike. The poster should effectively communicate the key message in an engaging and succinct manner. Use evidence-based information with a minimum of 5 relevant, current, peer-reviewed academic resources.
