Please respond to the following:
In Chapter 14 in your text book, various types of mental disorders that affect individuals of all ages are discussed. Based on what you have read in your book, please answer the following: I’m listing some of the disorders from the book: Obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobic disorder, anxiety disorder, Dissociative identity disorder, major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder are a few.
1. Choose ONE of the disorders and tell us about someone you know (it can be within your family, your circle of friends, a relative, a neighbor, or just someone you know with this disorder) and describe how this person acts that leads you to believe they have this disorder. Please do not reveal either the first or last name of the individual or anything that would be identifying information. Make up names!
2. Explain how this individual is treated by others within the family/ neighborhood/ community. Are they treated differently and if so, in what ways?
3. Do you believe that the disorder you described carries a negative stigma or bias with it? Why or why not?
