Table 4: Laborious Experiences I. Mental illness is not a setback
According to APA (American Psychological Association), the brain is the control center of any individual, it is the one responsible for our thinking skills and capabilities, if the brain is not working all of our system will also fail to do their functions, But what if a person has a mental illness does it mean that they couldn’t think properly? Yes, they might act like any person do, but they can actually think the same way that others did.

(In our case we just stick with the homecare, because if we tried to put her into a mental hospital her condition would be worst, that’s why we chose to just take her at home in which we could take care and treat her like a normal person. We tried to go to Manila and now to Malolos just to search for assistance but mental hospitals are like rehabs to

According to Neumann (2013), they discovered that mentally ill patient being admitted to the mental institutions are still treated with neglect, so sometimes it is true that there are some certain mentally ill patient that are better off in a hospital. This is evident that the bond in the relationship between the family members and the mentally ill individual has never weakened for as long as there are concerns and care that happens.
b. Dilemmas:
Caring for someone with mental health problems brings unique challenges. Mental health problems vary greatly in severity and causes. Mild problems are common and can be helped with understanding and support. More severe mental health disorders, such as major depression, are less common and pose more challenges. These problems are: social withdrawal, aggression and also unexplained hallucinations.
“Minsan, sobrang kulit para na siyang bata ngayon, Ay minsan nakakagigil, iyong kapatid ko nakukurot siya, paano nagluluto siya, kukulitin sya ng kukulitin dadamputin yung niluluto nya” (Informant 5, Lines 423-425 on Page

    However, as I 've gotten older I know its more of a hospital for the mentally unstable; people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and severe cases of depression. I used to think of the scary movies where people were being abused there but I now know that is not the case. Many people who are not in this field believe that psychiatric hospitals are like jails for the mentally ill but I think in-patient facilities are like that too. I don 't think of it as a jail but more of a holding place for these people to get treatment and get better. Psychiatric hospitals deal more with the doctors and what is really wrong with the person rather than therapy and counseling.…

    Overton and Medina mention that “research on educational campaigns suggests changes of behavior are often not assessed, effect sizes are limited, and programs are more effective for participants who have a better knowledge of mental illness before the education or had contact with persons with mental illness beforehand” (par. 38).

    For example, the mental illness that interferes with the capacity of a mentally ill offender to complete their supervision requirements due to delusions, side effects from medications, or cognitive impairments. As mention before, these clients are more difficult to supervise and unpredictable at times. The benefits of supervision are that they lower the danger they present to themselves and others, reduce the risk of committing a disastrous offense after their release, and enable them to adapt better in the community (U.S. Probation & Pretrial Services Texas Northern, n.d). Probation officers have limited mental health training much of their knowledge is based on experience (Brooker & Glyn, 2012, p.…
