As the population of the older adults increases, the health systems and in particular in the public sector will progressively be titled upon to offer mental health services, not only to the elderly but also to the young adults in the society. According to the recent research studies in the United States, one in three senior citizens exhibit clinically significant symptoms of mental illnesses with 10% of the older adults showing signs of clinical depression (Penkunas & Hahn-Smith 2015). The tendency in which mental disorder is growing is rampant across the population and notably increasing among the minors as well as the young adults.

There are various methods of medication in application depending on the cause of depression and the magnitude of the mental disorder. All these methods aim at reducing the intensity of the mental illness among patients. Medication management through intervention strategy to de-escalate the significance of mental illness among patients is one of the methods of the treatments (Penkunas & Hahn-Smith 2015). Intervention medication in most cases only works if the cause of the mental illness in a patient is as a result of other ailments in the body such as syphilis among others that are known to cause psychiatric disorders.

Comparison medication among mental health patients is not a valid method comparing to verbal de-escalation. Though the cause of the psychological disorder is a high determinant, verbal de-escalation turns out to be mandatory to assist the patient recover during and after medication. Verbal de-escalation is one of the skills that any health practitioners in the psychiatric field ought to devise.

The outcome of this project aims at reducing the period in which a patient takes to recover to completion. It will mainly be achieved through the intervention of intervention medication and verbal de-escalation. The time of hospitalization for both the inpatient and the outpatients will also reduce.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.
