Antianxiety Drugs- to relieve tension, anxiety & nervousness- benzodiazepines, tranquilizers- ex. Valium, Xanax- very commonly prescribed- common side effects: drowsy, lightheaded, dry mouth, depressed (Table 15.1)- also patients can experience withdrawal- potential for abuse and overdose has been exaggerated- newer drug: Buspar 2. Antipsychotic Drugs- mainly used to treat schizophrenia - effective for 70% of patients to some degree - common side effects: drowsy, constipation, cotton mouth, Parkinson’s-type symptoms, tardive dyskinesia - newer drug class: atypical antipsychotics 3. Antidepressant Drugs- to elevate mood and relieve depression- classes: tricyclics, MAO inhibitors, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors- SSRIs most popular nowadays- they slow the reuptake at serotonin synapses- ex. Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft- side effects: weight gain, sleep problems, sexual dysfunctionLithium & Mood Stabilizers- lithium mainly used to treat bipolar disorder- it stops and prevents manic & depressive episodes- high concentrations of lithium are toxic, so it must be monitored very carefully- mood stabilizers were developed as alternatives to lithium- the most popular mood stabilizer is valproic acid, also effective for bipolar disorder and with less adverseeffects Criticisms:- superficial, short lived effects- relapse often occurs when drugs are discontinued- overmedication/overprescription- damage of side effects*Controversial issue: the pharmaceutical companies and the drug industry Biomedical Therapy #2: Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) - light anesthesia- electrodes attached to the skull over temporal lobes of the brain- electrical current applied for about 1 sec- triggers a convulsive seizure (~30 sec)- usually the patient wakes up after 1-2 hours with some confusion and nausea which clear up in a couple of hours- usually 6-12 treatments are givenThere are many misconceptions about ECT, a lot of stigma.

Mental Health Institutions- 1840s: Dorothea Dix- Provide care and proper treatment- BUT: overcrowded, isolated, underfunded- 1950s: revolving door problem- 1960s: Community Mental Health Movement -local community based care- less inpatient hospitalization- prevention of psychological disorders Deinstitutionalization: effective drug therapies emerged- TODAY: inpatient care - local general hospitals– specialized mental hospitals– briefer period of time– more personalized care Continuing Problems in Mental Health Care:In Canada (vs. United States)- homelessness (psychiatric survivors)- lack of government funding for community care and local hospitals (** Ontario)- over-reliance on drug therapy for mild disorders- third-party insurance companies Therapeutic Services – WHERE?- Schools and Universities- Social Services- Community Mental Health Centres- Local Hospitals- Private Practice Therapeutic Services – WHO?- Psychologists- Psychological Associates- Psychiatrists- Social Workers- Psychotherapists- Family Doctors Considerations when looking for a therapist- Theoretical orientation- Gender- Sensitivity to minority issues (i.e., sexual orientation, ethno-cultural)- Area of specialization- A good therapeutic relationship York’s Counselling & Development Centre:- Free as a York student, 416-736-5297 Other Resources:- Gerstein Centre (24-hour crisis line)
