Compare and contrast older ATSI mental health and older non-ATSI mental health. Common mental health conditions (and their respective prevalence rates) for older ATSI and non-ATSI individuals. How does intergenerational trauma impact older ATSI mental health compared to non-ATSI mental health?
As a health care practitioner, you may be required to work with people from various developmental stages, including older adults. Aging brings distinctive biological, psychological, social and existential challenges which can impact on mental health and wellbeing. However, with Australia’s diverse, aging population Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) individuals also experience a series of different mental health issues when moving into older age. Indeed conceptions of and experiences of aging well may vary with culture. Healthcare practitioners need to be considerate of these differences in older population groups and account for them in their patient centred care.
For your essay, you are required to compare and contrast older ATSI mental health and older non-ATSI mental health. Within your essay, you need to address the following questions:
What are the common mental health conditions (and their respective prevalence rates) for older ATSI and non-ATSI individuals?
What are the common risk facts for various mental health conditions for older ATSI and non-ATSI individuals?
How does intergenerational trauma impact older ATSI mental health compared to non-ATSI mental health?
What are the most evidence-based mental health treatments for older ATSI individuals?
How do these treatments differ from non-ATSI mental health treatments?
Hint: This is potentially a very large topic, so it may be useful to focus on illustrative examples of a few common mental health issues and the ‘treatment’ rather than undertake a comprehensive survey of all evidence based treatments.
