describe and analyze a specific mental health need from practice or in a community.

Module 06 – Thought Disorders
Your last six modules will incorporate a project in which you
describe and analyze a specific mental health need from practice or in a
community. For the project, you will choose an individual or a
community from your clinical or work setting with a mental health need
and you will apply the principles of the nursing process toward
recommending interventions for that individual or community. Examples of
possible subjects include but are not limited to:

A patient on a mental health unitA resident of a long term care facilityA member of a group homeThe entire group home facilitySeveral home care clients who share the same needRefugees from one country who settled in one neighborhoodPeople with alcoholism lacking resources in their communityPeople with schizophrenia in your city
Remember that you’re not writing another typical nursing care plan,
but identifying ONE particular need that is unmet for that individual or
community.
The final written assignment will be 5-6 pages (Not including cover page and references which should be in APA format) and will be due during
Module 11. However, here is the suggested schedule for planning and
completing your project on time:
Module 06
Start thinking about your project. Did someone stand out during work
or a clinical experience which drew your attention? Do you see an unmet
need in your community? Did you already identify a need and carried out a
project that you would like to tell us about? This week: Choose the
Mental Health Concern – and the Patient or Community – for your project.
Module 07
Continue Your Semester Project by writing a brief history of the
patient including diagnoses and medications – or a brief description of
the community issue.
Module 08
Continue Semester Project by including any substance abuse, addiction
or violence issues surrounding this mental health problem. Describe the
attempted interventions that have been made for your patient or
community, and identify what has been successful and what has not.
Submit a rough draft of information gathered so far.
Module 09
Continue Your Semester Project by describing your thoughts regarding
your patient’s or community’s mental health issue. Are there any
cognitive concerns? Think about interventions that may be helpful.
Include sources for evidence-based practice.

Continue your Semester Project by listing appropriate nursing
interventions for your chosen patient or community. How will you
