By doing so, the paper will create a clear understanding of the policies and structures behind the psychiatry’s effect on social practice in mental institutions (Boyle, 2010, p.67).
Social workers are experts when it comes to identifying social and environmental factors that led to mental disturbance like stigma and abuse on personal development through questions, reflections and challenges within the multidisciplinary context. The individual’s strength, aspirations and vulnerabilities in the cultural context, social and family relationships are analysed critically from the start (Foster, 2007.p. 120). They work together with service users to encourage them to feel socially included by mobilizing a range of community resources, network and voluntary services. In the duty of offering protection to those who may be at risk of harm, the social workers must balance the legal and human rights issues of risk and safety in order to achieve the least restrictive alternative within the statutory roles and responsibilities. They also work together with family care to help seek change in the social and environmental context hence support the recovery of an individual (Rout ledge 2005, p. 89)
A Norwegian psychiatrist, Odegaard brings out the idea of reports that indicated a higher incidence of mental illness among immigrants explained by the fact that some migrants are genetically predisposed to develop mental illness. Mental disturbance due to migration explained from studies carried by Castle Der and Murray in 1991 indicate that the intensity differs with races and ethnic groups moving towards the same destination. In UK, it is noted that migrants from India, Pakistan and Afro-Caribbean origin showed higher rates of schizophrenia in comparison to the native, white British people (Boyle, 2010, p. 142).
