Analyze the factors (both genetic and environmental) contributing to the development of a specific mental disorder (of your choice) and discuss steps that could be taken to reduce the incidence of that disorder. Be sure to focus on prevention, not treatment.
Weegy: Based on our current knowledge of genetics and schizophrenia, no one gene causes the brain disorder on its own. Many of the common risk genes for schizophrenia are seen in healthy people, and they never develop the disorder. [ Researchers believe that this is because schizophrenia requires complex combinations of genes. But even with all the appropriate genetic risk factors, many (if not most) people may still not develop the disorder. This has lead to the examination of other influences besides genes, and their role in producing schizophrenia. Scientists commonly refer to this combination of genetic and other influences as the “nature vs. nurture” debate. Nature being the genes you were born with, and nurture being every external influence in your environment from conception onward. The theory on how the genetic susceptibility for schizophrenia combines with environmental stressors to result in a person developing schizophrenia is known as the predisposition/stress model, or diathesis-stress model). Scientists agree that both nature and nurture have a significant role in the development of schizophrenia, but how exactly they interact, or to what degree is not completely understood. ] (More)

Discuss how schizophrenia mental disorder might be treated using at least two of the treatments. Provide specific examples to support your response.
Weegy: While there are a number of helpful treatments available, medication remains the cornerstone of treatment for people with schizophrenia. [ These medications are often referred to as antipsychotics since they help decrease the intensity of psychotic symptoms. Many health-care professionals prescribe one of these medications, sometimes in combination of one or more other psychiatric medications, in order to maximize the benefit for the person with schizophrenia.....Antidepressant medications are the primary medical treatment for the depression that can often accompany schizophrenia. Examples of antidepressants that are commonly prescribed for that purpose include serotonergic (SSRI) medications that affect serotonin levels like fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil), citalopram (Celexa), and escitalopram (Lexapro); combination serotonergic/adrenergic medications (SNRIs) like venlafaxine (Effexor) and duloxetine (Cymbalta), as well as bupropion (Wellbutrin), which is a dopaminergic (affecting dopamine levels) antidepressant medication. Despite its stigmatized history, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) can be a viable treatment for people whose schizophrenia has inadequately responded to a number of medication trials and psychosocial interventions. ] (More)
