what are being done by the aging population about there health issues, self harm and everything involving peers?
Weegy: Self-harm occurs in all sections of the population but is more common among people who are disadvantaged in socio-economic terms and among those who are single or divorced, live alone, [ are single parents or have a severe lack of social support. Certain psychological characteristics are more common among the group of people who self-harm, including impulsivity, poor problem-solving and hopelessness. Also, people who self-harm more often have interpersonal difficulties. It is possible to apply diagnostic criteria to these characteristics. This explains why nearly one-half of those who present to an emergency department meet criteria for having a personality disorder. Although it appears that older people are less likely to self-harm, the consequences are often more serious; it has been estimated that of every five older people who self-harm one will later die by suicide (Lawrence et al., 2000; McIntosh, 1992). Consistent with this, older people who have self-harmed score highly on scales that measure suicidal intent (Merrill & Owens, 1990; Nowers, 1993) and their profile resembles that of older people who die by suicide (Dennis & Lindesay, 1995). In particular, older people who self-harm have high rates of physical ill health, social isolation and depression (Draper, 1996; Merrill & Owens, 1990; Pierce, 1977). Those with persistent depression are at particular risk of repetition of self-harm or suicide. As with any other treatment, the overarching aims are to reduce harm and improve survival while minimising the harm that may result from the treatment. In addition, the experience of treatment and care needs to be acceptable to service users and carers. This is especially so for people who self-harm and who may be suffering psychological, social or drug- and alcohol-related problems, which need further help after the immediate physical problems have been adequately addressed. It is essential that service users and carers, where appropriate, are engaged ... (More)
