Unit 8 Discussion one


For this discussion, complete the following:


  • Choose a diagnosis from the DSM-5 (website is above), and research its typical signs and symptoms. You do not need to provide this specific information, but do list your reference at the end of the post.
  • Offer details of a mental status examination that might fit for a person with this diagnosis. For example, a person with a sleep disorder could be expected to be less alert than others and perhaps to have some irritability of mood.
  • Write a 1–2-paragraph client description that portrays the client who has the diagnosis, using information from your research.
  • Provide a mental status examination, which should be about a paragraph or two in length, covering all of the relevant categories in the checklist provided in this unit’s introduction.
