بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم وَلَوْ جَعَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا أَعْجَمِيًّا لَّقَالُوا لَوْلَا فُصِّلَتْ آيَاتُهُ أَعْجَمِيٌّ وَعَرَبِيٌّ قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هُدًى وَشِفَاء وَالَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرٌ وَهُوَ عَلَيْهِمْ عَمًى ( ٤٤ ) أُوْلَئِكَ يُنَادَوْنَ مِن مَّكَانٍ بَعِيد 2 Had We sent this as a Qur’an (in the language) other than Arabic, they would have said: "Why are not its verses explained in detail? What! (a Book) not in Arabic and (a Messenger) an Arab?" Say: "It is a Guide and a Healing to those who believe; and for those who believe not, there is a deafness in their ears, and it is blindness in their (eyes); They are (as it were) being called from a place far distant!"

2 Psychiatric Disorders and Management 30
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ فَزَادَهُمُ اللّهُ مَرَضاً وَلَهُم عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْذِبُونَ In their hearts is a disease; and Allah has increased their disease; and grievous is the penalty they (incur), because they are false. Al-Baqarah (The Cow) 2:10 31
32 The Elderly and Mental Illness 1.From 15 to 25 percent of elderly people suffer from significant symptoms of mental disorders 2.Ratio of Moderate organic disorders : Severe organic mental disorders (Ratio of 2 : 1).
33 The Elderly and Suicide The highest suicide rate in America is among those aged 65 and older. In 1985, this age group represented 12 percent of the total U.S. population, but accounted for 20 percent of suicides nationwide.
34 The Elderly and Mental Illness Worldwide, elderly people lead the World Health Organization's list of new cases of mental illness: 236 elderly people per 100,000 suffer from mental illness, compared to 93 per 100,000 for those aged 45 to 64, the next younger group.
35 1.Nearly 25% of elderly persons suffer from symptoms of mental illness, 2.Only 4% of the patients in community mental health centers, 2% of the patients seen in private practitioners' offices or hospitals are elderly 3.Less than 1.5% of the direct costs for treating mental illness is spent on older people living in the community.
36 Depression (Epidemiology) 1.Most common mental disorder, afflicts up to 5% of people aged 65 and older 2.Can mimic dementia 3.About 10% of those diagnosed with dementia actually suffer from depression that, if treated, is reversible 4.More than one third of all depressed patients seen by doctors will go untreated due to misdiagnosis 5.Lifetime risk for major depression is only 7-12% in men, but a whopping 20-25% in women!
37 Depression (and Women’s Indirect Complaints) The elderly are also commonly taking many more medications than younger people are; some of these medications: Anti-inflammatory drugs Progesterone Anticancer drugs
38 Depression (and Medications of the Elderly) Usually women will not complain directly of sadness; symptoms can include, but are not limited to: 1.Alzheimer's disease 2.Cancer (including breast and ovarian) 3.Congestive heart failure 4.Parkinson's disease 5.Rheumatoid arthritis 6.Sexual dysfunction 7.Diabetes
39 Depression (Signs & Symptoms) 1.Feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, helplessness, inappropriate guilt; 2.Prolonged sadness, crying spells; 3.Jumpiness, irritability; 4.Loss of interest in and withdrawal from formerly enjoyable activities, family, friends, work or sex (anhedonia); 5.Intellectual problems: loss of memory, cannot concentrate, disorientation.
40 Depression (presentation in brief) 1.Disturbances in sleep, self-esteem, libido, appetite, interest, energy, concentration, memory, and movement 2.Feelings of guilt 3.Suicidal thoughts, plans, or attempts 4.Physical pain
41 Therapies for Depression Pharmacotherapy (anti-depressants) is fairly successful at improving the quality of life of the elderly patient. Psychotherapy is often used in combination with anti-depressants, which can include drugs in these classes:
42 Anti-Depressants (Types) 1.Heterocyclics 2.Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac 3.Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) 4.Tricyclics such as imipramine, desipramine, amitryptyline, and nortriptyline.
43 Anti-Depressants (Side-effects) (the elderly is more susceptible to) Blurred vision Dry mouth Urinary retention Confusion Constipation Drowsiness Insomnia Cardiac arrhythmia Hypotension Weight fluctuations Gastrointestinal distress Sexual dysfunction
44 Dementias 1.Characterized by confusion, memory loss, and disorientation 2.Only 15% of older Americans suffer from this condition (of that number, an estimated 60% suffer from Alzheimer's disease, a progressive mental deterioration for which no cause or cure has been found) 3.Alzheimer's being the most prevalent type (degeneration can last from 5 to 20 years).
45 Dementias (Causes) About 40% of all dementias can be caused by complications of chronic high blood pressure, blood vessel disease or a previous stroke. Deterioration is in steps rather than in a steady progression.
47 Sometimes medications are used to treat symptoms that are secondary to dementia, such as sleep disruption, depression, and aggressive behaviors. These medications are only treating the symptoms that arise out of the underlying dementia, and do not treat the dementia itself.
48 Dementia (and Parkinson’s) Parkinson's disease, which generally begins with involuntary and small tremors or problems with voluntary movements. Dementia may occur when the disease is severe or very advanced.
49 Dementia (and Huntington’s) Huntington's disease, a genetic disorder that begins in middle age and has symptoms of changed personality, mental decline, psychosis and movement disturbance.
50 Dementia and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, thought to be caused by a viral infection leading to rapid and progressive dementia.
51 Delirium Elderly patients, and especially women, are extremely sensitive to things such as surgery and anesthesia, drug toxicity, and infections like urinary tract infections (especially in women). The symptoms of delirium are often misdiagnosed as relating to other conditions. Symptoms can be reduced with Haloperidol.
52 Delirium (common symptoms) EEG shows a slowing of activity in the brain 1.Disturbed consciousness 2.Sudden reduced ability to focus, sustain, or shift attention 3.Sudden onset of misperceptions 4.Impaired judgement 5.Increased or decreased motor activity
53 Psychosis 1.Schizophrenia is a group of mental disorders that involve disturbances of thinking, mood, and behaviour 2.Bipolar disorders involve periods of depression followed by periods of mania (accompanied by grandiosity, lack of sleep, and excessive activity) 3.Elderly patients who are diagnosed with psychosis may also experience delirium or dementia, so these conditions must be treated in addition to the psychosis.
54 Schizophrenia 1.Only 3% of patients with schizophrenia experience their first symptoms in their sixties or after 2.The treatment of schizophrenia for elderly patients is largely the same as in other schizophrenic patients 3.Minor differences in treatment are the necessity to treat depression that often results in elderly patients as a result of psychosis.

61 أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَا أَوْ آذَانٌ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُور ِ Do they not travel through the land, so that their hearts gain understanding and causing their ears to hear? Truly it is not their eyes that are blind, but blind have become their hearts which are in the breasts. Al-Haj (The Pilgrimage) 22:46
