Impact of the Environment on Psychiatric Disorder by Hugh Freeman
Book DescriptionThe Impact of the Environment on Psychiatric Disorder explores the relationship between the environment and mental health, and suggests that environmental factors can play a role in the causation of psychiatric illness. Hugh Freeman and Stephen Stansfeld bring together experts from the field to discuss a range of physical and social environmental settings that are linked to psychiatric disorders. International contributors discuss topics including: * psychosocial processes linking the environment and mental health * gene-environment interactions * urban-rural differences * social support * migration * how noise affects psychiatric disorders. The book closes with a discussion of how disasters such as global warming and terrorism can affect mental health, and highlights the risks and protective factors for psychiatric disorders following such events. The Impact of the Environment on Psychiatric Disorder illuminates the wide range of ways in which it is possible for the environment to influence mental health. It will appeal to both academics and professionals, and will interest anyone concerned with connections between the environment and mental health.

When assessing "quality of life" in persons suffering from mental disorders, three dimensions have to be distinguished: subjective well-being and satisfaction; objective functioning in social roles; and environmental circumstances. Each chapter in the book takes this multidimensional approach into account.
