I found this journal article interesting because it focuses on alternative mental healthcare treatment approach. The article was interesting as it discussed challenges faced in understanding and treating mental healthcare. I found the information in the article useful because it highlighted that current models and theories are unable to cover the mental healthcare challenges when almost one-third of the world adult population needs some sort of mental healthcare services. It is good for us to have the knowledge of the complications of mental healthcare as we might be dealing with the related cases at one point or another. So, to sum up the article, I can say that it was made very clear that the models that are already implemented in practice such as integrated care and collaborative care are insufficient. There are problems with safety and efficacy with these traditional models to help the people needing mental healthcare. The examples of these traditional approaches are but are not limited to psychotropic medications and psychotherapeutic techniques. I was intrigued by the discussion on the alternatives methods that are being used in mental healthcare services based on the challenges of the traditional methods. Some of the examples mentioned and explained by the researchers are the use of natural products, changes in lifestyles, and mind-body techniques. As a current mental health student, I found this article to be resourceful as it elaborates on alternative mental healthcare. Integrated mental healthcare is a good way to approach in case of mental healthcare challenges.
