Contraceptives? It has been said that in nations seeking to reduce their population growth rate, a combination of sustainable economic development along with improved educational and socio-economic opportunities for women are the best “contraceptives” (i.e. ways to reduce a woman’s total fertility rate; don’t know this term? Look it up before posting). A. How does improving educational opportunities for women help reduce population growth (in those nations seeking to do so)? Cite specific scientific, demographic, socioeconomic and/or geopolitical evidence from one (1) nation that is working to reduce its population growth rate and where improving education for women has worked / is working.

Government officials could reduce adult hospital admissions, expenditure on the economy and social care provision through service user led initiative. The on-going issue remains, the marginalisation, stigma and discrimination associated with people with mental health problems (DoH, 2016). Public education has been used to reduce this stigma; through the impact strategy, the Department of Health have created an initiative to working with the voluntary sector, service users, Mental Health Media and the Royal College of Psychiatrists to educate the public better about mental illness (National Service Framework for mental health,1999). Between 1997 and 1999, the Government spent over £2.5million on mental health promotion and public information nationally (National Service Framework for mental health ,1999). It should be noted that carers are key partners who play a pivotal role in looking after service users of mental health services (Department of Health 2015, National Service Framework for mental health 1999). According to the Five Year Forward for Mental Health, the single largest cost of dealing with mental health problems is linked to the support provided by carers, with their contribution valued at over £14billion per annum. This again, reinforces the importance of carers and the need for organisations within the health and social care setting to take into consideration their best interest, needs as well as integrating their opinions and views into policies and legislations. In recent years, additional funding has been allocated by Government to provide support for carers (DoH, 2016). Although carers play a key role in the lives of service users, it can be very stressful for both the physical and mental health of the carers themselves. The Care Act 2014 applies to those carers above 18years old and replaced any previous law and provides local authorities with the responsibility “assess a carer’s needs for support, where the carer appears to have such needs” (DoH,2016). The Care Act 2014 allows local authorities to assess the needs of carers and what the impact of caring is having on them. Due to the contribution being made to the local community, most local authorities do not charge for the support provided to carers. Carers under 18years of age are supported under the Children and Families Act. Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) work on behalf of local authorities to carry out a variety of functions under the Mental Health Act (CQC,2018).
