RE: Discussion – Week 7

Many health-care policies have been proposed in the last five years. The Defending Access to Mental Health Care Act is one proposed policy. The purpose of this proposal is to ensure loan repayments and adequate staffing for inpatient pediatric mental health facilities (Congress, 2019). The reason for this proposal is that there are not enough healthcare providers working in the field of pediatric mental health. Children are going untreated because these facilities lack adequate staff and the ability to make loan payments for an inpatient mental health facility. This proposed policy, I believe, is supported by sufficient evidence. In the United States, up to 20% of children meet the criteria for a mental health disorder (Bardach et al, 2018). With such a large number of patients, more staff with proper training is required to care for them. Up to 10% of pediatric hospital patients have a primary diagnosis of a mental health condition, but the quality of care provided to these patients is unknown (Bardach et al, 2018). Having an adequate number of staff who are properly trained in pediatric mental health will improve both staff and patient safety, as well as patient care in these facilities (O’Connor, 2017). The Defending Access to Mental Health Care Act will allow struggling youth to receive the care they require by allowing them to pay for access to care and having adequate staffing in the facility.

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.

Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
