LONELINESS AND DEPRESSION I NTHE ELDERLY: THE ROLE OF SOCIAL NETWORK

This article studies the relation between loneliness and depression and the social network in the elderly. It’s analyzed trough choosing some adults of more tan 50 years old, measuring the loneliness with UCLA scale, social network features using Berkman-Syme index, and depression with CIDI. The results explain us that loneliness feelings were more prevalent in women  (50-65) years old, who are single, separated or divorced, living in a rural setting with a lower frequency of social media interactions- In depressed people, the feeling of loneliness was associated with having a small social network without a lot of interactions. Due this we can say that size of interactions in social networks can benefit  to reduce the prevalence of depression and loneliness in Spanish older adults.

The analysis is trough building predictive models, which uses features that have been extracted form social media data. With this analysis suggest that depression and other mental illnesses are detectable on several online environments.

 

SUMMARY

After reading and analyzing this articles we can see that  social media can affects negatively  specially in people who uknown this online environment, like older people, but undoubtedly help people facilitating social integration and communication for example during the COVID-19 crisis when the people were lockdown.

The most positive thing about the social media is the opportunity that it gives us to detect mental issues of the rest of the people, as the last article said because not all the mental issues are diagnosed.

 

CONCLUSION

In conclusion the social media provides us more positive things than negative, but it depends of the correct use of the people. It’s a very difficult subject for older people because they are a 21st century invention, and not everyone have born and grow up with them. But even so, the first article can confirm us that helps a little bit whit the communication of the old people who are in a rural environment and lives alone.

COM AFECTEN LES REDS SOCIALS A LA NOSTRA SALUT MENTAL.

Segons diversos estudis, cal afirmar que si que hi ha una gran influència entre la salut mental de les xiquetes i els xiquets, les reds socials que poden utilitzar i els transtorns de comportament que poden tindre, és per això que hi ha una forta associació entre: la salud mental dels pares i les mares amb les reds socials que ells i elles puguen utilitzar, la salut mental dels pares i mares amb els possibles trastorns de comportament que les seues xiquetes i els seus xiquets puguen patir, i les reds socials que les mares i els pares utilitzen amb els trastorns de comportament que tenen els seus fills i filles. De la mateixa manera s’ha comporvat que no hi ha cap associació entre la salut mental dels pares i les reds socials que utilitzen els seus fills i filles, ja que no tenen res a veure.
La salut mental i el procediment per a tindre cura d’aquesta, deu veure’s com un procés compartit en el que es veuen implicats diverses persones: els mateixos pacients, els familiars d’aquests i aquestes i els professionals que els tracten. És per això que és molt important que un pacient hi participe en aquest procés, abans descrit, si té o ha tingut qualsevol problema degut a les reds socials; i que per tant es pose en mans d’un procés de tractament psiquiàtric o psicològic segons la seua gravetat. Com ja hem dit abans, el procés de cura de la salut mental ha de veure’s com un porcés compartit entre els 3 actors i actrius que hem descrit anteriorment ja que moltes vegades, si un pacient s’ha vist o es veu sol, sense ninguna persona que l’ajude o que li done suport (psicologa o psiquiatra), pot arribar a pensar (depenent del seu grau de gravetat) que està sent realment una càrrega per a la seua familia o per a les persones que l’envolten i aleshores sentir-se encara pijor.

És per això que les polítiques de dalut pública i mental, han d’atendre la qualitat de vida de tot tipus de pacients de salut mental en la societat en general en la que estem inmerosos qusi al complet en les noves tecnologies i en les reds socials, entre altres.
