Kingdon: Agendas, Alternatives, and Public Policies

Agenda building is often the first step in your policy practice tasks. Building a solid agenda may well determine the success of the development of a policy proposal and may also determine your success in placing an issue in front of a decision maker.

For this Assignment, you evaluate the accuracy of the Kingdon model of policymaking.

To prepare: Review Chapter 6 in your text, paying special attention to the section entitled “Three Challenges in Agenda Building.”

Submit a 2- to 3-page paper evaluating the accuracy of the Kingdon model in policymaking. Address the following 3 bullet points in there entirety

Discuss the three streams Kingdon has identified where problems originate, and provide your opinion on which one most accurately reflects how and why policies come about.

Discuss the assertion that certain kinds of issues receive preferential treatment in problem solution and political streams.

Discuss tactics that policy practitioners use within each of the three streams to increase the odds that a specific issue will be placed on decision agendas.

Make sure that your assertions are supported by appropriate research and reputable resources. 7th addition APA fully cite everything and full references

explain how the policy affects the roles of psychiatric social workers in providing care for patients with mental illness.

Caring for Patients with Mental Illness

Deinstitutionalization, a multi-stage process, resulted from a shift in policy. Deinstitutionalization allowed individuals with chronic, severe mental illness to move out of state mental hospitals into community-based settings. Between 1955 and 1980, the resident population of state hospitals dropped from 559,000 to 154,000 in the United States (Koyanagi, 2007). By 1990, state hospitals began closing completely throughout the United States.

Although deinstitutionalization sought to improve care for those with mental illness, progress has been slow. Moving patients out of state institutions has placed greater burdens on family members and increased the demand for funding and resources to care for those with mental illness. A shift toward community-based care has increased the role of social workers in community mental health.

To prepare for this Discussion:

Consider trends in mental health issues and mental health care. Review this week’s resources and focus on the debate about the deinstitutionalization policy in mental health care.

Post a brief explanation of how the deinstitutionalization policy has affected inpatient psychiatric care.

Then, explain how the policy affects the roles of psychiatric social workers in providing care for patients with mental illness.

Considering the policy, explain the challenges and issues caregivers face when caring for individuals with mental illness. Identify three resources (provide name and web address) available in your local area (county or state) to support patients with mental illness and caregivers.

Explain whether these resources are adequate to meet the needs of mental illness patients and caregivers. Justify your response.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources and the current literature using appropriate APA format and style.
