Medical and allied health professionals help us to have an overall wellness. They have their own specialization for different concerns of our body. They can be found in schools, universities, private practice, care homes, mental health centers, community health centers, and hospitals among others.
It is hard to imagine life without them because they help us become healthy and they help us recover from our illnesses or injuries too.
The answer is letter B. Health Education
In our country, the Philippines, i believe that these professions are needed in the community, school and country.Nurses PsychiatristBehavioral Counselors
Considering the decreasing number of health professionals such as nurses, it is very important to employ more of their kind of profession in the health care sector of our government. The lack of government support slowly pushed our nurses to work abroad and serve for the other country. The lack of security of tenure rapidly increased the number of nurses going out of the country leaving our country with few numbers of nurses. The few number of them left, are the ones who are serving the hospitals with a big ratio of patients to take care of. This issue has been addressed but was never been resolved.
Second to the list is the psychiatrist. Though the government had already increase the budget for mental health, still our country lacks enough psychiatrist to cater to the mental health of the general public. In fact, there is only 2 or 3 psychiatrists working in each province (not mentioning the ones having private practice). With the rising need of mental difficulties, this professionals must be present to help the challenged citizens gain back their psychological well-being.
Third in the list is the behavioral counselors. As technology progresses and as the number of broken homes and dysfunctional family increases, a lot of behavioral concerns in our country (especially the teen-agers and young adults) are occurring. Also, considering the cases of internet addiction, substance addiction, anxiety and depression, developmental disorders and personality disorders among common age group, it is right and fitting to have enough number of behavioral counselors to suffice the need.
