The outline for the essay: Introduction (2 pages) – General topic area – Importance of subject – Specific scope of research interests – Explain terms – Research question Methods (1 page) – How many studies/literature are included? – Considerations of the methods related to the study – How was the data collected/analyzed? Depression (8-10 pages) – Introduction to subtopic – Data collected – Findings Suicide (8-10 pages) – Introduction to subtopic – Data collected – Findings Anxiety (8-10 pages) – Introduction to subtopic – Data collected – Findings Psychosis (8-10 pages) – Introduction to subtopic – Data collected – Findings Substance Abuse (8-10 pages) – Introduction to subtopic – Data collected – Findings Conclusion (2 pages) – Sum up the analysis between all the mental disorders and the role of spiritualty/religion mentioned above – Further studies? Additional Notes: Depending on the type of research that is available, there may not be information on some of the mental illnesses, so it is left to the writer to make that judgement. Also, if there are similarity between any of the mental illnesses that should be discussed and figures like tables, graphs should be used when needed to make information easily present. The point of this paper to come up with additional findings and the coping mechanisms that are associated with spirituality and religion that help with recovering from these mental illnesses. Significance: This is a very important paper for me because half of my grade and acceptance to another school depends heavily on how well I do on this paper. I will also help with the research process throughout and provide insights to help write the paper after I am done exams.
