Did Isaac newton suffer a mental disorder?
Yes, Isaac Newton had indeed suffered from a mental illness. He was a great mathematician of the 17th century and had been diagnosed with and suffered from nervous breakdowns, some say bipolar disorder, and perhaps anxiety problems. There are many famous roles in our past that have suffered from mental illnesses. One is Vincent Van Gogh who had suffered from clinical/manic (I forget which) depression and bipolar disorder. That doesn't make them different from others, though. They're all the same. Just a little bit more creative. ;)

Was there any other mental disorders that the soldiers suffered from during and after the Vietnam War?
Bad news sell's more newspapers than good news does. And the news media (during the war) highly exaggerated GI casualties from those disorders. See: (GEN Westmoreland's) Stati…stics from the Vietnam War (Recommended by the History Channel).. Beginning in WWI (1917-1918, when the US entered WWI) the US military began testing recruits. During the Viet War, inductees-had "US" stamped on their dog tags (Conscripts, Draftees) & "RA's" (Regular Army volunteers), had to be physically examined from head to foot, even a chest X-Ray, eye test, color blind tests, mental IQ test (written GT test); then 8 weeks of boot camp (basic combat infantryman's training). Together, all of this, would normally weed out any non-qualified men.. However, living with their own brethren 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, month after month, gave more strength, and built more confidence in the new recruit, than any other formalized type of education/training (mental) could ever have done. In SOME cases, some of these men never had a father, or brother, or family...now the military had become HIS FAMILY.. This is why, when on the battlefield; a GI doesn't fight for flag & country, like civilians love to believe. He's fighting the enemy so that he does NOT let his brothers down. And sometimes, he will risk his life to save his buddies, which in war (actually on the battlefield) is really his FAMILY.

A mental illness is illness within the bounds of mental health that is clinically recognisable by symptoms and behaviours. Mental illnesses disrupt normal functioning of the p…erson either cognitively, emotionally, biologically, etc. This includes such illnesses as depression, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating), obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders (anti-social personality, borderline personality, etc.), psychotic disorders, trichotillomania (recurrent pulling of hair), psychological sexual disorders, etc. There are far too many to mention all of them. Diagnosis is usually made by guidelines set out by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-IV (IV because it is the 4th edition of the publication), published by the American Psychiatric Association in 1994. An updated version of the manual, DSM-IV-TR (TR for text revision), was published in 2000. Initial diagnosis of a mental illness may be made by a medical practioner who may recommend medication or refer the patient to a psychologist or psychiatrist, depending on the illness diagnosed.
Which mental health professional uses a variety of methods to diagnose and prescribe medications for people suffering symptoms of mental disorders?
That really is quite a loaded question, as there are actually three... depending upon the state in which you live. The first and most common is the psychiatrist. This individ…ual is a medical doctor who diagnoses and treats mental disorders primarily with psychotropic medications. The second most widely recognized is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. This individual is a registered nurse with a master degree in nursing and advanced training in the assessment and treatment of mental illness. In most states, an NP can prescribe medications. The third and least commonly encountered is a prescribing psychologist. A psychologist as an individual with a doctorate in psychology who has been licensed by a state. To be eligible to prescribe medications he or she has to complete a variety of requirements, usually including a master degree in psychopharmacology and an internship of 100+ cases supervised by a psychiatrist. It's important to note that as of right now, most states do not license prescribing psychologists.
