Article IJS-2021-03 - The damage caused by fake news in the human psyche
Authors - Thamiris Gabriele Paula Silva de Souza, Danilo Barros da Silva; Eduardo Felipe Souza Silva; Lívia Caroline da Conceição Pereira; Thaliane Rafaele Silva de Melo
Abstract - Fake News is conceptualized as the dissemination of false information, with the intention of causing disorder or hurting something or someone. It can be seen that the psyche of the victims of this type of propagation is little portrayed, leaving them in oblivion; this article aims to show that there is a danger to be attacked in the face of those harmed by this fallacy, bringing real data through a questionnaire applied to an eclectic group, generating results with the help of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software and thus being able to carefully analyze all the data obtained so that it could reach a conclusive result. The feelings caused in the victims after the act of Fake News, if not treated in the proper way with proper psychological follow-up, can be aggravated by bringing bigger problems in the future, taking into account that there are several paths that the mind can resort to when one is in a moment of panic; Due to the above considerations, it is feasible that the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC) and the Unified Health System (SUS) step up the methods about all involved; going directly to the root of the problem and making people aware of the problems they can cause to others with small attitudes and offering psychological support to those who have been damaged, so that one can avoid worse problems.

When we talk about mental health and psychosocial care to people with disabilities, we find a very scarce literature, sometimes only mentioning a certain type of disability, when in fact if there is a need to have a macro, critical and sensitive look on the subject, taking into account all types of disability, whether of hereditary, congenital or acquired origin.

Abstract - Much is discussed about anxiety disorder, which has become very frequent in the life of "pre-vestibular". In this logic, in the present study, we will present anxiety disorder as a consequence of the overload and psychological pressure suffered by high school students. To this end, we conducted a search through Google Forms that is included in questions about the daily life of students and how they feel about the amount of activities, the tension of the entrance exam and in relation to the approval of society as a mediator of professions. The results presented were placed in the software Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) version 22.0, and state that most schools are not professionally prepared to deal with anxiety disorder, as well as other possible disorders developed in the adolescence phase.
