TASK 1- ESSAYQ1) Impact of socio-economic influences on health and barriers to accessing healthcare (1.1, 1.3)Impact of socio-economic influencesHealth is a state of well being which denotes that a person doesn't experience any sort ofphysical, emotional or mental disorientation. However, there are several factors or influentialcomponents which directly impact the health of a person (Batterham and et. al., 2016). Theseinclude psychological set-up, societal status, economic capabilities, environmental risks andphysical state of health. A group of elements that are enclosed under social determinants likeemployment, childhood, education, family background, cultural ideologies, etc. are alsoresponsible in affecting the health of an individual. The impact of these socio-economicinfluences on health is diverse and depends on the intensity with which a person is suffering(Baum and Fisher, 2014).The state of employment and income level helps in achieving some sort of economicstability in the environment. For instance, a person who has lower level job in a small firm willbe less capable of spending on leisure activities or luxury goods. On the other hand, a personwho is an entrepreneur and running a successful business shall be more capable. This reflectsthat the lack of income or economic stability often gives rise to stress and anxiety for a person.There are situations in the past or present which are quite disturbing and contributing todeviation of concentration from healthy state of mind. Negative experiences and bad influencesresult in psychological disturbances (Bauman and Nutbeam, 2013). The inability of a person todeal with psychological barriers often results in anxiety and depression.An individual will be able to promote health only when their willingness to lead a goodand healthy life is dominant enough. Despite of a good position at workplace and efficient accessto resources, individuals are more often stressed and worried (Cragg, 2013). This influence canbe due to no proper social contact or dilution in relations with family, friends and relatives.Furthermore, a person who is from ethnic minority or a social background which is not wellaccepted in the society and community, faces certain negative influence over health. Theprevalence of discriminatory systems like oppression, racism, ill-treatment, etc. are source ofmental and emotional abuse. They adversely affect the health of a person who undergoes suchexperiences while sustaining in the society (Edelman, Mandle and Kudzma, 2013).1
