Mental health and criminal justice | Crystal Dieleman | TEDxMoncton
 
08:25
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The news media focuses on tragic and violent events involving people with mental illnesses and, as a result, the public has an exaggerated view of the relationship between mental illness and violence, as well as their own personal risk of being harmed by someone who has a mental illness. But what is the reality for people with mental illnesses who become involved with the criminal justice system? If this is both a public health and public safety concern, what role do we, the general public, have in promoting mental health and preventing or reducing crime? Crystal Dieleman is an occupational therapist and assistant professor at Dalhousie University. Her passion is mental health and criminal justice. She started her career as an occupational therapist in the psychiatric treatment centers of the Correctional Service of Canada, working with men who have mental illnesses as they prepared to re-enter the community. She holds a PhD in Rehabilitation Science and works to understand the different factors that contribute to the criminalization of people with mental health problems and how to prevent or reduce their involvement in the criminal justice system as they transition from prison or forensic hospital back to community life. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Lessons from Mental Health Court:  Effective Strategies for Criminal Cases Involving Mental Illness
 
01:53:33
The Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice brings legal and sociological research, theory, and policy, together with practice to solve common problems in the field of criminal justice. Through this work, we initiate and support coordinated research and policy analysis and partner with multiple local and state jurisdictions from across the nation to provide recommendations and build links between researchers, practitioners, lawmakers, governing authorities, and the public. The Robina Institute focuses on building these connections through a variety of expertise areas in the field of criminal justice. The emphasis in all areas is on new ways of conceptualizing criminal law and its roles, and new ways of thinking about responses to crime. The Robina Institute is currently working on several research initiatives that take a close look at issues that states and jurisdictions face in sentencing policy and guidelines, including Probation Revocation; Parole Release and Revocation; Criminal History Enhancements; and Sentencing Guidelines.

Impulse Control and the Criminal Justice System
 
04:23
Video project for NSC 316 at Smith College. Transcript: We’ve all given into our impulses. We go online shopping or watched that next TV show episode instead of doing work. Maybe you’re watching this video on an impulse now. In general, we rein in these impulses to keep ourselves functioning normally and productively. Impulse control disorders, or ICDs, occur when neurological or psychological issues compromise control of impulses like these. Regrettably, sometimes they can lead sufferers to criminal behavior. Understanding how the criminal justice system deals with these disorders sheds light on the complexities interaction between mental illness and the law. In the general population, symptoms of ICDs have a 33% lifetime prevalence rate. Abnormalities in the brain’s prefrontal cortex are associated with impulse control issues. The list of recognized ICDs include Intermittent explosive disorder, which involves explosive bouts of anger, kleptomania (or urges to steal), and pyromania (fire-setting). General impulse control dysfunction can also accompanies ailments like schizophrenia, or traumatic brain injuries. When ICDs lead to criminal behavior, the concept of criminal responsibility allows mental illness to be an extenuating circumstance. Criminal Responsibility is the legal judgement that someone who committed a crime bears responsibility for it. Without this, suspects are usually not held to be guilty of the crime, even if they performed the criminal action. Different states have different standards for mental illness. 22 states use the 1962 American Law Institute standard, which finds that someone who lacks criminal responsibility is… “by reason of mental disease or defect … either unable to appreciate the wrongfulness of their behavior or unable to conform their behavior to the requirements of the law.” For the other 24 states with insanity defenses, the M’Naughten rule applies. There, individuals are off the hook if they do not “know the nature… of the act” they did, ignoring any issues of control. Finally, 4 states allow no insanity defense. Courts task forensic psychologists with determining the defendant’s mental state during the crime. They then report their findings to the court, but this evaluation can only go so far. In the end, the judge and jury decide if the defendant meets the criteria for lacking criminal responsibility. Overall, only a quarter of not guilty by reason of insanity pleas are successful. In the state of Maryland, only 11% of NGRI pleas are based on claims of lack of control, far outweighed by pleas based on lack of knowledge of right or wrong. Most often encountered, People with ADHD, manic phases, or past brain trauma are evaluated for criminal responsibility. Crimes caused just by ICDs are rare. Expanding neuroimaging use can add new dimensions to forensic evaluation. It can shed light on neurological sources of impulse control dysfunction in the brain. Still, understanding how observed brain deficits affects behavior can be difficult. Knowing whether what you see actually affect the mind is difficult to answer. Some individuals can have brain abnormalities with no apparent ill effect. Nonetheless, neuroimaging offers promise in cut and dry instances of clear neurological damage. But remember, isolated impulse control disorders aren’t usually encountered by the criminal justice system. Because the control-related behavior more commonly stems from manic phases, or ADHD-sparked impulsivity, it’s not as easy to verify the extent of dysfunction. We must also realize that however much technology we develop, we can never know the defendant’s true mental state at the time of the crime. Finding out if a defendant was truly unable to control their impulses, or simply chose to give in to them is most certainly beyond our current technological capabilities. Forensic psychologists have to do their best to find this out, and it’s not always easy. In the end, given the state of the field, it’s inevitable that for now, impulse control dysfunction causing criminal behavior will be a tough sell to explain in court.

Grant, NSW - The justice system and mental health #contributinglife
 
05:18
A Contributing Life: the 2013 National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. Feeling safe, stable and secure: The justice system and mental health. Grant's first admission to a psychiatric ward was at 14. What was originally diagnosed as ADFHD was actually very early onset schizophrenia. "Mental illness constantly stalked me from a young age... one thing led to another and at 18 I ended up in maximum security, Grant says. Grant's experience shows how the joint impact of mental illness and involvement in the criminal justice system can lead to a downward spiral. But Grant's story also demonstrates that being able to access the right support in a forensic unit of a hospital can turn a life around. "My medication stabilised me, and my progress suddenly went into overdrive. 2013 was a new year, and a new life ... I've gone from wearing tracksuit pants in a community workshop to a collared shirt in head office. "Don't let your illness rob you of the future you want," Grant says. The National Mental Health Commission has a core commitment to keeping people with lived experience at the heart of all we do. The videos from the 2013 Report Card, show us the breadth of individual experiences and the impact of mental health difficulties, beyond just the facts and figures.

Mental health diversion: A new way to get your criminal case dismissed
 
02:26
In this video, California criminal defense lawyer Karthik Krishnan discusses California's new mental health diversion program, 1001.36 PC. The program allows some defendants to get their cases dismissed by obtaining mental health treatment in lieu of jail time. Eligibility is based on being diagnosed with certain psychiatric disorders. These include Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective disorder, and Post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”). Upon successful completion of a pretrial diversion treatment program, the charges against the defendant will be dismissed. The record of the arrest will then be sealed and it will be as if the arrest had never happened.

Justice in Transition-NYC: Cops, Courts, and Corrections: Can NYC’s Justice System Help Those with Mental Illness? Nationally, there are three times as many people with serious mental illness in jails and prisons than in state psychiatric hospitals—many of them incarcerated for low-level, nonviolent offenses that result from an untreated psychiatric condition.

Historically, justice systems have been ill-equipped to address the needs of this population due to a lack of adequate treatment services coupled with poor collaboration with community-based health organizations.

Mental Health Courts and Individuals with I/DD: A Criminal Justice Solution

July 28th, 2016. Jennifer Baird, Program Manager, Mental Health Court, St. Lucie County, Florida Meghan Patton, Court Coordinator, Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Court, Cuyahoga County, Ohio Adam Stone, Criminal Defense Attorney Mental health courts were created to divert offenders away from prison into long-term community-based treatment. These courts rely on assessments, treatment plans and ongoing monitoring of behavior to address both the mental health needs of the offenders, as well as the safety needs of the community. But, are mental health courts appropriate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD)? Can they do more harm than good? Join NCCJD as we explore these questions and hear from experts in the field about this under-recognized dilemma in the criminal justice system. NCCJD will discuss the results of a recent informal survey of mental health courts serving people with I/DD, followed by Ms. Baird who will provide a historical perspective of mental health courts, and define their role and purpose in the criminal justice system. Ms. Patton will discuss how the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Court specifically addresses the needs of individuals with I/DD and the benefits of serving these individuals. Mr. Stone will address the concerns of mental health courts and whether they are adequate to serve those with I/DD.

Family Engagement in Juvenile Justice Mental Health - Making it Real

Many families whose children are involved with the juvenile justice and mental health systems want to play a more active role in their child's care but lack the system knowledge and advocacy skills to do so. At the same time, juvenile justice system staff express frustration with their inability to engage and involve family members adequately in their work and are looking for guidance on how to do a better job with this. With support from the MacArthur Foundation, the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice (NCMHJJ) has worked with a number of communities across the country through the Models for Change Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network to develop and implement model approaches aimed at empowering families, training juvenile justice staff, and modifying policies to support family involvement for justice-involved youth.

One in five veterans has symptoms of a mental health disorder – or cognitive Impairment. And research shows a link between combat-related mental illness and substance abuse. Left untreated, mental health disorders that are common among veterans, can directly lead to involvement in the criminal justice system. Actress Melissa Fitzgerald (The West Wing), Senior Director of Justice for Vets discusses an initiative that aims to transform the way veterans are handled in the criminal justice system. Fitzgerald stated, "Veterans Treatment Courts ensure that when our veterans return home and are struggling with the transition home and get into trouble with the law because of a mental-health disorder, a substance abuse disorder and/or trauma, they receive the structure, the treatment, and the mentoring they need to get their lives back on track."

01:47
July 2018: Justice Intervention: Bringing Services to Scale Air Date: July 4, 2018 The GAINS Center estimates approximately 1.1 million persons with serious mental illness are admitted annually to U.S. jails. Among these admissions, 72 percent also meet criteria for co-occurring substance use disorder. Rates of substance use disorders among prisoners are more than four times that of the general population, and 15 percent of male and 30 percent of female inmates recently admitted to jail have a serious mental illness. This show explores what services are critical to include in justice intervention, namely: treatment and recovery efforts for people in criminal and juvenile justice systems with mental and substance use disorders; family involvement; recovery support; peer counseling by people who have successfully completed drug court; problem solving court programs; and, education and training for those returning home. Panelists discuss new programs to help people before incarceration, interventions for at-risk populations, and how to improve the juvenile justice system to ensure the provision of appropriate support.

Mental Health Courts Webinar (September 21, 2015)
 
01:31:33
People with mental health conditions are disproportionately represented in America’s jails and prisons. An estimated 56 percent of state prisoners, 45 percent of federal prisoners, and 64 percent of jail inmates are reported to have a behavioral health condition. There are further disparities, such as for women and minority inmates, where the percentages with behavioral health issues are shockingly high. While the public widely perceives people with mental health and substance use conditions as dangerous, the reality is that for most who are repeatedly arrested it is for petty offenses. One widely touted solution to this problem is the expansion of specialty Mental Health Courts. Please join us for this FREE webinar that will provide information about the characteristics of effective mental health courts, and offer information about best practices from both sides of the bench. We will also explore the questions surrounding public policies that move towards an increased reliance on the judicial system solutions
