Mental health and criminal justice | Crystal Dieleman | TEDxMoncton
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.

Inmates with Mental Illness Tell Their Stories | AVID Jail Project
The AVID Jail Project hopes that the images and stories we share will bring attention to the crisis of mental health in our criminal justice system and will humanize an issue that is all too easily ignored. As Washington’s protection and advocacy agency, DRW is in a unique position to bring recording equipment into jails to capture and share the experiences of people with disabilities. Most members of the public will never enter a jail and will have no firsthand knowledge of how inmates with mental illness fare inside our jails. Inmates who self-identify as having or who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition, or their family members, may request the AVID Jail Project’s Technical Assistance Services.

How can I win my case due to mental health?
A video detailing how you can win your case due to mental health. Visit our website for further information on mental health: https://www.sydneycriminallawyers.com.au/criminal/resources/mental-health-law/ Sydney Criminal Lawyers® are a team of experienced and highly respected Criminal and Traffic Defence Lawyers with offices located opposite Sydney's Downing Centre Court within the Sydney CBD. Don't forget to Subscribe to our Channel for more videos! Transcript: This video is called how can I win my case due to mental health. The most common way to win a criminal case, when I say 'when' I mean to have charges dismissed in a criminal case for mental health is under what's called section 32. It's section 32 of the mental health forensic provisions act 1990 and it provides various ways to have a defendant discharged that is for them not to have a criminal conviction, not to have a criminal record because of the fact that they are suffering from a mental illness, or a mental condition, or some sort of other disorder. Now the most common part of section 32 is section 32 3A, and that provides that a person can be discharged into the care of a person, so for example into the care of a psychologist so they can come under the guide of a psychologist's plan provided that they have a mental condition, and if it's more appropriate to deal with them by way of a treatment plan then otherwise in accordance with the law. So we rewind a bit here, what occurs is for example a person may be charged with an assault, some sort of an assault, which of course is a serious type of an offence. Now if the person is suffering from a mental condition, for example it might be a serious depression, or it might be serious anxiety disorder and they may react it in those circumstances, or it could be a more serious type of a condition, or categorized as more serious type of a condition, such as bipolar, or chronic schizophrenia, or something like that. Whatever the case might be if a person is suffering from a mental condition and the magistrate is persuaded that it's more appropriate to deal with them by way of a treatment plan then a person can avoid a criminal conviction and they can also avoid a finding of guilt. Now you may have heard of a section 10 dismissal or conditional release order that's when you plead guilty to an offence and the magistrate uses their discretion not to give you a criminal conviction. For a section 10 dismissal or conditional release order there's still a finding of guilt so you're still guilty of the offence, but under section 32, if the section 32 application is successful, there's not even a finding of guilt. So it's a very useful mechanism for persons who are suffering from mental conditions. So there is an incidence, there is an alleged offence, what occurs then is you might want to see a lawyer and the lawyer can arrange for what's called a psychological report, or a psychiatric report. Now that's psychological report, a psychiatric report will have some background about you, will normally have some background about the alleged incident, and it will talk about the condition that you suffer. At the end of the report though it will very very importantly set down what's called a treatment plan. It has to have a treatment plan for you to succeed in these types of matters. Now a treatment plan for example might say that you see your general practitioner and you take any medication as prescribed, that you see your psychologist on a fortnightly basis, it may talk about the fact that you need to undertake cognitive behavioural therapy or whatever it might be, it can talk about the fact that you might need to be reassessed by psychiatrist after two months time. It will have certain things in there that you need to comply with if you're dealt with under this particular section. Now treatment plants can last for up to six months, and these section 32 orders only lasts for a maximum of six months. So step one you've been charged with the offence. Step two you seen a lawyer. Step three the lawyer has arranged for a report. So you've got the report what happens then? What normally happens on the first day in court is that the matter will be for a mention a short court date. Normally you won't have the final report by that stage, and if you do often the court will want to set the matter down for a hearing of this application down the track. So it might be four weeks down the track, six weeks down the track, whatever it might be. So the first court date will normally be a mention date, the matter will be set down for a hearing of this section 32 application. When your lawyer comes before the court for this section 32 application they will normally already have served, that is given, the other side, the prosecution, which is the police or the DPP, a copy...

Judge Steven Leifman Discusses Mental Health Issues In The Criminal Justice System
The Domenici Public Policy Conference brings policy leaders together to discuss different issues that are important to New Mexico and the Nation. This year’s conference had a focus on mental health reform. Today, We hear from a Florida Judge who is working on mental health issues in the judicial system. Judge Steven Leifman is the Associate Administrative Judge of the Miami-Dade County Court Criminal Division. He says mental health issues are prominent in courtrooms around the country. “Unfortunately Judges end up seeing more people in a day with serious mental illnesses in the criminal division than most psychiatrists see in a month,” Leifman said. “And that’s a very sad reality on the state of affairs on this country, and every community in the United States is struggling with this issue. So, about 16 years ago we started a major diversion program in Miami-Dade County to see if we can keep people with serious mental illnesses from coming into the criminal system. And then when they did hit the criminal justice system how we could divert them into services so we could stop them from repeating through the system.” Leifman says the program has been a success. “We reduced our recidivism in Miami-Dade County of our misdemeanor population from 72% to 20%,” Leifman said. “It worked so well we expanded our program into our felony division. And our felony recidivism rate for people that complete the program, which is about 70% completed, is only 6%. That program alone has saved my county almost 40 years of jail bed days.” Leifman says the program saves money, and is a better way of dealing with mental health in the courts. “We were actually contributing to a public safety problem,” Leifman said. “Because people were coming out of our system still with serious illnesses, not in recovery, and they were ending up back in the system. So, if you approach this using a disease or a population health model, as opposed to a criminal justice model you get people services, they’re not going to reoffend, they’re not going to come back in the system. You’re actually foing to substantially improve your public safety.” Leifman now works with a National Organization, the Judge’s Leadership initiative. “Where we are going around the country teaching judges how to identify people in court who may be showing signs of symptoms,” Leifman said. “So, that we don’t escalate a situation in court. And then teach judges what different option there are for them to offer people who have these mental health issues. And so judges can be a big part of it. The other thing that we can do, is that we have this wonderful moral authority, and we can bring people together in a community that normally may not be talking to each other about these issues.”

Dr. Jennifer Johnson on Mental Health and the Criminal Justice System
Part of the Neil A. Weiner Research Speaker Series In 2012, Dr. Jennifer Johnson conducted a randomized controlled trial of treatment for people with major depression in two Northeastern states. Despite thousands of such trials conducted in the community, Johnson’s small trial (n= 38) was the largest trial of any depression treatment (medication or psychosocial) to be conducted in an incarcerated setting. Dr. Johnson’s talk will review results from the 2012 trial and talk about the policy context of mental healthcare in correctional settings. She will also present new results from a large randomized controlled trial conducted in these two states: an effectiveness study of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) for major depression in 180 men and women in prison. She will also discuss a potential new effort to create the Michigan Mental Health and Justice Center.

Grant, NSW - The justice system and mental health #contributinglife
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 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.

Mental Health Courts Webinar (September 21, 2015)
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

Coping through justice: Mental health and the law in Canada
“If people think that putting people with mental health in jail is a solution - that something is going to happen there and they can tackle their issues there - they’re absolutely wrong.” Flaws in Canada’s criminal justice system continue to have an impact on inmates with mental health problems. The system often becomes a “revolving door” for struggling people whose issues often fly under the Radar. 23-year-old Ritchie Laperle shares his story as someone that has gone through it all. Experts Mary Bartram and Dasa Farthing speak about what has been done, what has not been done, and what should be done, to ensure proper care before, during, and after incarceration.

Mental Health Crisis
Government fails the seriously mentally ill. DJ Jaffe, a Contributor to City Journal, tells John Stossel that New York City mental health officials focus on the wrong things. “Ask any cop what we need, he's going to say, 'we need more hospitals, easier civil commitment so that when I bring somebody they're admitted. We need to keep them on their medications so they don't deteriorate.’ But when I go to a mental health conference, they go, ‘well, we have to educate the public. We have to fight stigma.'" --------- Subscribe to my YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/johnstossel Like me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JohnStossel/ Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/johnstossel --------- NYC's government spends $230 million a year on a program for the mentally ill called, "Thrive NYC.” Mayor se Blasio appointed his wife to run it. Instead of addressing serious mental illness, Jaffe says 80% of the funding goes to much less serious problems like stigma, anxiety and loneliness. "Blurring the lines between various mild mental disorders such as anxiety or mild depression and Schizophrenia is not a bug. It's a feature of the program,” says Stephen Eide, a Contributing Editor at City Journal. "The program is supposed to do that because it believes that the only way that New Yorkers will support improvements to mental illness policy is if they are convinced that everybody has a mental illness." Jaffe says Thrive NYC’s $230 million could provide housing and basic treatment to more than half the seriously mentally ill and homeless people in the city. Instead, they dig into dumpsters and languish in jails. Eide adds, "We tend to think of ourselves as a very compassionate society. But a century from now, when people look at the situation with the seriously mentally ill, they're going to look back on us and wonder how compassionate we really were."

Screening and Assessment: Identifying Mental Health Needs for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System
A significant majority of youth who are involved with the juvenile justice system have mental health and/or substance use disorders. It is critical to identify and respond to the needs associated with these disorders as early as possible and at all critical stages of juvenile justice processing. The most effective approaches use reliable and valid screening tools to rapidly identify youth who may have significant disorders and needs, and use empirically-based assessment methods to develop an intervention plan. This presentation provides a brief overview of screening and assessment, and describes reliable tools available to identify and then assess youth with needs related to mental and substance use disorders. Strategies for effective and efficient collaboration between juvenile justice professionals and community-based behavioral health care providers to meet the needs of these youth are also discussed.
