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. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Judge Steven Leifman Discusses Mental Health Issues In The Criminal Justice System
 
02:20
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.”

Mental Health Laws Used to Silence Critic

Mental Health Laws Used to Silence Critic Pennsylvania powerbrokers abuse legal system to lock up political opponent A law on the books in the Keystone State intended to apply to individuals with mental illness is now being used for a more sinister purpose: to involuntarily commit political opponents who pose a threat to the established power structure in the commonwealth’s capital. Andrew J. Ostrowski, a former Pennsylvania civil rights attorney, found himself in the sights of the powers-that-be in Harrisburg, and learned the hard way how the 1976 Mental Health Procedures Act (MHPA) is being used to chill criticism of the power prism. https://www.americanfreepress.net/amember/signup SUBSCRIBE TO THE FREE AMERICAN FREE PRESS NEWSLETTER http://americanfreepress.net/afp-enewsletter/ -- Share With 20 People -- http://www.americanfreepress.net -- https://www.youtube.com/user/afpsupporter -- http://shop.americanfreepress.net SUBSCRIBE TO AMERICAN FREE PRESS http://americanfreepress.net/?page_id=6 Like AFP on FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/americanfreepress Visit http://shop.americanfreepress.net/ to get books and information not available elsewhere.

Mental Health Crisis
 
08:24
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."

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

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.

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.

People with mental illness do not fare well in correctional facilities, where they are more likely to be victimized and housed in solitary confinement. 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.
