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.

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 section 10, 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 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 of this report. They normally also will have filed a copy of that report in court. So it's the day of the hearing what happens then normally is that the magistrates will read the reports when they're on the bench...

For the mentally ill in Chicago, the effects of this inadequacy are felt on a magnified scale, as budget cuts and a lack of community-based mental health resources have left these individuals with minimal support. More often than not, this means being repeatedly swept up into the criminal justice system for low-level, non-violent crimes VICE News takes an immersive look at this issue by going inside the Cook County Jail and speaking with community members on Chicago's south side.

Use of Mental Health Evidence when the Insanity Defense is not relied upon
For more information on mental health issues in the criminal justice system visit http://www.insanitydefenseattorney.com Texas state courts have held that diminshed capacity is not an affirmative defense: the only time mental illness can be presented to a jury as a defense is when the individual pleads insanity. However, there is a line of cases in which the prosecution's burden of proof has been defeated by proof of mental illness. The judge does have discretion to allow proof of mental illness to be introduced into a case. In this video Houston, Texas criminal attorney George Parnham explores the possibilities of introducing mental health issues into the guilt or innocence phase of the trial when the insanity plea is not relied upon.

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.

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.

An insider’s plan for rehabilitating the juvenile justice system | Jeff Wallace | TEDxNaperville
Juveniles committing crimes sometime get treated like adults in the penile system. Sometimes this seems logical and the “right thing to do”. But is it? Jeff Wallace takes you through what happens when you treat a juvenile like an adult in this riveting personal story. Jeff has spent most of his life studying the effects of the policy and procedures followed by the criminal justice system on at-risk youth – first, as one of those youths and then, through his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Criminal Justice. At work, he’s a Group Care Manager who guides a team at a non-profit organization, working to strengthen children, families and individuals by providing quality services that engage community resources to create effective solutions. He is also a Youth Counselor at a county detention center in Iowa and a Crisis Interventionist for the Davenport police department and local hospitals. He is driven to change the way youthful offenders are sentenced, so there will be more cases of these youngsters being able to find their true path in life. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

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

Broadmoor - Inside Britain's Highest Security Psychiatric Hospital - The Documentery
“Patients that come here, they will have perpetrated often horrendous crimes but they are also victims and it’s very easy to see somebody as either the perpetrator or the victim. It’s much more difficult to understand that somebody might be both.” Dr Amlan Basu, Clinical Director. Broadmoor, the most famous high secure hospital in the world, has allowed unprecedented access to television cameras for this new two-part ITV documentary. For the first time in its 150 year history, the viewing public will see the innermost parts of this iconic institution in this two part series. The hospital in Berkshire, often mistaken for a prison, helps treat severely mentally disordered patients many of whom are violent offenders. It’s best known for its high profile patients such as Charles Bronson, Ronnie Kray, Peter Sutcliffe and Kenneth Erskine. Filmed over the course of a year, with extensive access to the hospital, the programmes paint a picture of life inside Broadmoor for both staff and patients. It’s the first time that patients have been allowed to tell their stories themselves and cameras follow patients while they meet psychiatrists, open up about their violent backgrounds, visit the hospital shop and participate in workshops. In the first programme, cameras are present when one patient refuses medication and it has to be forcibly administered. Another patient with a history of violence on the intensive care ward refuses to return to his room and has to be physically restrained and moved by staff. In one interview, a patient reveals he has never been able to articulate the details of his violent offence and another man speaks about his frighteningly abusive childhood during a session with his psychiatrist. Interviews with staff reveal that on high dependency wards violent incidents occur every other day. For patients in Broadmoor there is no fixed term for their stay so although it is hard to be committed there, it is even harder to get out. 35% of men come from prison, 35% from the court system, 25% from medium secure psychiatric units and 5% from other high-secure hospitals. In the second programme, a patient describes his life as ‘satanic’ and shares details of his neglected and abusive childhood, and another patient who has spent over a decade in Broadmoor is considered finally well enough to leave. Cameras follow patients taking part in a group drugs counselling session and capture staff taking part in riot training. For many people, Broadmoor is seen as a place to house the country’s most violent criminals but one of its roles it to try to rehabilitate patients.

Justice in Transition-NYC: Can NYC's Justice System Help Those with Mental Illness? (trailer)
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. 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. This briefing—held at the Vera Institute of Justice on March 12, 2014, with community and government leaders—examines how the Affordable Care Act and promising new initiatives may help abate this crisis. Panelists: Steve Coe Chief Executive Officer, Community Access Judge Matthew D'Emic Brooklyn Mental Health Court Jim Parsons Director of the Substance Use and Mental Health Program, Vera Institute of Justice Homer Venters, MD Assistant Commissioner of Correctional Health Services, NYC Department of Health and Mental Health Moderated by: Robert Lewis Reporter, WNYC Watch the full video briefing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzFCfJFHLXo For more information about Vera's Justice in Transition-NYC briefing series, please visit: http://www.vera.org/justice-transition-nyc The Vera Institute of Justice is a nonprofit that has worked for more than five decades to transform justice systems.

Nashville Sheriff Expresses Frustration Over Guns And Mental Health Problems
Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall expressed frustration about the number of guns and the criminal justice system's handling of mentally ill people while talking about the man accused of murdering four people and injuring several others at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, on Sunday. Travis Reinking, 29, was booked on murder charges Monday night and is being held at the Maximum Correctional Center in South Nashville. A Nashville judge on Tuesday issued an order revoking his $2 million bond. Reinking is being housed alone in the facility while he is under a 72-hour medical observation, Hall said during a press conference Tuesday, which suggested that the suspect was under suicide watch. https://www.buzzfeed.com/tasneemnashrulla/nashville-sheriff-waffle-house-shooting-too-many-guns?utm_term=4ldqpia http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

OverCriminalized • Alternatives to Incarceration • FULL DOCUMENTARY • BRAVE NEW FILMS
OverCriminalized profiles three promising and less expensive alternatives to incarceration that may actually change the course of people’s lives. It’s time to roll back mass criminalization and focus on what works. SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=bravenewfilms SIGN THE PETITION: http://www.bravenewfilms.org/endhomelesshate HOST A FREE SCREENING: http://bravenewfilms.org/screenings It seems that for almost every social problem that pops up, we turn to the criminal justice system. Suffering from mental illness? Here’s a cell. Struggling with drug dependency? Let’s throw you in handcuffs. Sleeping on the street? Here’s an arrest record. And if you are a person of color, the criminal justice crackdown can be even worse. How could it possibly make sense to saddle police officers and prison wardens with sole responsibility for helping people get a roof over their head? Or to task lawyers and judges with treating mental illness or helping people get sober? Simply making problems into “crimes” is just making things worse. It’s 2015. We know better. Not only is all of this inhumane, it’s expensive. When our tax dollars are picking up the tab, it makes sense to put funds where they will make the biggest impact. Housing programs help solve homelessness. Treatment helps stabilize mental illness and end drug dependency. Arrests and jail cells just waste time and money. It’s simple. Diversion programs work better than incarceration – for everyone. In cities like Seattle, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City, we see that successful solutions are a viable option to help end serious social problems. These services alter the course of people’s lives in a positive way and save taxpayers huge amounts of money. We cannot continue to isolate and imprison people who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or homelessness. We must treat them with compassion and care to better serve our communities and our pocketbooks. It's time we got serious about pulling our money out of incarceration and putting it into systems that foster healthy communities. Hundreds of thousands of people are locked up not because of any dangerous behavior, but because of problems like mental illness, substance use disorders, and homelessness, which should be dealt with outside the criminal justice system. Services like drug treatment and affordable housing cost less and can have a better record of success. This summer, news stories from around the nation provided the American people with a litany of issues about how police officers respond to community members. By highlighting programs like Crisis Intervention Training (CIT), Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD), and Housing First, OverCriminalized explores the possibility of ending incarceration for millions of Americans who, through successful intervention programs, can put their lives back on track. OverCriminalized focuses on the people who find themselves being trafficked through this nation’s criminal justice system with little regard for their humanity and zero prospects for actual justice. They are victims of unwillingness to invest in solving major social problems, and the consequent handling off of that responsibility to the police, the courts, and the prisons. They are the mentally ill, the homeless, and the drug addicted. Sometimes they are all three. HOST A FREE SCREENING or HOUSE PARTY: http://bravenewfilms.org/screenings Quick facts on over criminalization: • Approximately 20 % of state prisoners and 21 % of local jail detainees have a “recent history” of a mental health condition. • Approximately 26% of homeless adults staying in shelters live with serious mental illness and an estimated 46% live with severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders. • In 2012, it was estimated that 23.1 million Americans needed treatment for problems that related to drugs or alcohol. • Pew Research finds that 67% of Americans say that the government should focus more on providing treatment for those who use illegal drugs such as heroin or cocaine. Just 26% think the government’s focus should be on prosecuting users of such hard drugs. http://www.bravenewfilms.org/overcriminalized ABOUT BRAVE NEW FILMS Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films are at the forefront of the fight to create a just America.
