The text claims the correctional officers have other needs and the article says the system needs further improvement to fully meet the needs of the mentally ill. It would seem that regardless of if it is a systematic issue that needs to be resolved or a change that needs to happen on a personnel level, both sources clearly state there needs to be changes in effect in order to house these types of inmates properly and
However minority groups having are more likely to fall victim because they are targeted. Challenges facing Amnesty International in the fight against torture are as follow. Firstly authorities committing these crimes withheld information from public and hold detainees for so long that they can even come out and share their stories. Some detention centers deny access to the outside world; such detention is also known as incommunicado detention center, to facilitate all sorts of degrading treatment or even torture without anyone being able to hear victim's stories. Another issue is government refusal to pass laws prohibiting torture and in some countries that such law was passed, they are not been
Anna Quindlen in the article, “The C Word in the Hallway” argues that mental illness don’t get enough awareness or help that it actually needs. Quindlen supports her argument by using similes, tone and bias’ to state that many teachers are not trained to recognize mental illness and so some just dismiss it and so that leaves “over two thirds of the mentally disturbed children without any help”. Insurance also does not aid in covering the costs because “health insurance plans do not provide coverage for necessary treatment”, or if they do then they think that they should “penalize those who need a psychiatrist instead of an oncologist”. The author's purpose in writing this was to inform people about the scary reality that many kids and teens face today and to argue that it is nothing to joke about and that it needs to be taken seriously. The author writes in a formal tone for parents, teens, and other adults to be aware of the seriousness of mental illness in teenagers.
Another cause of tension is special problem detainees. One of the problems they face is withdrawal from substance abuse. Many drugs form a dependence within the person that when they go without they hurt mentally and physically. This may cause lashing out and violence towards others because their mind is not clear. Drugs alter a person’s mental state making them react to situations in ways normally they would not.
There are so many mentally ill people in correctional facilities because most families do not know how to help their loves ones who suffer from a mental illness, so the call the police for help. Majority of the police officers do not know what to do or how to handle people with a mental illness disease. Police officers who are not trained to deal with the mentally ill often do not recognize that person is ill. Some police officers do not recognize if the individual should or not go to jail or a treatment center or medical facility. The impact of law enforcement and the judicial system dealing with people with a mental illness is to assist the inmates with the help they need.
In this particular case involving Roy Lee Ward, there were three aggravating factors: rape, on probation/parole, and torture/mutilation. There were also mitigations. Some of the mitigations in this case were: mental retardation, low intelligence, parents were divorced, and exhibitionism disorder. These mitigations did not work on lessening his sentence or taking him off of death row, but in many cases, if people are intellectually disabled or have an IQ under 70, they cannot receive the death
Also, people do not share the same empathy for non-physical abuse, because it is so common it has become a “normal” thing in society that is ignored (Source). Everyone, at some point, has experienced emotional trauma or turmoil so it is difficult for some to see it as a way of abusing that is really out or the ordinary or worth recognition. CLOSING/TRANSITION SENTENCE… To identify their effects on a child it is important to first analyze the types of abuse. Emotional abuse, neglect, and domestic violence are the few main types. A
Colonists did not want these patients surrounding them and hospitals and asylums allowed for these patients to no longer be bothered by those who thought that they were complete maniacs. This allowed for a better environment, but at the same time other states did not want to create other asylums
Although, there have been advances in current treatment options, they are unlikely to have a broad effect and rather they’re just localized. The issued with psychotherapy is the mode of delivery, in order to for it to be effective it is delivered to one person at a time by a trained health professional. Once again, the issue that arises in globalizing this type of treatment is that it is narrow and does not allow for a broader adaption and still be considered effective. Treatment that has the capability to be applied in a larger sense, needs to reduce the burden of mental illness. Psychological interventions are meant to reduce the burden of mental illness at the personal level, but the potential for being applied at a larger scale can reduce the burden of mental illness at a societal level.
