Mental Health As A Crime

I am aware that there is a disconnect between the systems that determine guilt and punishment, and the systems that would be needed to remediate the failed aspects of a person’s makeup that allow criminal behavior.

    “The fact that the only system we have in place to determine who might need extra help in being socialized is the system that investigates crime and the only system we have in place that remediates those same people after they are determined to need help is the criminal correctional system means that we still do not get the needs and the problems of people with social and mental health issues.

    And that makes me sad.”

    Me, too.
