    Is it true that BPD is considered in the same category as Sociopathic and psychopathy, therefore according to law – no insane plea may be made, where as organic brain disease does aallow for an insane plea?

    Hi,

    I feel strongly, that the above mentioned topic, “Mental Health Court: The Future,” can work more for the good than not!!! BPD folks, as can all folks, at certain times, make less than stellar, moral implicating type(s) of, decisions! Having a more INTELLIGENT, caring, court system, may allow/permit better outcomes for ALL concerned!

    Regards,

    Has it ever occurred to you just how dangerous it is to lock people up as a “preventative measure” to keep them from *possibly* committing a crime? I was not aware that bearing a psychiatric label and being too poor to afford a home automatically translates into “dangerousness” that warrants incarceration, forced drugging, and the other horrors of the mental health system. That anyone could consider such gross violations of human and civil rights “help” is beyond me– and frankly, it scares the hell out of me.
