‘crazy’ : the three largest hospitals in the United States are mental hospitals.

Not published in LIFE. Pilgrim State Hospital, Brentwood, NY, 1938.

Prisons in the United States, according to some estimates, and of any other people, nearly half of people with mental illness, “crazy mental illness treatment: the United States for the treatment of mental illness, the author of” the author of Alisa describes Roth said.
Alisa Roth, a journalist, says mental illness is common in American prisons and prisons, and mental illness often deteriorates because prisoners are not getting the treatment they need.
In her new book “crazy: American criminal treatment of mental illness”, Ross widely investigated the American psychiatric patients in prison, and she thought the correctional officers, the mayor of mental health is not fully trained service personnel could not afford.
“It’s very unpleasant, it’s loud, it’s claustrophobia,” she told NPR. “You see people who is very sick, I mean, I desperately ill, when I once (at the Los Angeles county jail), correctional personnel out of a man, he was strapped to a wheelchair, because his arm bleeding, he draw a piece of his own flesh. ”
On another day, she accompanied the police because they were trying to get the prisoners out for leisure or showers.
“Then they opened the little door in the cell where the food tray passed, and the smell was almost unacceptable,” rose said, “because the man had already stained the wall of the cell.”
Some believe that as many as half of the inmates suffer from some kind of mental illness, says rose, and prisons in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago are now the top three institutions that provide psychiatric care in the United States.
Some correctional institutions rejected roth’s request while studying her books. Others, including the Los Angeles county jail, also allowed her to enter – to see what was happening there.
About rose’s understanding of mental health care in the criminal justice system.
It’s easy to portray these people as monsters or other worlds, and I think we need to remember that they are real people, they just don’t get the treatment they need. Officers also have reason to worry about being dumped on them or attacked. …
Another thing that impresses me is how people feel about cycling. We discuss the private mental health care system and the criminal justice system as two separate entities. But in many cases, the two of them were walking back and forth between the two.
One day, while I was there, a man was charged in court and sent back to prison. He was tied to a restraining chair and sent from the court to the prison. I went with the officer to find him and took him back to his cell. They kept talking to him because they knew him. He had been there many times, and they kept saying, “hey, what’s going on? What happened? Before we got off the elevator, the man didn’t say anything, and then he started asking if he could return his old battery.
The lack of mental health care.
I am surprised at how difficult it is to get mental health care in this country. In Oklahoma, I visited the community clinic, the community clinic. What happens in Oklahoma is that if you have a mental illness or someone brings you into a mental illness, you get one to four points. Basically, if you are not actively committed suicide or active psychosis, you will be transferred to other forms of treatment. You’re not going to see a psychiatrist – or you’re not going to see a psychiatrist for months, months and months.
Even figuring out where to go for treatment is difficult. Once, I was here in New York with a person in and out of a mental health care system, in and out of prison and prison. I’d like to know how many people in New York City – how many psychiatrists – receive Medicaid, and how many people will accept new patients at any given time.
I spent about two days on the phone. I should add that I made these calls without worrying about losing my working hours. I’m not worried about the lack of money on my phone. I’m not worried about where I’m going to sleep that night. I’m not worried about taking medication. I’m not worried about where my next meal is coming from. I finally gave up – I went to a public hospital in the city. I went to the medicaid office; I explained to the very good clerk what I wanted to do. She handed me a piece of paper. “Well, it really depends on your Medicaid program,” she said. I forgot about five or six different choices. “You need to go online to find a psychiatrist, and then you need to call the office and see if they accept the patient,” she said.
How does she view the improvement in these issues?
One of the exciting things I found in all of these disturbing reports is that what we did was wrong, and it was a consensus. Whether we’re talking about detainees and their families, or correctional officers, prosecutors, defense lawyers, judges, doctors – your name. They agree that what we’re doing doesn’t work. It’s counterproductive. We need to change. We need to figure out how to make this change look like a consensus, but at least we’re on the same page – that’s not the way it should be, and no one is benefiting from it.
