Topic: Health & Wellness / Approaching and managing offenders with mental disorders

Hi, I am not familiar with your laws but I live hear in Pa. They don’t seem to take mental illness to seriously. A very good friend of mine lost her brother here, they didn’t seem to take his mental illness seriously. The family kept asking him if they had given him his medication, well they did a toxic screen on him. No antidepressants, to say the least he committed suicide in his cell. If there is NO training in handling people how have mental illness, people just seem to overlook these issues. I do believe not only personnel who have to deal with these people should have the proper training, same goes for the arresting officer or officer(s). It seems that people are becoming more and more aware of this factor. But I do believe that more research has to be done. I am now studying Criminalistics I do believe these types of things need to be further inverstigated. But I do like the question though.
