Default Mental health reforms made things worse, psychologist says


The focus on therapeutic diversion units in reports to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Justice and Public Safety, self-described “advocates” for inmates, the public, and the news media has diverted attention from the full extent of the scandal of “mental health reform,” which will outrage every one of your constituents when the details are revealed. In simple terms, those who lean toward the political left will be outraged to learn that the state of mental health treatment has declined as “reform” is ballyhooed. Those who lean toward the political right will be outraged to learn how mental health “reform” enables the gangs who have taken over some prisons to operate without fear of consequences. And every voter will be outraged when they learn that the $12 million allocated for mental health reform has not been spent as promised, yet the prisons and advocates are demanding more money from the taxpayers.
No need for diplomacy, Dr. Schwade, tell us what you really think.

Once, when an “M2” inmate refused to speak with a social worker, this note was entered into the medical record: “I did observe that the inmate was breathing.” That’s not treatment, but to those concerned only with the number of inmates designated as M3 or M2, it counts as treatment.
