    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDF45 starsI recently read and reviewed a book similar to this one about America's incarceration of large numbers of mentally ill individuals Insane America's Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness by Alisa Roth My review this book 'Crazy A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness' Pete Earley writes about different prisons than Roth but the basic story is similar People with mental problems such as bipolar disorder schizophrenia schizoaffective disorder depression etc can't or don't or won't get appropriate treatments and end up in jail sometimes for relatively

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFWhen I heard that my city was going to read this book One Book One Community gosh I got all excited People with chronic mental illness suffer so much and are so poorly understood and their options are so pitifully few I thought Earley's book would be a great way for people to learn about the problems they face Unfortunately I was less than a chapter in before I wanted to take Pete Earley and shake him until his teeth rattled Basically Earley's problem is this he

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFA sad sad investigation into the mental health system that is charged with serving one of the most destitute populations in the United States the mentally ill He brings a nice mixture of historical context personal story and investigative journalism together to create a powerful narrative I am both personally and professionally interested in the topic since I am a Clinical Social Worker that works with the population he targets in the book One note he is a big proponent of providing treatment to mentally ill people even against their will when they are psychotic because they are not thinking clearly and will benefit from the decision in the long run While I love the book this does a slight disservice to the people who actually have to deci

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFFor such a keenly personal story Earley's writing is very dry and not compelling He is first and foremost a journalist so maybe that's to be expected When I heard of this title

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFContrary to a negative review you might read at goodreads if you have anyone close to you suffering with mental illness I would highly recommend this book It was recommended to me by a police officer who was greatly helped in thinking through this tragic issue And the author Pete Early is not too close to the issue to be objective it is a very helpful expose of problems on many sides of what the subtitle rightly labels America's Mental Health MadnessUnder the over corrective guise of civil liberties and personal rights genuine and true concerns there is now a protocol and system that ties the hands of physicians psychiatrists family members and workers in the dangerously small field of mental health so that loved ones impaired and traumatized by admitted irrationality and psychosis cannot be helped they can only be quarantined temporarily often with virtually no real care just warehousing at best but very quickly

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDF One cliché about the rise and fall of a family’s wealth is “from shirt sleeves to shirt sleeves in three generations” The treatment of the seriously mentally ill in the United States could be similarly described as “from naked in the jail cell to naked in the jail cell in two centuries” In the early 19th century the Reverend Louis Dwight found in a Boston jail an insane prisoner who was naked in a jail cell without furniture though with a comfy pile of dirty straw In the early 21st century author and former Washington Post reporter Pete Earley found in the Miami Dade County Pretrial Detention Center henceforth the Miami jail found that those mentally ill prisoners who had attempted suicide were kept naked in a cell furnished with sink toilet and a hard plastic bed without bedding Earley came to write about the relatio

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFAs a mental health provider I agree with the idea behind Kendra’s Law although I have never seen it in practice Unfortunately mental health care is dictated by insurance not by physician or treatment team recommendations Our team has seen our share of revolving door syndrome as described in this book Many members of our community express surprise that mental health care is not mandatory and that a violent act either to self or others is “required” for a hospital admission And then three or four days inpatient is not enough time to determine if medication a

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFAs a psychiatrist reading this book I feel ashamed I'm ashamed I can't help people because the laws prevent it and ashamed I have to tell family members that I can do nothing for their loved one who is an adult and has the right to refuse treatment that could treat his or her illness That's when I can talk to family members most of the time I can't because of HIPAA If we took just a few days of funds from the war in Iraq and put them into our nation's mental health system think of the lives that could be saved Ins

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFWowThis book opened another world for me the world of mental illness I never knew for one that mental illness can begin during periods of stress such as that experienced graduating from high school or college I never knew that legislation can protect an individual's rights to the point that parents can not get help for their mentally ill young adults Basically if a schizophrenic is in denial of his disease he can refuse medication or treatment even if his actions may land him in prison There are too many parents suffering as they are forced to watch their children descend into hell When those suffering from men

    Crazy eBook Á Paperback crazy book, Crazy PDFNot at all a bad overview of the politics of mental health and specifically moving factions of patients' rights vs families' right to get a person labeled incapable of making medical decisions for themselves as well as where we physically put the chronically and criminally mentally ill in this country Earley is extremely thorough to the point where I thought perhaps he'd made this same point deinstitutionalization ultimately hurt far people than it helped we have no viable replacement of social services in place persuasively a hundred pages ago But if you're interested in investigating every angle of that through four different if somewhat repetitive case studies this book is greatMy main gripe is the author's attempt
