Inside England's Prisons: A Mental Health Crisis | Prison | Real Responders

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 21 ม.ค. 2024
  • Filmed over 7 months, Prison tells the human story on both sides of the door: staff and prisoners, and the real issues facing them all. With a vast weekly traffic of prisoners from driving offences to murderers to drug addicts, the prison is faced with ever changing demands, a pressure on bed space and complex prisoner needs.
    Capturing first-hand the escalating drug problem, the scale of violence that frontline staff and prisoners endure daily and the multiple challenges of dealing with those suffering from mental health issues, the series reflects the national issues currently facing the prison service.

    I'm someone that spent my late teens to mid 20's in and out of both and the psych units they put people in are not much better than prison. The voluntary psych unit was decent but people in this situation would be in lockdown units where I live. Some prisons have psych housing units and cell blocks.

  • @Chris-qq6gc
    @Chris-qq6gc 3 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

    Being locked-up in a cell for 20-23 hours a day is not the way a person will “reform.”
    Yes, these ppl have done something wrong, have broken the law, and need to be punished. And jail is our modern times solution for that punishment. However, IMO, it is too extreme for some crimes.
    I am not talking about making it comfy for murderers and ppl who are guilty of other heinous crimes. I’m suggesting better conditions for:
    1) First-time offenders;
    2) Criminals whose crimes are not that severe (a case review would have to be done for each person);
    3) Guilty offenders who are showing remorse for their crimes and a real interest in changing their lives into being productive individuals; and
    4) Individuals who have some type a mental health issue.

    75 years ago these People would be in what they called “Asylum’s” Most large Cities had multiple Asylum’s on the outskirts. Where I grew up in Lancaster there were 3. The Royal Albert and the Moore Hospital can’t remember the other. Those are now closed and the patients released into the community.

    • @jule3480

      They did that in Australia because of abysmal management, abuse etc. instead of restructuring them and cleaning them up,they shut them down.
      Now, they wander the streets , end up in gaol or short stint in hospitals.
      There is a severe shortage of actual mental health short and long term facilities.

    These people have no idea how to engage with someone with delusions. James was actually fairly logical and was willing to be convinced to an extent.
    Someone should have sat with him, entertained his delusions and helped him seek proof. Upon finding no proof, you could steer him towards finding proof the delusions can't be real. Statistical likelihood of a vast conspiracy, the cost of keeping it up, the chances that so many people are going after him specifically (a nobody), etc.
    You would show him videos of other people with similar delusions before and after seeking help, coping strategies from other people with delusions, etc.
    It seems they only know how to either throw medication at him or try to coax him into simply complying. Not that medication doesnt have a place, but you have to engage with these people on their own level sometimes and nobody seems to do that here.

    If we committed sins we need to confess to the priest because we are dirty spiritually by taking a bath thru confessing our sins to the priests forgive and repent in that way our souls will be clean. We no longer dirty in the eyes of GOD even not clean in the eyes of many people but on GOD'S eyes your are clean already but if we sin again confess again. We are just only human. Just like taking a bath because no bath we are dirty if after a bath dirty again it is normal we will take a bath again to be healthy and clean again. But if we know same sin you keep on repeating the same sins I think thats no longer good. God will give you punishment even you know it is a sin but keep on repeating the ACTS of sin.
