The Neolithic era details the earliest treatment of mental illnesses (dating back as far as 10,200 BC). Men, women, and children alike from all parts of the world (the greatest evidence found in ancient Peru) underwent an invasive surgery, which involved physicians drilling a hole into the skull to reveal the Dura mater. This hole was supposedly an exit pathway for demonic spirits to leave the human body. This treatment of mental illness was know as trephination, and was the most widely accepted form of medical care for mentally ill patients (Feldman, 2001).
The cost of aging prisoners in need of mental health care is increasing and federal and state agencies can best meet this cost with new support systems. Prison health care providers can establish relationships between correctional facilities and nursing homes to advance the level of care for these inmates. Prison authorities can examine tolerant release programs or services for weak detainees who do not pose a danger to their own safety and those in society any longer. Furthermore, States have to reconsider the mandated punishment legislation “that did away with judicial consideration” and crowded the jails “in the first place.”

In just a small, pink, squishy orb, many thoughts and memories are stored. The inside of a brain has always been a touchy subject, mostly because most just don’t understand how it works. Brains are trying to figure out how it can think, talk, remember, and even change. Everyone’s brain is different, inside and out. Most minds are small and round, but sometimes the brain looks different. In recent studies, scientists have learned the brain can have abnormalities, which usually leads to a mental illness. Another risky subject in the world is mental illness. Some people say that it is made up. Which it is not, because now science can prove how it is. It is not hard to see the difference between a “normal” brain, and an ill one. Someone who studies the nature of the mind is known as a psychologist. A psychologist can be in many different job scenarios, but the most recent expansion is the forensic psychologists. (Cherry) Their job is to determine if someone did the crime he or she did, and if they knew they did or not. For years on end, killers have gotten away scot-free, until the invention of forensic psychology.
