I saw my first bond reduction hearing at High Point’s courthouse. A middle-aged woman was in jail for assault on a female, which resulted in minor injuries. The defendant had four biological children and two adopted children. She reported that she had employment before the crime. The defendant was requesting
J Board Appeal Since I am unable to make judicial board tonight I would like to state my appeal. In terms of “bumping” the kid who threw the punch I do plead guilty to that charge. However, leading up to this incident I was trying to play peacemaker, as Tim and the others trying to keep this kid out were unable to control the situation appropriately due to this kids hostile mentality. Leading up to this event I had been watching the door all night and just minutes before I had broken up a potential fight between a non Sigma Chi and two other non Sigma Chis who were upset about not being able to enter the party. After I peacefully got those kids to leave I went back up to the steps and calmly told the others who were loitering around the party
This is obviously a sign of bad mental health, but there were several incidents that led up to this state of mind. An often occurrence were the fights between her and her husband. She didn’t agree with his ethics and motivations to grow human organs such as kidneys, brain tissue, and livers inside pigoons. “The goal of the pigoon project was to grow foolproof human-tissue organs in a transgenic knockout pig” (Atwood 22). This was an issue that may have caused Jimmy’s mother to be neglectful towards her son was her depression. Depression is a mental illness that affected her everyday life. She was so exhausted with the fights with her husband and the depression on top of that. This caused her to be uninterested in her son and it is also what caused her to run away with Jimmy’s pet. This shows that mental illness isn’t always caused by something, but rather someone is born with it. People with depression always have it, but it can be triggered to where it affects their everyday lives. Jimmy’s mother’s depression may have been triggered by stress about her husband’s job and constant arguing with her husband. Either way, whether it is ones chemical make-up or something that causes it, mental health really does affect the way people live their lives.
As he crouched in the corner of the metro car, embarrassed and demeaned, I stared, crying. Rather than taking the man to a hospital to treat the obviously infected, festering welts that plagued his skin, the man’s pus infested abscesses spurred passengers to flee our metro car to avoid his
Many people who suffer from this disorder may have suicidal thoughts, bi-polar disorder and also depression .Upon her arrival at the institution she meets some of the patients who she quickly starts to connect and develop a bond with especially with one of the patients named Lisa who is diagnosed as a sociopath. Psychiatrists and psychologists states that a sociopath is someone with a personality disorder who “displays antisocial tendencies that are ascribed to social or environmental factors.” Other definitions include “A pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood.” (Dr.Axe, 2017). With this being said anyone could suffer from a personality disorder and majority of the time it goes unnoticed because we end up blaming other people for the way we feel or react to certain situations. As the movie goes on we are introduced to another woman named Daisy she suffered from compulsive eating disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and also self harm.
DEPRESSION 3 circumstances, influences from family, chemical imbalances in the brain, genetic, nationality, and or self-inflicted psychosis.
Biological factors such as genetics and family could have played a role. Esther’s father is deceased so she lives with her mother. Both her parents are German descent so they spoke German. Esther said, “my German-speaking father, dead since I was nine, came from some manic-depressive hamlet in the black heart of Prussia,” (Plath 45) which could explain why she developed MDD. It is known that heritability rates are higher for women than for men so the genetic contribution from her father was strong and could explain why Esther had MDD and her brother did not. Another factor that could have played a role was psychological dimensions. These could include a stressful life event that occurred in Esther’s life that could affect her memory and mood. It can also include negative cognitions. The depressive cognitive triad could explain why Esther developed MDD because she would mostly interpret life events in a negative way. Lastly, a cause could be that her neurotransmitters are off balance or she has too much or too little of

I personally have never had to deal with the American Legal System. My roommate’s sister on the other hand was not as lucky. Amanda went out to the club in L.A. with her friends. All of them were underage drinking and having a good time. She decided to drink and drive. On their way home she crashed her car. Coincidentally, one of her friends was driving by and recognized her car. He came over, helped them out of the car, and took them to a nearby gas station. An onlooker obviously reported the accident to the police. The police rushed over to the scene. Amanda and her friends went back to the car accident to be met with interrogating cops. Since Amanda left the scene not only did she get charged with a DUI, but also a hit and run. She got arrested
The article “On Being Sane in Insane Places” by D.L. Rosenhan was first published in Science in 1973. Rosenhan was a professor at Stanford University and this article is about one of his most famous experiments. The article is about the curiosities Rosenhan had in regards to sanity. He wanted to know if there was any valid way of determining if a person was actually “insane” and if sanity was real. The experiment he devised included himself as one of eight pseudopatients, as he puts it, who malingered themselves into different hospitals. All eight pseudopatients were admitted by feigning symptoms of auditory hallucinations. The pseudopatients wrote in journals of what they experienced and also what they observed. Once the pseudopatients were admitted they had to find their own way out by acting as if they no longer had a mental illness. While under a hospital’s care, regardless if a hospital had a high standard of care, all patients seemed to be dehumanized and were treated as if their mental illness was the one thing that defined their existence. Rosenhan concluded by these observations and experiences that once a person has been diagnosed with a mental illness, he or she is confined to that diagnosis for the rest of his or her life and the stigmas that go along with it.
