Question?: Schizophrenia Causes

Michael asks…

I would like to know the symptoms of schizophrenia what causes it and the treament they have available?

admin answers:

Hi, symptoms of schizophrenia can be from mild to very extreme, depending on how bad the individual is afflicted with this disease. Mild symtoms include, talking to ones self a LOT, feeling somebody is watching them, feeling somebody is after them in some way. More severe symptoms are magnifications of the mild symptoms: Hearing voices, answering the voices either outloud or to one’s self, feeling extreamly paronoid ie: people are outside where the suffering person is located and watching them, trying to gain entrance to where the person is at, feeling very confused in thought process, feeling that people in the room in looking at and judging very negitively and purhaps even actively looking for ways to harm the person with this disease, inability to perform well in society, in very severe cases not even being able to dress one’s self without assistance due to scambled brain waves. A person with severe schizophrenia is a very ill person who needs immediant assistance. There are tests which can easily diagnose this illness as brain scans of those with the diseasse are not at all the same as those without it. Medicines can help with symtoms and life coaches, and caretakers can assist with daily life. Not all schizophrenia sufferers paranoid symptoms. However, with or without the paranoia, this can and does effect an individuals life in serious ways and treatment should be sought for diagnoses and treatment. Proper diagnoses is important so this is not mistaken for some other condition.

Question?: Autistic Definition

Jenny asks…

Is it wrong to send a mentally or physically ill person to jail?

This subject is hard for me because sometimes I think they don’t know what they are doing is wrong and they can’t even function in society let alone prison. For example someone that is autistic or any other illness they are mentally unstable but very strong and cause harm to others. They can be easily manipulated and can be manipulated to do wrong. Then there are those that are mentally ill like sociopaths. Can they be cured can anyone be cured and released back into society?
Why does being mentally ill excuse somebody from criminal guilt?
How is a jury of regular people qualified to determine whether or not somebody is mentally ill?
What level of mental illness constitutes “insanity”?
How do you prove somebody is (or was) insane?

admin answers:

It’s a difficult question. You are asking are they mad or bad. Most courts will take medical evidence and assessment into consideration at some point in the proceedings. A frightening number of people who really belong on a psychiatric ward are actually in prison, rather than a secure mental unit. When this happens, it is really a wicked thing for society to do, in my opinion. Courts can also ask for a full evaluation from specialists in this field prior to sentencing.

Why does being mentally ill excuse somebody ???? Isn’t it obvious?

They are insane!!! They genuinely don’t know which way is up!!! And they are not excused guilt – because they have some kind of compulsory penalty anyway!

Psychosis is the definition of the depth of disturbance that constitutes insanity.

Proof of insanity? The psychiatric/psychological professions have an extensive knowledge of all such matters, and in proving insanity, they would be the ones to consult. But, it is an art as much as it is a science, and a lot depends on professional judgement rather that pure science. Take a look at how long some diagnoses take to be formulated, because it is not immediately apparent what someone has got. Sometimes it takes years.
