The selection of chairperson and members of District Mental Health Review Boards is under process and will be completed in the next few weeks. Once the members are nominated, the 13 boards will start functioning.

The State Mental Health Authority (SMHA) is currently processing the applications. It had called for applications for appointment to various positions last month.

The boards are headquartered at Chennai, Tiruvallur, Vellore, Villupuram, Salem, Erode, Tiruchi, Ramanathapuram, Theni, Tirunelveli, Coimbatore, Thanjavur and Madurai. Except in Chennai, the boards will cover two to three districts each. “We are currently processing the applications. The process will be completed in the next few weeks,” an official said.

As per the Mental Healthcare Act, the board should consist of a district judge or an officer of the State judicial services who is qualified to be appointed as district judge or retired district judge as chairperson. It should have two members including a psychiatrist and two members such as those with mental illness or care-givers or NGOs working in the field of mental health.

Periodic reviews

Officials said the board would play a pivotal role in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients at the district-level. One of the main responsibilities of the board is to take up periodic review of supported admissions/involuntary admissions.

This was admission of a person with mental illness without his/her consent or against his/her wish, officials said. “The main aim of the Act is to rehabilitate patients so that they can go back into the society. In many cases, patients are admitted and they stay for more than one or two years. Supported admissions need monitoring and supervision. So, the boards will take up periodic reviews of such cases,” he added. This could be at any hospital where psychiatric patients are admitted — a government or private hospital, medical college hospital, nursing home, de-addiction centre or private psychiatry facility.

“The medical officer of the mental health establishment should inform the respective mental health review board of such an admission in three days in case of an adult and within 24 hours if it is a woman or minor,” he said.

The admission of all minors should be with the consent of legal guardian and should be reviewed by the board within three weeks, he added.

NARS High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a new, permanent range of eyeliners available in 16 shades, which are ranked from best to worst. The formula is supposed to have “12-hour wear” that is “humidity” and “sweat-proof” while also being “water-resistant” and “transfer-resistant.”

The texture definitely felt a bit gel-like, as intended, as the product glided across my skin without tugging or dragging, and the pigmentation seemed a bit inkier and richer. They’re creamier–but not too creamy–than previous iterations of the formula, and they wore significantly better than most of NARS’ pencils have for me.

Some shades lasted longer than others, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation, comfortable to apply, went on evenly, and were easy to use. Most lasted for eight to ten hours on my lower lash line with wear on my water line being six to eight hours in most instances. They didn’t fade/thin on me cleanly; they did migrate to the outer corner (occasionally the inner corner), though.

  • Two statements from APA officials make it clear that they don’t see any substantial link between mental illness and gun violence.
  • Decades of studies show that there is no conclusive evidence to this knee jerk rhetoric.
  • Officials reiterate the argument that the easy access to guns is to blame.

In the wake of the latest mass shootings throughout the United States, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has pushed back against politicians linking mental illness to the issue. The country’s largest organization of psychiatrists released a number of statements condemning what they considered a faulty line of thinking.

The APA believes that people with mental illness are at risk for greater stigmatization because of this kind of rhetoric. Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD, CEO of the APA, released a statement outlining his thoughts on the matter.

Blaming mental illness for the gun violence in our country is simplistic and inaccurate and goes against the scientific evidence currently available. – Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD

Countless studies have found that there is no conclusive evidence that marks the mentally ill with having a greater predisposition for gun violence.

“The United States is a global outlier when it comes to horrific headlines like the ones that consumed us all weekend. Although the United States makes up less than 5% of the world’s population, we are home to 31% of all mass shooters globally, according to a CNN analysis. This difference is not explained by the rate of mental illness in the U.S.”

The APA believes that it’s our access to guns which foster these calamities.

Access to guns 

It’s a common refrain from gun advocates after a terrible tragedy. That guns aren’t the problem, the mentally deranged are. A recent study from the University of Texas Medical Branch found that gun access, not mental health leads to gun violence.

“Americans own nearly half of the estimated 650 million civilian-owned guns in the world. Access to this final, fatal tool means more deaths that occur more quickly, whether in a mass shooting or in someone’s own home.”

The aforementioned study looked into three potential links to gun violence: gun access and ownership, mental illness, and personality traits. The only thing that conclusively predicted gun violence was access.

“Counter to public beliefs, the majority of mental health symptoms examined were not related to gun violence. Instead, access to firearms was the primary culprit,” the researchers stated.

Again, Evans echoed this in his APA statement. Psychological scientists have repeatedly found that the majority of people will mental illness are not violent. Currently, there’s no singular way to predict whether or not someone will engage in gun violence either.

Mental illness myth 

The main driving psychological driving force behind mass shooters is a bit confused. Liza H. Gold and Robert I. Simon’s book Gun Violence and Mental illness found that less than 5% of mass shootings have been connected to someone with a psychiatric disorder, or one that could be diagnosed.

Yet, to the psychiatric layperson (especially pundits and politicians) – the presumption to commit a heinous crime like a mass shooting, seems like just the thing an insane person would do. No matter the categorization from the APA, or the DSM-5 keepers – common sense dictates that there is something seriously wrong with these people.

The psychological profile for mass shooters is usually a young angry and isolated male. Regardless of their ill-fated crusades, social woes, color or creed, they are all intellectually stunted idealogues. Radicalized by their sources of hate, ignorance and bigotry – the unholy three – and unfettered access to guns leads us to this ceaseless problem.

Yet, psychiatrists point out again that other countries have the same exceptionally high amount of mental disorders, like for example in Western Europe. But there is not the same high number of mass shootings. The care for our mentally ill and other ideas being floated around like the dearth of our open mental institutions – are a related but separate problem entirely.

APA President Rosie Phillips Davis, PhD said equally as much:

“The combination of easy access to assault weapons and hateful rhetoric is toxic. Psychological science has demonstrated that social contagion — the spread of thoughts, emotions and behaviors from person to person and among larger groups — is real, and may well be a factor, at least in the El Paso shooting.”

Currently, the best in class have a plan to lessen the frequency of mass shootings.

“Based on the psychological science, we know some of the steps we need to take. We need to limit civilians’ access to assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. We need to institute universal background checks. And we should institute red flag laws that remove guns from people who are at high risk of committing violent acts.”

The APA mentions that President Trump has called on the nation to “do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs.” Research, that they think they can eventually do. Trump has also put forth the idea that he wants social media companies to develop A.I. that could flag potential mass shooters before they strike – something right out of a Phillip K. Dick novel.

Evans ends his statement with a true call to arms, to get past the rhetoric once and for all and create real solutions.

“The president clearly said that it is time to stop the hateful rhetoric that is infecting the public discourse. We ask that he use his powerful position to model that behavior. And we ask that the federal government support the research needed to better understand the causes of bigotry and hate, and their association to violence, so that we may devise evidence-based solutions.”

If you love a classic berry swirl ice cream, this is your recipe. Intense, bright strawberry or raspberry sorbet threaded with the creamiest waves of vanilla. This version is made with cream, but I’ve also posted a non-dairy version here. It is my absolute favorite flavor, and yes, you can absolutely use frozen (thawed) berries!

Classic Berry Swirl Ice CreamClassic Berry Swirl Ice Cream

The Recipe

The berry sorbet component couldn’t be easier to make. You use a blender to puree whole fruit with some sugar, strain, and you’re in business. The vanilla swirl is a bit more intensive. You need to make a classic vanilla custard, and then churn from there. I like to make the swirl components up to a few days ahead of time, when I have a few minutes, and then churn a couple hours before serving. It’s great for days after, but is full-stop magic enjoyed just shortly after churning.

Letter



Let’s shift the pro and anti gun sentiments and current politicized deadlock to creating a solution








<!--

-->

Let’s look at things a little differently and shift from the Second Amendment argument to the First Amendment. The following opinion is meant to examine a small segment of the population, i.e. unstable persons with clear violent intent. As a former mental health professional for the Crisis Response Team, I witnessed daily pleas by family members and loved ones concerned for the safety of someone who is making threatening remarks to harm themselves or others. Calls to police, county attorney and public defender’s offices, and psychiatric hospitals were very similar. An emotionally unstable person had a gun or an arsenal of guns and was threatening to kill a lot of people. Sadly, unless the person’s intent was imminent as defined in the Montana Mental Health Code, there is nothing law enforcement or mental health professionals can do other than a welfare check and mental health evaluation. In many cases this has occurred multiple times, and usually the person is released from the ER or jail because the threats were not “imminent.” The responses from police, judicial and mental health systems appears to be a weak merry-go-round of “there’s nothing we can do” because of how the mental health statute is worded. See Montana Code Annotated 53-21-102 Definitions and (7) Emergency Situation, and 53-21-129 Emergency situation/petition/detention.

We need to have an open dialogue about mental health. Please engage your legislators to examine the definition and criteria of what constitutes an “Emergency Situation.” This needs to be changed at a state and national level. We need the cooperation of the National Rifle Association and the National Alliance of the Mentally Ill (NAMI) to respectfully move forward with changing the verbiage for involuntary civil commitments. Let’s shift the pro and anti gun sentiments and current politicized deadlock to creating a solution.

Creamed corn is summer’s comfort food.

The starchy residue that lies beneath the kernels thickens the corn, and in this version, cream seals the deal. Even summer has its cool and rainy days, but a warm bowl of these sweet golden kernels can cheer you while you wait for the sun to come out.

FRESH VS. FROZEN CORN

In corn season, fresh corn is always optimal, and it really is the sweetest, most irresistible choice. You can also extract corn milk, a sweet starchy liquid, from the cobs of fresh corn. Corn that is fresh off the cob has a creamy, succulent quality that announces summer is here!

Having said that, you could substitute frozen corn, especially if you want to make this for a fall holiday (hello, Thanksgiving!) when corn is not in season.

Unfortunately, you can’t extract corn milk from frozen kernels. To mimic the creaminess of corn milk using frozen corn, try pureeing a small amount (about 1/3 cup of the kernels) in a blender to release some of the starch, and stir it into the corn.

Best Creamed Corn Recipe - bowl of creamed corn wtih spoon and herbsBest Creamed Corn Recipe - bowl of creamed corn wtih spoon and herbs

MAKE-AHEAD CREAMED CORN

Once made, creamed corn can be stored in the refrigerator for at least three days. It can also be frozen for up to three months.

HOW TO SERVE THIS SIDE DISH

When corn is abundant, you could serve creamed corn with any warm weather meal as a side dish, but it’s not just for summer.

It would also be a good addition to your Thanksgiving table, especially since it can be made ahead of time with frozen corn.

By itself it is pure heaven, but you could vary it by adding some spicy jalapeños or chopped poblano peppers; other additions that come to mind are chopped basil, sliced cherry tomatoes, and cooked bacon crumbles.

For a creamed corn casserole, add a little extra liquid (cream or water,) sprinkle a little cheddar or Parmesan on top, and bake in a 375ºF oven until brown and bubbly.

Updated August 17, 2019 : We gave this recipe an overhaul to make it even more amazing. Apologies to those of you who loved the original, but we think you’ll like this updated version even better. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

When law enforcement officers share their experiences with friends and family, whether it’s responding to a car accident, a domestic dispute or a shooting, Atlantic County Sheriff Eric Scheffler said it can feel isolating. 

“You can see the face of your loved ones literally change and you show them the bad,” Scheffler said. “We quickly realize, wow, we don’t want to share that with them so instead of coming home and bearing or souls and being able to communicate and being able to get it off of our body, we have to hold it in.”

While repressing these kinds of negative feelings may have plagued law enforcement bodies in the past, things are changing on the state and local levels as top officials are putting resiliency training to the forefront. 

Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal issued a directive earlier this month that requires all law enforcement agencies in the state to appoint at least one resiliency program officer, RPO, who will be responsible for implementing the state’s resiliency training program designed to create a supportive culture. 

“The men and women of law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to protect the citizens of New Jersey. Often the first to respond to a scene, these officers regularly encounter some of the most traumatic events affecting their community,” Grewal said in a news release.

The program is modeled off of training used by the FBI. 

Scheffler, who has served as a certified trainer for the FBI and worked with other leaders to develop the state program, said that resiliency is based on fulfilling needs in four domains: mental, physical, spiritual and social.

He said police, and first-responders in general, may not know that the exhaustion they might feel from the job can stem from mental exhaustion and stress over time. Resiliency training is designed to give them the tools to respond positively to that stress. 

“We talk about how to reset that,” Scheffler said. “When you feel like that do you go to potato chips and a beer or do you go for a walk?”

Grewal also mentioned the emotional and mental toll of this work that can contribute to a range of health issues, including increased blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, substance misuse, family and relationship stress, self-harm and risk of suicide. 

According to Blue HELP, a nonprofit organization that tracks and monitors law enforcement suicides, at least 167 officers died by suicide last year, more than the total number of line-of-duty deaths. In New Jersey 37 law enforcement officers reportedly have died by suicide since 2016, according to the organization.

“We have a special responsibility to ensure that New Jersey’s law enforcement officers are equipped with the tools they need to cope with the unique stressors of their work,” Grewal said. 

The resiliency program officer will not only train the officers in their agency but also provide contact information for any other support services and programs.

RPOs are also not limited to just serving their own department. Grewal said that any officer can come to any RPO for assistance. 

The RPO will not replace existing support programs. Grewal said law enforcement officers are encouraged to continue to use these and other programs whenever needed.

“I think the directive is a good thing for police officers. It’s going to help them do their job better and in times of crisis have resources to call upon,” said Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae. “Any new tool in the toolbox for mental well being is a plus for everyone.”

Each county prosecutor will appoint one or more county RPO trainers and each state law enforcement agency will appoint one more state RPO trainers within 60 days of the directive.

They will then complete a train-the-trainer program no later than Dec. 31, 2020.

These officers will then train local law enforcement RPOs. All local law enforcement will receive resiliency training by the end of 2022.

Middle Township Police Chief and the President of the Chiefs of Police Association Christopher Leuser said he thinks the real value in this is the fact that leaders such as Grewal are talking about this issue in the open.

“This is something that has not been talked about in the open very often,” Leusner said. “I think it’s important that we bring it into the open that we talk about it that we communicate to our officers that asking for help is a show of strength.”

The department already utilizes Cop 2 Cop, 24-hour hotline officers can call at any time, and employee assistance programs. Now Leuser is in the process of appointing an RPO that will go through a two-day training in Trenton in October. 

“This is a step in creating a culture where it’s okay to talk about this it’s okay to say I’m impacted and okay I need help,” he said.
