Kent, WA

In 2008, about 4,300 adults over the age of 18 in Washington who were diagnosed with a mental illness were incarcerated, according to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI). It’s a problem in Washington and across the country: NAMI reports that 31 percent of the female population and 14 percent of the male population in jails and prisons across the country are suffering from a mental health disorder.

Is this a problem that affects your family in Kent, Washington? If your loved one is living with a mental illness, make sure they get mental health treatment; don’t let untreated symptoms spiral out of control.

The Myth of Mental Illness

Thanks to the media, the few cases of people diagnosed with mental illnesses who commit crimes due to untreated symptoms seem to be the norm. The fact is, many in the general population fear diagnoses like “schizophrenia” or “bipolar disorder” simply because they are unfamiliar with them. They believe that those who are “mentally ill” are inherently dangerous and, as a result, these patients may find themselves facing the harshest possible punishment in court when what they need more than anything is effective mental health care.
