Usual bipolar aren't violent ,they have rages and more prone to hurt themselfs ,most of the time people have another diagnoses along with bipolar and causes a confusion on making a diagnoses.
That person that states that's where they need to be in locked up,and about the cost of the care .I wonder if we should do the same with your parents as they get old and sick with old timers .he had ever reason to flip out ,taken off medicine cold turkey ,his mind went in state of confusion and fear ,maybe even sychosis thinking ,a diabetic needs medicine to keep on track.its an illness that can be kept under control ,people with mental disorders need a good support such as family and friends,and yes they slip on medicine time to time ,there human just like you are ,the people close to them are the people that notice the change have a better chance to persuade them back on track,read information as much as you can ,
My son is locked up for a revoke on his misdemeanor,which wasn't even his fault ,he's on disabilty for bipolar ,judge had in house assessment saying hes not bipolar so he can can him to bootcamp 8 hours away ,no medicine ,denied medical ,its a world of mess ,its a corrupt system and everyone is affraid of it here ,my son is in a state of mind ,that I'm in mommy mode
It's unfortunate that these vocal locals got into the Forest Service and prevented this local owner from developing jobs in the valley. Instead of keeping ownership in the valley with the Maclay's it's now at risk of being run by some conglomerate like Intrawest or Boyne that could swoop in and buy it up. I hope the Forest Service revisits its decision and the people of the valley hope to come out of the recession by supporting this outdoor experience resort.
Thank you..for this. I have been playing 35 years. Never seen one in person,never seen one played.....but now-wow! I remember seeing pictures or ads way back. Gotta play one some day!
Colton is my brother, and because of him I was inspired to become a corrections nurse and have seen 1st hand the mental and physical abuse suffered by some of the inmates. The corrections staff (in most cases) have become jaded and sometimes heartless toward the inmates which leads to an amazing abuse of power and cover ups. The only way to fully understand this mind blowing underworld is to be a part of it and to feel the helplessness yourself. As for me, all I could do is treat every inmate/patient that comes my way as a human being, stand up for what is right, and hopefully make some kind of difference no matter how small. Until you come home litttle bro, love Sissy
The budget woes could be addressed more than adequately if the BOPP would grant parole to the hundreds of inmates who are eligible, and who have established their rehabilitation. Why is the DOC so determined to keep so many incarcerated who no longer need to be there???
Here's an idea: check out this android app to save yourself some time: "bookmyband" search without spaces, I had trouble finding it when a friend told me about it.
Wow, to the first comment....do you know how many people would be put in prison just for having a mental disorder with that kind of thinking? No wonder CCA wants to buy prisons in 48 states of America. They would get rich just on that ideology alone! Would you perchance happen to be working for CCA?
Obviously the author of the above comment has not kept abreast of neuro science, psychiatry and brain imaging. Nor does he have an understanding of just how much tax payer money feeds the bloated DOC administration rather than spending it towards evidence based successful offender re-entry. Recidivism is over 40% at a cost of millions to Montana Tax Payers. To understand this better, one needs to follow the money. The DOC receives funding according to numbers it incarcerates so why should they implement policies that reduces recidivism or keeps person's out of their system. This needs to be turned around and the monitary and personal bennifit should come from success not failure.
Kiely Howard, APRN specialist in adolecent psychiatric medicine summary statement
In my professional opinion, the reason Colton did not succeed in Boot Camp is two-fold. One, he was not allowed adequate treatment prior to entering Boot Camp as approved by Department of Corrections staff. Two, the medical decision at Boot Camp, to then discontinue the medication, Vyvanse, treatment for ADHD literally pulled the plug on Colton's neurological connections to judgment, reasoning, decision making and ability to meet his goals, which thereby exacerbated the symptoms of his mood disorder. It was my understanding, in collaboration with the Department of Corrections staff, that Colton, prior to entering Boot Camp, would be allowed time to be stabilized psychiatrically. This process was cut short. It was also my understanding in collaboration with the Department of Corrections staff, that Colton would receive the psychotropic medications prescribed by myself while attending Boot Camp. Necessary medical treatment was discontinued and, predictably, Colton failed. in summary, because Colton did not receive the medical care established to reduce his symptoms and improve his neurological functioning, he did not succeed. Not administering treatment for ADHD was and absolute precursor to his failure. He will not succeed unless he is appropriately treated for both ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. Through this professional experience, at the great detriment to Colton's future, I have learned that it is the Department of Corrections policy NOT to treat the neurological disorder of ADHD, despite my attempts to assure that this would occur. Colton was motivated to be successful at Boot Camp. The medical policy of the Department of Corrections made that an impossible task
three problems here:
Montana does not have the budget to properly treat such inmates. Each of these prisoner/patients can cost tens of thousands a year to successfully medicate.
Psychiatry is not "real" medicine - while it is significantly better than any of the "alternative" healing nonsense, the fact that a large number of the ills it treats are syndromes - arbitrarilly grouped behavior patterns perhaps related and perhaps not - and that the same patient can go from one psych to the next and get vastly different diagnosis and treaments means the mechanistic part of the illness is not clearly understood. Its certainly better than nothing, but not on par with physical medicine which DOES have a solid body of mechanistic evidence.
Lastly we clearly cannot have these types of patients at large, even in a state as rural and vast as Montana. So what is to be done? This is a very unfortunate case and I feel bad for Colton, but I certainly would not want him in a setting where he is unsupervised - there are too many instances where people go off their meds for some reason or another and the tradgedy strikes.
Hello! This is Richard Spencer. Where did you get that photo? It's not of me, nor did it come "courtesy of The National Policy Institute."
Here's a more accurate one:
This made me cry in sadness and shout for joy at the same time. To all the Two Spirits, Be proud, be strong and hold your heads high. Let the ancestors know they are forgotten no more.
It’s wolfs people! Let’s not nuke it to death but rather just say it like it is. Elk are wolfs natural food and its natural for them to bring them down for food.
Just to be fare to all, there was a reason the wolf was shot out of the Bitterroot Valley. I think the wolf problem should be regulated better by hunts. That way the packs don’t grow into a large problem and start taking down cattle or God forbid people for food.
I was so disturbed by this story that I decided to never set foot in a Walmart again. I knew Walmart had some questionable practices, but this practice of cheating contractors just really crossed the line. That company is not getting another dollar from me and I was a regular customer for years.
Another example of excellent reporting on the part of the Missoula Independent. This is why the Independent is my favorite newspaper. You don't see this type of investigative journalism very often any more. Good job!
This article is not offensive, if anything, it states that people in the area are "okay" with Pinesdale. The fact that you people are offended that someone said sexual abuse occurs in homes is sad- and thinking like that contributes to denial. Sexual abuse happens in communities all across the country, and no one is denying that- I think we should worry when someone DOES deny it!
I enjoyed your article and feel the aspiring filmmaking community will only add to Missoula's charm but I think a footnote to this article should be that Barrett Productions was sold to Intermedia Outdoors three years ago. They closed the Missoula office at the end of 2011, laying off the majority of their employees. To say Barrett Productions adds to the Missoula filmmaking community simply isn't true.
A family member of mine was at the Missoula Detention center when this occurred. Although he wasn't present at the incident in question, he was questioned about what he had heard. It was going around that R.T. had been raped by Cody.
Flash forward to the Montana Innocence project getting involved. They used vehicle registration to track everyone involved in the case. As stated, they had a small list of people to interview due to so many deaths and incarcerations.
They visited my family member 2 times within a six-month period at one apartment. He told them he didn't want them to contact him again. Reliving his past was not something he wanted to talk about. He informed our family that if they showed up again, and asked about him, we should again tell them to stop contacting him.
I was home when they showed up (one girl and one dark-haired guy). I told them "he doesn't want to talk to you anymore and you are not welcome here." They asked me why he didn't want to talk to them. "Because he feels you are harassing him."
So yes, the Montana Innocence project is harassing everyone involved. That is the only thing that is clear in this case.
Excellent article, very informative. My little "Bonnie Lass" is from the Mason's Ranch. For now she enjoys herding toys but when a little older we'll see how she likes sheep.
She also likes to play "find the toy", where she waits while I hide one of her toys somewhere in the house. It's fun to watch her try and figure out where it is. Always checking the last hiding place first--just in case.
And yes, you need to give a Border Collie something to do. Because as so aptly indicated in the article, if you don't they'll definitely find something to do and you most likely will not enjoy what it is :)
yay! now we will have the equivalent of the sundance festival in montana! pretentious d-bags of California rejoice!!!
Such a good article. Thank you for your writing and examination of these wonderful dogs.
