Mental Health Perspectives: The Psychology Behind Mass Shootings In The US

How Mental Health Warrants Could Be A Legal, Sensible & Effective Means of Preventing Future Mass Murders –

•Mainstream Mental Health has identified an approach to address school and mass shooting threat concerns. The main need is a mental health warrant to search to validate the threat which has to be investigated by police.

•If there’s evidence to support it, it has to go back to the judge, and then the judge would issue a warrant to the individual to have a Licensed Clinical Forensic Psychologist assess them primarily for potential risk of violence and other potential mental health issues. If the person refuses to comply, they can be arrested on Contempt of Court, and then the evaluation would be completed in jail.

The way to go about this is though the following methods:

1. A Mental Health Warrant would need to be drafted by local law enforcement to investigate the potential for violence. This could be after a report was made by someone else online (i.e., threats made on YouTube comments, 4Chan, Facebook, etc.), or in the person’s social circle, who has observed the threats made by the individual. This would then be reviewed and possibly approved by a judge

2. If approved by the Judge, an investigation would take place by local officials to determine the likelihood of threats, and would then report back to the courts. If no significant threat is identified, the investigation would be closed, the individual may be contacted to let them know that their actions have consequences, and to make sure they understand the implications of those actions.

3. If a notable threat is found, the judge could then order a risk evaluation, the individual would then have to meet with a Forensic Psychologist to assess them for being a reasonable and identifiable threat. This provision is specific, as Forensic Psychologists are specially trained in evaluating threat assessments in a legal manner.

4. If the person refuses to comply with the order, then the judge can order that the individual is in contempt of a court order, and then the individual can be assessed while incarcerated.
