Are the parole boards involved in this discussion? Seems they should know about these conditions for inmates, when making their decisions, and allowing more hope to get out.

It's obvious that the protocall that counselors, psychiatrists have to follow is just not working. It seems even if they had a different plan of action for suicidal inmates, they cannot move forward because of the rules. It seems to me that it is an entirely large waste of the millions of dollars put into the time and care for inmate mental health, if effective care is impossible. How can non licensed people like myself help?
