Michael McBride :: Are mental health and incarceration connected?

  • “Hurting people hurts other people,” responds Michael McBride, Executive Director of Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action and Lead Pastor of The Way Christian Center in Berkeley, CA. Exposure to trauma at a young age can create anti-social and criminal behavior. “Mental health requires in some respects, some kind of public health space.” Those that do not have access to mental health services will most likely self-medicate, through the use of drugs and alcohol, which then can lead to other anti-social behavior. “Jesus cared about our physical and mental well-being while He was here preaching.”
