Would school violence decrease if greater emphasis were placed on treating the mental disorders of younger people?

  • School Violence Decrease

    I personally think that school violence would decrease if greater emphasis were placed on treating the mental disorders of younger people. Mental disorders that can lead to a violent outburst should be investigated if a student is showing signs of a disorder. This would help prevent school violence. In many of the situations where school violence has occurred, the perpetrators turned out to have psychological disorders which if taken seriously could have prevented the attacks.

  • It's not always about mental illness.

    As much as people want to pass the buck and blame everything on mental illness, there's also the parenting aspect (or lack of) that's also an issue. When the babies grow up and become mouthy and needy, they ain't so cute anymore. And then the neglect sets in.
    The kids that are disruptive in class aren't always mentally ill. Either they mimic their parent's behavior or the kid wasn't taught that there are boundaries or how to behave while out in public or at school.

    Anymore, I believe parenting classes should be mandatory for anyone wanting to become a parent, or they just found out they're about to have one.

  • No, school violence will not decrease by just treating mental disorders

    School violence and behavior of young people is the result of two things. The first is our culture. The second is the availability of weapons to young people. Our cultural values have shifted and parents no longer really parent very well and there is no sense of individual responsibility. It is also just too easy for people to get guns.

  • No: School Violence Would Not Decrease if Child Mental Disorders Were Emphasized

    The reason that this kind of violence would not go down is because the problem is a wholistic one. Addressing mental disorders under the current system would only treat a few symptoms. Poor diet, technological over stimulation, disconnection from nature, over prescription of medication, poverty, and a lack of healthy role-models are all factors in this violence, but to adequately address them would be to change not only the school system, but the culture as a whole. This goes way beyond "emphasizing" the treatment of mental disorders of young people.

  • Emphasis Is Placed

    I believe the treatment of mental disorders for younger people do receive emphasis, but some parents are unwilling to get their children help or they don't want to admit there is a problem. I believe this is what causes the most problem is the neglect of the parent to do the proper thing.
