Crime and mental health are linked because crime is caused by not being able to cope with emotions and difficulties.
In particular, Strain in a person"s life is the major cause of crime in our world. A strain is what fear and anger stem off and this causes all sorts of violence and impulsive actions. Strain can result from losing something of value, Such as a career or marriage, Personal relationships have gone wrong or from failing to get something of value. Strain into someone"s life leads to negative emotions such as sadness, Depression, Anxiety or anger and when a person has a negative emotion from the strain they become unable to cope with their difficulties. Violence and crime by adults is a childlike response to a frightening world that they believe has been unfair to them and is deserving of punishment. Also, Anger from not knowing how to cope with difficulties is associated with violent acts, Including homicide, Aggravated assault, Rape, Domestic violence, Child abuse, Bullying, Torture, And even terrorism according to leading criminologist, Dr Robert Agnew.
