My gratitude to the Bridgewater State University Career Services Department, for making a workstation available for me to post from. They didn’t have to do this, and I’m grateful.
Paul Heroux, Ma. State Jr. Representative came by as a guest speaker. He has a Deaf friend who taught him Sign, and he used a little at the intro to his speech. He’s worked in the Mass DOC, and has worked with the mentally ill. He also writes for Huffington Post.
Dr. Monteiro spoke in detail about mental health issues, and in particular about the Deaf mentally ill patient in the clinical environment. He will now begin speaking on the over-arching issue of the Deaf and the Justice System.
