Sandy Hook School Shooter Was Not Given Help For His Mental Problems: Report

Sandy Hook School Shooter Was Not Given Help For His Mental Problems: Report | FOOD? HEALTH? DISEASE? NATURAL CURES??? | Scoop.it
A report has revealed that Adam Lanza who shot and killed 26 people at a Connecticut school in 2012 had history of autism, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, but for years it was not treated.

Guido's comment, December 7, 6:18 PM
This news article claims several facts which highlight the importance of treatment for people with Anxiety Attacks. The person who made himself shoot 26 people in the Sandy Hook Elementary School was diagnosed with Anxiety and some other mental disorders. He never received treatment for his Anxiety which brought him into isolation. This is because people with Anxiety Attacks, which are not treated, are at risk to develop a disorder which isolates them (Myers, 2014). They are so scared for an Anxiety Attack that they will try and avoid it at all cost by hiding (Myers, 2014). Besides this, untreated Anxiety may cause a premature death and will damage the cognitive brain and diminish its thinking/reflective capacity when the person becomes older (Janov, 2013). This therefore explains the fact that the shooter was more isolated and probably had a diminished thinking and reflective capacity which let him to make bad decision (Janov, 2013). The article also claims that the shooter did not took the proper prescribed medication. Anxiety causes an off balance of the chemicals Serotonin and Glutamate which causes a depression. By taking his medication, his brain would have restored these chemicals and he would be less depressed which possibly also could have prevented him from making bad decision (Janov, 2013). This article highlights the importance of treatment for people with Anxiety and other mental disorders because research about the effectiveness of therapy shows us that those who undergo therapy are more likely to improve with a lower risk of relapse (Myers, 2014).

Ryzen Benson's curator insight, December 8, 10:55 AM

This here is a prime example of the importance of family member's involvement with those affected by a psychological disorder. When disorders go untreated, they bear potentially harmful outcomes.

 

1. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a disorder in which an individual feels repetitive and unnatural urges in everyday life. When receiving these urges, it causes the individual to feel the need to perform an action to accommodate for the urges (Meyers, 2014)

 

2. Adam Lanza suffered from many psychological disorders including OCD. However he lacked sufficient treatment, stated by the scoop. Today’s most effective methods in treatment of OCD are prescribed medication (Hollands, Edson, Tompson & Comer, 2014). The State of Connecticut Report strongly advised Lanza's mother to take action towards Lanza's lack of social incorporation. Psychological treatments for obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) are increasingly aimed at improving outcomes by directly incorporating family members to address family disruption, dysfunction, or symptom accommodation (Hollands, Edson, Tompson & Comer, 2014).

The scoop stated that she failed to give Lanza his essential medication which only caused further problems. Lanza's health issues, lack of treatment, and infatuation for shooting, deaths, and deadly weapons were only a catastrophe waiting to happen.

 

3. Gender is an interesting thought in the topic of mass shootings. Seldom or never, do you hear of female mass shootings. It would be interesting to analyze the prevalence of female mass-shooters.
