CRANSTON — An absence of strong statewide leadership and a fragmented, underfunded public mental-health system have resulted in hundreds of people with mental illness being imprisoned at the Adult Correctional Institutions.
The very term “mental illness” carries such a stigma that even acknowledging this headline out loud was a risk. The euphemistic or politically correct term for a mood or personality disorder might be “carries a diagnosis.” But any way you look at it, the issues of mental illness in the workplace are real and the number of people who are affected is great.
From depression, anxiety, ADHD and dyslexia to OCD and bipolar disorder—a great many of the individuals we work with – possibly even ourselves—are dealing with at least one of these issues, and due to “co-morbidity” – the conditions that tend to occur in pairs or multiples—there are many individuals dealing with more.

Philosophers and scientists have long puzzled over where human imagination comes from. In other words, what makes humans able to create art, invent tools, think scientifically and perform other incredibly diverse behaviors?
The answer, Dartmouth researchers conclude in a new study, lies in a widespread neural network -- the brain's "mental workspace" -- that consciously manipulates images, symbols, ideas and theories and gives humans the laser-like mental focus needed to solve complex problems and come up with new ideas.
Their findings, titled "Network structure and dynamics of the mental workspace," appear the week of Sept. 16, 2013, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
"Our findings move us closer to understanding how the organization of our brains sets us apart from other species and provides such a rich internal playground for us to think freely and creatively," says lead author Alex Schlegel , a graduate student in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. "Understanding these differences will give us insight into where human creativity comes from and possibly allow us to recreate those same creative processes in machines."
Scholars theorize that human imagination requires a widespread neural network in the brain, but evidence for such a "mental workspace" has been difficult to produce with techniques that mainly study brain activity in isolation. Dartmouth researchers addressed the issue by asking: How does the brain allow us to manipulate mental imagery? For instance, imagining a bumblebee with the head of a bull, a seemingly effortless task but one that requires the brain to construct a totally new image and make it appear in our mind's eye.
