mental health and criminal justice today

You will select 1 of the five topics for your Discussion Board (DB). Please read the instructions for the DB assignments carefully because they are different from your other classes that you have had DBs in.

Selecting one of the five topics, you will be required to submit a 300-word minimum main topic posting. Your initial posting should be analytical, persuasive, or reflective in nature. Keep in mind that you will be choosing a different topic for your Individual Project (IP). Please add your references to the main topic posting (required). You are encouraged to do research on the topic from other resources. You will be responding to a minimum of three classmates for this assignment. Each classmate’s response should be a minimum of 100 words per response. Your option is to respond to postings that concern your main topic selection, or you may respond to postings from classmates that have to do with one of the other two topics.
