My fiance is in a regional correctional facility in Mississippi. He is not handling this well at all. He talks frequently of suicide. He needs help and he knows he needs help. The only problem is that if he does get help, like anti-depressants, or pyschiatric counseling, his medical status will be changed. If his medical status gets changed then he cannot be kept at a regional facility. He will have to be moved to a state facility. There are only three state facilitys in Mississippi. They are all very very dangerous. Stephen has never been around people who were in jail or around a jail environment and he has always been a good guy in the community. Inmates pick up on this and set out to steal, cheat, beat up, or kill him. He is safe where he is at and has a job tutoring a GED class. He doesn't want to leave there. So it looks like his only options are to be safe and very mentally unstable or be in danger and be mentally stable. It's a no win situation. Any advice? He has been in a little over a year and has a little over five more to go. This place will kill him if something doesn't change.
