For me, this article raises so many more questions than it addresses.  Here are a few pressing ones:

-It's great to hear about a transition program for inmates with mental illness, but confusing to hear that the program can only accommodate 15 individuals at a time, given that the article notes that "as many as one-third of the jail’s 8,600 inmates were mentally ill."  Is this a pilot program that  Dr. Jones Tapia is working to expand?  I hope so!
-The article notes that inmates with mental illness are more likely to be abused by other inmates and COs, including the abuse of solitary confinement.  Is  Dr. Jones Tapia looking to phase out the inhumane and ineffective use of solitary confinement?  I hope so!

Dr. Nneka Jones Tapia, a clinical psychologist, was chosen to run Cook County Jail, underscoring how much the nation’s prisons have become holding centers for the mentally ill.

So I don't know much about youthful narcissism. But how predictive is it of a Narcassism PD diagnosis? Is this true narcassism or self centeredness?

Is this really what women still have to face in 2015?

This is an interesting spin on an old idea. Given that these machines are set up at places like the salvation army, why not simply put the books on a shelf behind the counter and have an employee mediate the free transaction? I understand that they're looking to prevent someone from easily taking all of the books, but why spend money on a vending machine? 
You’ve probably heard the term ‘food desert’ – it’s used to describe areas, typically urban, where it’s difficult to access quality, affordable food – but some areas are ‘book deserts’ too. These are neighborhoods where kids may have access to libraries but lack the resources required for building a home library of their own. Studies have shown …

// The movie gets some things wrong, and felt like it devolved into mind-themed gags pretty quickly. But the critiques of the film all seem to be overlooking the really important thing the film gets right: that the mind is made of a collection of cooperating agents, each with its own agenda and interests. The person you are emerges from how these agents interact and engage each other.

This basic premise, of the mind as a multi-agent system, is perhaps the most important metaphysical principle to understand. The premise runs counter to views that hold the mind to be singular, univocal, and fundamentally unified. Such views are incorrect, and yet remain the dominant philosophical view of the mind. Insofar as "Inside Out" corrects the unified view, it represents significant metaphysical progress in the public's understanding of the machinery of mind.

Once we accept the multiagent premise, it's simply an argument over which agents are involved and what they do. The emotions probably aren't the primary agents of the mind, but it certainly makes the premise of multiagency that much easier to grasp for the public. So on my view, Inside Out gets more of the metaphysics right than wrong.

It's also just a good movie.
