One major source of stress in prison is being placed in solitary confinement. I myself was in for at least a year. Solitary confinement is almost gaurnteeded to make you mentally ill if not suicidal due to the extremly noisy and filthy enviroment. I think the filth hurt me the worst due to the fact that I was NEVER given a shower the ENTIRE YEAR I was in solitary. My life has changed for the worst due to the fact that being in solitary cause be to be diagnosed with P.T.S.D. because of nonstop nosie from both the guards and inmates.
An idea for educating my friends I came up with is; choose an subject, write the deffintition; 2 sentences about that subject, then write a paragraph or essay on what that subject means to you and how it can be used in every day life. Lastly, write an summary on what you have learned about what you have written.
