In 2010, Jamison was conferred with an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters from the University of St Andrews in recognition of all her life's work. In May 2011, The General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church, New York, made her a Doctor of Divinity honoris causa at its annual Commencement. In 2017 Jamison was elected a Corresponding Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, her latest book, Robert Lowell: Setting the River on Fire was a Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Biography in 2018. Her book Manic-Depressive Illness, first published in 1990 and co-authored with psychiatrist Frederick K. Goodwin is considered a classic textbook on bipolar disorder; the Acknowledgements section states that Goodwin "received unrestricted educational grants to support the production of this book from Abbott, AstraZeneca, Bristol Meyers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly and Sanofi", but that although Jamison has "received occasional lecture honoraria from AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly" she "has received no research support from any pharmaceutical or biotechnology company" and donates her royalties to a non-profit foundation.

Her seminal works among laypeople are her memoir An Unquiet Mind, which details her experience with severe mania and depression, Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide, providing historical and cultural responses to suicide, as well as the relationship between mental illness and suicide. In Night Falls Fast, Jamison dedicates a chapter to American public policy and public opinion as it relates to suicide, her second memoir, Nothing Was the Same, examines her relationship with her second husband, the psychiatrist Richard Jed Wyatt, Chief of the Neuropsychiatry Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health until his death in 2002. In her study Exuberance: The Passion for Life, she cites research that suggests that 15 percent of people who could be diagnosed as bipolar may never become depressed, she mentions President Theodore Roosevelt as an example. Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament is Jamison's exploration of how bipolar disorder can run in artistic or high-achieving families.

As an example, she cites his relatives. Jamison wrote An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness in part to help clinicians see what patients find helpful in therapy. J. Wesley Boyd, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychiatry at Tufts University's School of Medicine, wrote, "Jamison's description illustrates the importance of being present for our patients and not trying to soothe them with platitudes or promises of a better future." Jamison has said she is an "exuberant" person who longs for peace and tranquility but in the end prefers "tumultuousness coupled to iron discipline" to a "stunningly boring life." In An Unquiet Mind, she concluded: I long ago abandoned the notion of a life without storms, or a world without dry and killing seasons. Life is too complicated, too changing, to be anything but what it is, and I am, by nature, too mercurial to be anything but wary of the grave unnaturalness involved in any attempt to exert too much control over uncontrollable forces. There will always be propelling, disturbing elements, they will be there until, as Lowell put it, the watch is taken from the wrist.

It is, at the end of the day, the individual moments of restlessness, of bleakness, of strong persuasions and maddened enthusiasms, that inform one's life, change the nature and direction of one's work, give final meaning and color to one's loves and friendships. Jamison was born to Dr. Mar

Texas Department of Family and Protective Services

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is responsible for investigating charges of abuse, neglect or exploitation of children, elderly adults and adults with disabilities. Prior to its creation in 2004, the agency had been called the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services. According to the Texas Attorney General, DFPS is neither a juvenile nor an adult criminal justice agency; the Texas Juvenile Justice Department is the state juvenile justice agency, while the Texas Department of Criminal Justice is the adult justice agency. The agency is headquartered at the John H. Winters Human Services Center at 701 West 51st Street in Austin; the DFPS undertakes five major tasks: Adult protective services Child protective services Child care licensing Prevention and early intervention Statewide intake It was created effective February 1, 2004 by House Bill 2292 of the 78th Texas Legislature as the first new agency in a major reorganization of Texas's health and human services system.

The change was made to help "consolidate organizational structures and functions, eliminate duplicative administrative systems, streamline processes and procedures that guide the delivery of health and human services to Texans." DFPS has a documented history of issues with children placed in its care. A 2004 report by Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn was critical of the Texas foster care system. A follow-up statement with continued criticisms of the Texas foster care system was made in 2006 by the Comptroller and renewed a request to have the governor create a Family and Protective Services Crisis Management Team; the Comptroller stated that in fiscal 2003, 2004 and 2005 30, 38 and 48 foster children died in the state's care. The number of foster children in the state's care increased 24 percent to 32,474 in Fiscal 2005, while the number of deaths increased 60 percent. Compared to the general population, a child is four times more to die in the Texas foster care system. In 2004, about 100 children were treated for poisoning from medications.

A 12-year-old boy died in December 2005, suffocated while being restrained from behind by an employee of the facility. Another died May 30, after drowning in a creek during a bicycle outing. A three-year-old was treated for poisoning from an mind-altering anti-psychotic drug; the Comptroller's office found significant financial problems in a 2005 audit of DFPS. Gene Grounds of Victim Relief Ministries reported no hysteria or crying children from children removed from the ranch, he commended CPS workers as exhibiting compassion and caring concern. John Kight, chairman of an organization that provided mental health workers to assist FLDS children and mothers from the YFZ Ranch recounted to the Texas governor's office that DFPS' Child Protective Services had seemed out of control at the temporary shelters, describing "how abusive CPS was and how they've trampled all over their rights." One of the workers who assisted at the shelter remarked that "wonderful loving women and children are being treated like convicts in a concentration camp by the state of Texas".

Another wrote "I have never seen women and children treated this poorly, not to mention their civil rights being disregarded in this manner" after assisting at the emergency shelter. "The CPS workers were rude to the mothers and children, yelled at them for tryin to wave to friends.. threatened them with arrest if they did not stop waving" Workers took notes on everything the "guests" said. Some compared it to a concentration camp. By contrast, one worker noted the children were "amazingly clean, healthy, well behaved and self-confident," while the mothers were "consistently calm and loving with their children." Both the Court of Appeals for the Third District and the Texas Supreme Court found that CPS improperly removed all the children and ordered them returned to their parents. Caregivers who were forbidden to discuss conditions working with CPS produced unsigned written reports expressed anger at the CPS traumatizing the children, for disregarding rights of mothers who appeared to be parents of healthy, well-behaved children.

CPS threatened some workers with arrest, the entire mental health support was dismissed the second week due to being "too compassionate." Workers believed poor sanitary conditions at the shelter allowed respiratory infections and chicken pox to spread. After being removed from the temporary shelters the FLDS children were placed in 16 group shelters and foster homes. Minors with children were sent to the Seton Home in San Antonio, older boys to Cal Farley's Boys Ranch in Amarillo; some parents stated on the Today Show that they were unable to visit their boys due to a shortage of CPS staff. Newspapers released names of facilities caring for the FLDS children that have requested donations of specific items, help or cash; the DFPS has been the subject of a recent lawsuit alleging, among other complaints, that foster children are inappropriately placed in restrictive institutional settings. In 2011, Children's Rights, a New York-based national advocacy group working to reform child welfare systems, filed a federal class action lawsuit in the U.

S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas alleging the DFPS fails to either return children who've been in foster care at least a year safely to their families or to find them safe and permanent new families, they claim that after one year, or a maximum of 18 months, without reunifying children with their birth families or finding them adoptive homes, children become permane

Gathering Place (Tulsa park)

Gathering Place is a public open space in Tulsa, Oklahoma. First announced in 2014, called The Gathering Place and A Gathering Place for Tulsa, it is centered on the east bank of the Arkansas River south of the Downtown area and west of the historic Maplewood Historic District, an upscale residential area; the brainchild of Tulsa multibillionaire and philanthropist, George Kaiser, "Gathering Place" was designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh. This public-private partnership covers 100 acres of land and as of September 2018, has cost about $465 million to construct; the main attractions are the Chapman Adventure Playground, the Williams Lodge, a boathouse, splash playground, great lawn, outdoor sports courts, a skate park, a wetland pond and garden, numerous trails among other locations. There are plenty of activities for adults alike. Tulsa’s Gathering Place was named the Best New Attraction in the nation in 2018 through the USA Today Readers’ Choice awards. In 2019, Gathering Place made Time Magazine's list of The World's 100 Greatest Places of 2019, National Geographic's list of 12 Mind-Bending Playgrounds Around the World, the American Planning Association's list of six great public spaces in America.

According to the Tulsa World, Gathering Place officials had planned for the facility to attract a million visitors per year. The actual attendance for the first ten days of operation was 155,000; the two-day grand opening attracted about 55,000 visitors. The George F. Kaiser Family Foundation, supported by several corporations and local philanthropies provided the construction funds deeded the facility to the River Parks Authority, which will provide public oversight for the park; the Kaiser Family Foundation created a $100 million endowment to support maintenance of the park for the next 99 years. Gathering Place supports multiple Sport Court attractions on the property. Individuals seeking out a fun game of basketball, street soccer, or street hockey will find venues for them here. Parking is conveniently located court-side where there is space for both organized and casual players, as well as fans and spectators; the sports courts are all equipped with night-lights to allow play to continue after dark.

Gathering Place officials have implemented a policy banning individuals from carrying or using firearms in the park. According to George Kaiser, this is a legal policy because the facility is considered owned. However, Second Amendment advocates say that it is a public facility because its partnership with public agencies make it public. On opening day, Tulsa Police officers, acting as security, turned away a private citizen, carrying a firearm. On the next day, the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association held a rally at Gathering Place, where the leader told the gathering that,'“ are going to come into compliance with state law one way or the other. We ask them to do it so we don’t have to force them to.”In October, Tulsa's Litigation Division Division manager, Gerry Bender, told the press that Tulsa Police will not arrest people in the park who violate the park's no gun policy because the city fears that arrests would be challenged. He added, "“We maintain the legal authority to enforce all ordinances and State laws applicable to private spaces open to the public.”

Groundbreaking on the anchor project for phase two, Discovery Lab, occurred in February of 2020. The $47 million dollar, 50,000 square foot Discovery Lab will be a hands-on museum featuring classrooms, a café, grand plaza and 300-seat amphitheater, it is expected to be completed by the late summer of 2021. City officials have announced that they will begin construction of a new pedestrian bridge across the Arkansas River as soon as possible after the Phase I opening; this will replace an existing pedestrian bridge, designated as "structurally deficient". Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates won a design contest to implement the project, which will be known as "The Gateway." Few details have been released publicly. Tulsa River Parks Authority said that the project has been estimated to be completed three years after construction begins, cost the city $24.4 million. The unusually heavy rains along the Arkansas River caused flooding after it forced major releases from Keystone Dam; this raised the water level downstream above flood stage in many areas and threatened to damage the new Gathering Place, which had opened in the preceding fall, had to close for a week, until the flood had begun to subside.

Gathering Place authorities began to assess the plan repairs. The east bank of the river experienced light damage, with water covering two of the five sports courts south of 31st street. After hosing off mud and debris, inspectors found no significant damage to the playing surfaces. However, the flood caused some washouts along the East Bank Trail. At 58th Street and Riverside Drive, it washed away a light stanchion. Matt Meyer, Executive Director of the Tulsa River Parks Authority, told the press that the washout showed a need to install cable-concrete type bank reinforcement, he noted that a similar project the city had done two years earlier had cost about $1,000 per linear foot.
