The Aftermath staff decided to post the following links because they provide some useful information about psychopathy.  In addition, the links introduce readers to, which provides an online free American law library, a collection containing many papers about the American legal system and law.

However, we note that one of the links listed here raises the question of whether psychopathic individuals might be considered less responsible for their criminal actions than nonpsychopaths due to the specific nature of their mental illness.  We at Aftermath do not take a stand on this issue.  We offer these links to individuals who may be interested in reading a variety of points of view.

From NIMH:

If you are thinking about harming yourself or attempting suicide, tell someone who can help right away:

  • Call your doctor’s office.
  • Call 911 for emergency services.
  • Go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
  • Call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) to be connected to a trained counselor at a suicide crisis center nearest you.

Ask a family member or friend to help you make these calls or take you to the hospital.


If you have a family member or friend who is suicidal, do not leave him or her alone. Try to get the person to seek help immediately from an emergency room, physician, or mental health professional. Take seriously any comments about suicide or wishing to die. Even if you do not believe your family member or friend will actually attempt suicide, the person is clearly in distress and can benefit from your help in receiving mental health treatment.
