Update and Quest for Medical and Mental Health Care for Cornelius

An update on Cornelius:

Cornelius was able to make 2 short calls to his outside support. He has been locked up on "suicide watch" since 2 months. Cornelius has been eating for a couple days now. He cut 2 arteries and the captain order for 2 tourniquets to be put on him he said his hands are paralyzed. They will not give him medical treatment. 

Also he's been asking for mental health  treatment; they have not given him that. He said this solitary confinement is really getting to his head.

What you can do:

1) call or write to the warden and politely but insistently ask for the warden to see to it that Cornelius gets mental health AND medical treatment. Refer to Cornelius as "Cornelius Harris, ##99779-555":
