Abstract

Research has shown a correlation between high cases of mental illnesses and disorders and inmates in prison. Prisoners are highly susceptible to gaining mental health problems while incarcerated or come into the system with previous issues. The prison system is inadequately treating their illnesses, and thus increasing the number or prisoners being re-incarcerated. Legislation regarding availability of resources and solitary confinement needs to be changed in order to provide adequate care for prisoners.
