INCARCERATING THE MENTALLY ILL


INCARCERATING THE MENTALLY ILL = FUEL for MASS Incarceration. DEMAND Treatment NOT Incarceration for the Mentally Ill.

Justice Fellowship believes that successful treatment of mentally ill offenders entails quality medical attention; trained prison staff; universal, performance-based prison health care standards that mirror those outside prisons; separate facilities to protect the mentally ill from abuse; and using community or family-based rehabilitation programs in lieu of correctional institutions when possible.
