Mental Health Services
Many inmates have mental health illnesses, and this can lead to recidivism. Inmates with mental health illnesses can also endanger correctional facility staff members and other inmates. Collaboration between the mental health staff and medical staff is vital in the holistic approach to the inmate’s treatment.
Mental health care is provided by psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse practitioners, nurses and social workers through community-based agencies and/or contractually by providers experienced in the field of correctional mental health.
