Inside Out: the case for improving mental health care across the criminal justice system

By Ben Ullmann, Charlie Brooker; Edited by Gavin Lockhart

The story of offenders with mental illness is not confined to prisons. There are a number of other places where offenders with mental illnesses come into contact with the criminal justice system, including police custody, the courts and probation.

Inside Out focuses on contacts at these “non-prison” locations, outlining their limitations in dealing with the mentally disordered, and using examples of good practice from the UK and abroad to suggest improvements.
