Mental Health Treatment in the Federal Prison System: An Outcome Study: A Reprint from “Federal Probaton”
M.A. Conroy (au)
Data substantiate the common belief that the prevalance of mental illness is substantially higher among prison inmates than in the community at large. A number of critical reviews have described the inadequacies found in the treatment of mentally ill inmates. Descriptions of programs, & proposed programs to alleviate the problem are available. Absent for the most part, however, are data on the actual outcome of treatment provided. By 1985 there were 3 mental health units for male inmates within the Fed. prison system. This article discusses the referral to & treatment of prisoners in these units. Patients are of all security & custody levels, ranging from minimum security camp inmates to the most maximum security transfers. The study concludes that on the whole the data are highly positive, indicating that a large percentage of those receiving services have gone on to function adequately in a regular correctional environment.
