Psychiatry in Prisons provides a comprehensive overview of the history, problems and development of psychiatric health care in prisons, focusing particularly on the UK. The contributors tackle a broad range of issues, from familiar mental health issues such as substance misuse, self-injury and health screening to complex legal, moral and philosophical dilemmas. It also draws comparisons with the US correctional mental health system and the delivery of mental health services in New Zealand prisons.
This comprehensive guide is an indispensible resource for psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, prison medical officers, probation officers, prison discipline staff and any other professionals concerned with mental health care in custodial settings.
Bringing together a number of practitioners and academics as authors, this handbook addresses a wide variety of aspects of psychiatry in prisons... Psychiatry in Prisons will likely prove an invaluable resource for forensic psychiatrists, students of forensic psychiatry and practitioners and academics with an interest in the mentally ill who are incarcerated.
