Back in person for the first time in three years!
Overdose deaths are up. Suicides are up. Staffing shortages are up. Staff burnout is up. It’s a challenging time for incarcerated people, as well as leaders and health care staff of correctional institutions.
About 37 percent of people in prison have a history of mental health problems, according to a 2017 report from the U.S. Department of Justice. More than 24 percent have been previously diagnosed with major depressive order, 17 percent with bipolar disorder, 13 percent with a personality disorder and 12 percent with post-traumatic stress disorder. The numbers are even higher for people in jail, where one-third have been previously diagnosed with major depressive disorder and almost one-quarter with bipolar disorder.
