Psychiatry in Prisons: A Comprehensive Handbook
With the closing of public mental health facilities under the tender auspices of neoliberalism, prisons have become the primary disposal site for former patients who need more than community care, and interest has risen in providing mental health services in the prisons. The underlying notion here is that prison psychiatry is a specialty of its own and should be taught as such. Psychiatrists and psychologists who have worked in prison situations around the anglophone world here discuss such aspects as health screening in prisons, the young offender, people with intellectual disabilities in prison, consent to treatment, the lifer system in England and Wales, death in custody, contexts and approaches to the delivery of mental health services in New Zealand prisons, and prison language as an organizational defense against anxiety.
