Mental health in prisons


The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee has published Mental health in prisons.

The report finds high levels of self-inflicted deaths and self-harm incidents in prisons and the system for improving the mental health of prisoners isn’t working as it should. 

Efforts to improve the mental health of those in prison so far have been poorly co-ordinated, and information is still not shared across the organisations involved, and not even between community and prison GP services. 



During the COVID-19 pandemic how have you been able to maintain contact with your family or friends who live in residential care?
