Mental health and the criminal justice system: a social work perspective

Mental health and the criminal justice system: a social work perspective

Cummins, Ian, 1961- author

This study examines the experiences of people with mental health problems across all stages of the criminal justice system (CJS) and points of contact - police, courts and prisons - between the CJS and people with mental health problems. Providing a clearly written, comprehensive introduction to the main themes in this field, it also has a clear critical edge highlighting the failings in the areas of penal and social policy that have resulted in increasing numbers of people with mental health problems being criminalised
