According to the Prison Reform Trust, 10% of men and 30% of women have a psychiatric admission before they enter prison. Personality disorders are most prevalent amongst prisoners – 62% of male and 57% of female sentenced prisoners have a personality disorder. Prisoners also experience anxiety, depression and suicide attempts are at a much higher rate than in the general population, especially amongst women. The growing prison population means that there are now more people in prison with mental illnesses than ever before. Join Ujala, Meanha and our special guest Shamoly Begum who has a background in mental health and rehabilitation as they discuss these issues and more.
