    In the 1970’s deinstitutionalization began, leaving many with a mental illness or intellectual disability in need of housing in the community. One of the places persons with a mental illness are overrepresented is in the criminal justice system (Kennedy-Hendricks, Huskamp, Rutkow & Berry, 2016, pg. 1077). Persons in the prison system have higher rates of serious mental illnesses compared to those in the community (Prins, 2014). Prins found higher rates of post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, dysthymia, bipolar disorder, social anxiety, panic, and schizophrenia in prison populations compared to community populations. A large number of US prisoners need mental health care. A case study of inmates in Texas found that approximately 15% to 24% of inmates reported symptoms of a psychotic disorder, 43% to 54% of inmates reported symptoms of mania, and 23% to 30% of inmates reported symptoms of major depression. Unfortunately, lack of synchronized care among criminal justice…
