Summary What began as a good-intentioned separation of criminals and people with mental illness in the late eighteenth century has ended in mass incarceration of individuals with psychiatric and substance use disorders. The population of incarcerated individuals with psychiatric illness continues to grow in the wake of deinstitutionalization, scant community resources, and a changing legal landscape. Many factors determine how and why individuals with mental illness are treated in correctional settings as opposed to community settings.
In the incarcerated population, prevalence estimates of serious mental illness (SMI) range from 9% to 20% (Beck & Maruschak, 2000; Diamond, Wang, Holzer, Thomas, & Cruser, 2001; Regier, Farmer, Rae, Locke, Keith, Judd, & Goodwin, 1990; Steadman, Osher, Robbins, Case, & Samuels, 2009) compared to 6% in the community (Kessler, Chiu, Demler, & Walters, 2005). More astonishingly, in 2005, more than three times as many persons with serious mental illness in the United States were located in jails and prisons than in hospitals (Torrey, Kennard, Eslinger, Lamb, & Pavle, 2010).
