Prevalence of Common Mental Disorders and Associated Factors among Prisoners

Posted on

Prevalence of mental disorders among prisoners is quite high as related to people living in society with their family and friends. As the prisoners are bound to stay in jails and live with extensive surveillance, security controls in the absence of ordinary social interaction and abnormal environmental stimulus. They are more likely to be demoralized and victimized by the community. It is estimated that roughly 1 in 3 inmates suffers from serious mental health issues.
