Models of Mental Health Service Delivery to Correctional Institutions
The mentally disordered offender falls into the “no man's land” between prison and mental health systems. A number of reasons are given to explain why mental health service to this special group is in crisis again, and to lay the base for understanding the advantages and disadvantages of five different models of service delivery. The authors conclude by favoring small psychiatric units attached to major prisons.
