This site contains information about the problems related to the release of the mentally ill from correctional facilities into our communities. Included on this site are links to the actual program, videos containing updates, discussion boards, information about a model facility that one community is using to combat the cycle of release/re-arrest, along with additional readings on this issue. According to the authors of this site, 2/3 of the mentally ill who are released from our jails and prisons will be re-arrested within 18 months. This program is related to and follows some of the mentally ill offenders who were interviewed for the previous program produced by Frontline, "The New Asylums."
I show the New Asylums’ in my introduction to psychology class currently. This follow up is excellent. Students recognize the challenges and burden on the system of incarcerating the mentally ill upon watching The New Asylums. For some, the answer to this problem is to release the incarcerated mentally ill and give support in the community, but, as freshman and sophomores, they do not understand what that looks like and the challenges that are faced which lead to individuals being incarcerated again. This next installment follow release of those incarcerated and shows clearly that there are no easy answers. It calls for solutions and consideration of a population oft overlooked and can challenge students to think and act in response to the rights and needs of the mentally ill in their communities.
I am only able to get the new asylums through a subscription service. Will this be the same?
