Frontline: The Released
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."
