The content is good, gives insight to the mentally ill who are incarcerated. It would be good to see current data, as the numbers mentioned are from the late 90's. This would be a good introduction to educating about the effects of closing mental health hospitals.

The material offers great incite on the criminal justice system and inmates who have mental disabilities. I agree with Paul regarding accessing the material from the link he has posted.
