The Convergence of the Mentally Disordered and the Jail Population.
Snow, William H.; Briar, Katharine Hooper
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v15 n1 p147-62 1990
Addresses the prevalence and implications of the mentally ill, developmentally disabled, substance abuser, and other mentally impaired offenders in the jail system. Argues for more systematic attention by service providers in the community and criminal justice personnel to the disabling conditions that may precipitate and reinforce criminal behavior. Recommends differential responses to these special needs or "pseudo-offenders." (Author/PVV)
