Abstract:

"The page report, 'Double Punishment: Inadequate Conditions for Prisoners with Psychosocial Disabilities in France' documents the lack of adequate mental health care and appropriate conditions for prisoners with psychosocial disabilities. The situation is exacerbated by overcrowding, stigma, and isolation, Human Rights Watch found. A shortage of mental health professionals in many prisons means that appointments are infrequent and often, brief and limited to prescribing medication. The lack of adequate conditions and care also results in difficult working conditions for prison staff"--Publisher's description.
