Reports reveal an increase in the number of individuals with serious mental illness in jails, prisons and forensic hospitals. Despite the wide-ranging and devastating consequences of this 'criminalization' of mental illness, there remains a lack of information on the subject as well as on the provision of care for these patients. This important new book fills a gap in the literature by examining topics such as: the history and policy factors related to criminalization; original research on forensic populations; pharmacological and psychological treatment strategies; and principles and guidelines for diversion out of the criminal justice system. Contributions from leading experts in the field further our understanding of this important subject, offering advice on how to provide humane care for patients. A must have for all mental health clinicians including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation therapists, and mental health nurses. A useful tool for mental health administrators and policy makers.

Covers the topic of criminalization from social, research and clinical perspectives enabling the reader to understand the origin and scope of the problem, as well as the current state-of-the-art for clinical intervention
nternational experts provide a comprehensive, global understanding of the topic alongside original research projects that contribute quantitative data
Provides guidelines for clinicians for treating complex forensic patients in the community and the inclusion of psychopharmacological strategies is ideal for prescribers looking for practical ways to support decriminalization
