Default Mental health in prisons

There is not enough mental health services in the prison system. For a great documentary on the mentally ill leaving prison, watch "Released". A great documentary.

It's not just that there aren't enough mental health services in prison, though that's doubtless true. It's that prison is itself the largest mental health service in many countries - that is, there are more people with diagnosed (let alone undiagnosed) mental health issues in jail than there are in any other kind of facility or treatment, where we spend a lot more money on each of them and get worse results. This could itself well be termed insane behavior - but by the system, not by the prisoners!
