Post Women and Mental Health in Prison

Hi there, I am a counseling graduate student in New York and currently conducting research on the impact of the prison system on women's physical and mental health.

This includes women who are or have been in prison and women with loved ones in prison.

Some questions I have include:

What was your health like before your contact with the
criminal justice system (including both physical and mental)?

What is the emotional experience of being female in the system?

What experiences affected your health the most?

What health resources were made available to you?

Have you sought treatment for any adverse health outcomes? Why
or why not?

Do you feel your needs have been met? If not, where do you find that the attention to your needs was lacking?

If you have stories to share, please do so - no story is too big or too small. I am hoping to understand how mental health workers can better serve women who have been impacted by the prison system.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you....I believe you have chosen an important yet overlooked topic for your research. The number of women in prison (and county) is steadily rising. This increase creates the need for changes in policies. It also creates new voices that speak on incarcerated women's behalf.
