Jailing people with mental illness creates huge burdens on law enforcement, corrections and state and local. More than 10 million people are imprisoned worldwide, and the prevalence of all investigated mental disorders is higher in prisoners than in the general population. Although the extent to which prison increases the incidence of mental disorders is uncertain, considerable evidence suggests low rates of identification and treatment of psychiatric disorders. Prisoners are also at increased risk.

  Over half of the prisoners interviewed reported multiple mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, anger management, concentration issues, insomnia and an increased risk of .   Psychological disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder and trauma-related disorders, are rampant among inmates, and mental illness itself is a risk factor for landing in jail.
