Extract

The number of incarcerated women is rapidly rising, increasing 6% nationally over the past ten years. Whereas men and women with mental illness are twice as likely as persons without mental illness to return to jail within six months, the prevalence of mental health problems among incarcerated women (31%) is more than twice that of men. Evidence is limited concerning approaches that reduce jail recidivism for inmates with mental illness, although there has been some success with models incorporating peer mentoring and principles of respect, empathy, and connectedness. In addition to behavioral dysfunction, confounding factors for mental health clients obtaining and maintaining jobs are inadequate housing, lack of transportation, and poor interpersonal skills.
