The mental health charity Together has joined forces with criminal justice and health agencies to produce a new mental health guide on how to work effectively with the disproportionate number of people with mental health problems in the criminal justice system.
Linda Bryant, a forensic psychologist at Together, is the lead author and heads up the charity's Forensic Mental Health Practitioner Service. She comments: 'The identification and signposting of people with mental health problems into the right care and treatment is possible at any stage of their journey through the criminal justice system, and the people working within it have a key role to play in this process.'
