Justice Week: Mentally Ill and in Jail


In partnership with Public Square Media, we continue our special “Justice Week” series with a revealing look at life behind bars for New Yorkers suffering with mental illness. About 15% of the city’s jail population have reportedly been diagnosed with serious mental health problems. Should they be in jail or even under the New York City Department of Correction’s jurisdiction at all?
