Presentation Type

Paper

Abstract

The majority of the population immediately think of “criminal” or “solitary confinement”. However, the prison population is made up of people who were swept up by policy implementation that was used as a form of social control. This systematic literature review explores the relationship between U.S. prisons and mental health using four main themes: the history of US prisons, race in prison, gender in prison, and mental health in prison.
