Mental Health & Incarceration

In many counties across North Carolina, jails have more adults with mental illness than psychiatric hospitals. And they tend to stay longer and have a higher rate of recidivism. We look at the impact of the state’s only multi-county effort to address this problem. Generous support for this series is provided by UNC-School of Government and Civic Federal Credit Union.
