About this book

It has long been known that the pathway through the criminal justice system for those with mental health needs is fraught with difficulty. This interdisciplinary collection explores key issues in mental health, crime and criminal justice, including: offenders' rights; intervention designs; desistance; health-informed approaches to offending and the medical needs of offenders; psychological jurisprudence, and; collaborative and multi-agency practice. 
This volume draws on the knowledge of professionals and academics working in this field internationally, as well as the experience of service users. It offers a solution-focused response to these issues, and promotes both equality and quality of experience for service users. It will be essential reading for practitioners, scholars and students with an interest in forensic mental health and criminal justice.

Reviews

“Mental Health, Crime and Criminal Justice (Winstone, 2016) is a refreshingly candid look at the challenges related to persons with mental illness(es). … this book is exceptionally well-edited; topics and voices cohere especially well for an edited volume. … the book remains accessible to a wider audience, with descriptions of some seemingly unfamiliar ideas. Additionally, the book, while coming out of the United Kingdom, discusses ideas in a way that renders them applicable to other national contexts as well.” (Kayla G. Jachimowski, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, clcjbooks.rutgers.edu, January, 2017)


'Criminal justice-based mental health services have been seriously grappling with internal and external pressures for many years. Various "reform" efforts have come and gone over time. Some have lingered; others have succeeded. For this valuable volume, Jane Winstone has gathered a knowledgeable international group of mental health and criminal justice scholars, researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and service-recipients. In more than a dozen articles, Winstone and her contributors present an experienced array of cogent insights, purposeful proscriptions, and sage advice that will improve day-to-day practice and program outcomes.' Russ Immarigeon, Editor, Pathways for Offender Reentry

'This is a unique and fascinating read and it's hard to imagine it going out of date for some considerable time. It contains a variety of topics drawn from quite different fields of knowledge to review the interface between criminal justice and mental health and propose solutions for the challenges faced. The issues covered include a thorough review of the intervention evidence base, psychological jurisprudence, desistance theory, trauma, and multi-agency collaboration. Winstone has done an excellent job in tying these varied themes together to produce a comprehensive text in this critical policy area.' - Graham Durcan, Associate Director, Criminal Justice Programme, Centre for Mental Health, UK
