The first of its kind, Women’s Mental Health Issues Across the Criminal Justice System is dedicated to giving the “most invisible” offenders in today’s criminal justice system–mentally ill adolescent girls and women–a face and a voice. The book is organized around the subsystems of the U.S. criminal justice system. Each section highlights mental health research and policy issues and focuses on the impediments to treatment and service delivery as well as the model programs, assessments, and intervention processes that offer hope within and across the system.
