Mental Illness and Recidivism: Assessing the Relationship Among Probationers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Offenders with mental illness (OMIs) present unique risks (e.g., treatment noncompliance) and needs (e.g., homelessness) to criminal justice officials. Three studies have demonstrated that OMIs are more likely than non-disordered offenders to fail on community supervision (Dauphinot, 1996; Eno Louden et al., in press; Porporino & Motiuk, 2005). By systematically screening a large sample of probationers (N=2934) for mental illness, this study examines the extent to which (a) mental disorder places probationers at risk for probation revocation, and (b) failure is related to lower system tolerance of OMIs (technical violations) or greater OMI risk (new offenses), compared to nondisordered offenders.
