Mental Illness and Offending and Victimization in Prison

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



Abstract:

We examine the relationship between mental illness and offending and victimization in prison. Our analyses are based on nationally representative data from the Survey of Inmates in State and Federal Correctional Facilities, 2004. Inmates were asked whether they were written up for violence and other offenses while in prison and whether someone had injured them intentionally. They were also asked about whether they had experienced delusions and paranoia, and whether they were diagnosed for psychosis, severe depression, or other illnesses. Our interest is in examining (1) whether mental illness, particularly irrational thoughts of being under threat, are associated with violent infractions vs. other types of infractions; (2) whether mental illness leads to victimization; and (3) whether any tendency for mentally ill inmates to commit violent infractions is due to their victimization.
