Effective screening of mentally-ill defendants in the criminal court system requires cooperation between legal professionals in the criminal justice system (CJS), and health and social care workers in the mental-health service (MHS). This interagency working, though, can be problematic, as recognized in the Bradley inquiry that recommended joint training for MHS and CJS professionals. The aim of this study was to examine the experiences and attitudes of workers in the CJS and MHS to inform the d...

Aims: Court liaison services aim to reduce mental illness in prison through early treatment and/or diversion into care of defendants negotiating their court proceedings. However, liaison services may inadvertently contribute to gender inequalities in mental health in the prison system because women often do not access liaison services. This is attributed to services failing to recognize that women have different needs from men. To address this, it is essential that the needs of women in contact ...

Background/Rationale The prevalence of mental health issues in prison populations is exacerbated by ineffective screening for mental illness during earlier contact with the criminal justice system (CJS). Effective screening is reliant on cooperation between the CJS and mental health services. Interagency working has proved difficult in the past as might be expected of working between public services so distinct in expectations, priorities and working culture. Poor interprofessional working leads...
