Occurence of psychiatric disorder in a county jail population.

Abstract

The authors report on a year's experience in providing psychiatric services in a county jail setting. Of 545 inmates evaluated, 22% were diagnosed as psychotic and 23% had a history of long-term or multiple hospitalizations. The authors discuss the implications of these data in terms of the problem of providing adequate psychiatric care for such a population.
