Video of the day – Trapped: Mental Illness in America’s Prisons

The continuous withdrawal of mental health funding has turned jails and prisons across the U.S. into the default mental health facilities.

Jenn Ackerman‘s documentary takes us inside the Correctional Psychiatric Treatment Unit of the Kentucky State Reformatory to see how a state is meeting the needs of the mentally ill.

This is a student’s work btw. Jenn answered a few questions about the process of the project in his blog.
