Mental Health Wales criminal justice special issue now online

The Winter edition of the Mental Health Wales journal is now online and it’s a criminal justice special. The journal includes an interview with campaigner Jo Roberts about her new “Survival Guide” for people with a mental illness in contact with the Criminal Justice System, plus news of a criminal justice seminar to identify key issues and solutions.

This issue of the journal also includes “Jo’s Action Plan”, a report by Jo Roberts following a summer-long “Reducing Risk, Achieving Recovery” action research project. The report is based on feedback from over 300 service users, carers and interested professionals and identifies key actions to address the problems faced by people with a mental illness in the criminal justice system.
