Lecture 19
Prisoners and Health
What to keep in mind for final from Lecture 18:
Adverse Child experiences—foster homes, abandonment, abuse
Pains of Desistance: dropping bad people in life; staying out of trouble after imprisonment;
generativity—doing things to better society (talking to schools)
Isolation
Resilience—what happened is big after the fact
Prison hierarchy—most serious offenders (child molesters) were hated by most of the
other criminals who were molested as children
Medication: prisoners were given things to keep them quiet and under control
**Bruce’s forensic science hospital (Royal) for the mentally ill—use this information to
relate to Jimmy’s story
Imprisonment and Health
- Greater proportion in prison is minorities
oYour race and socioeconomic status do play a role
- Racial differences in health outcomes
- Imprisonment=poorer health outcomes
oLess opportunities
oInfluenced by racism, stress, and stigma
oHigh rates of infectious diseases and mental illnesses (schizophrenia, anxiety,
PTSD)
But lower rates of some chronic illness like diabetes
- Only group who have a constitutional right to health care
oEveryone else have to pay for it themselves
oWhile in custody of state, they must get health care—but it’s extremely
limited
- People in prison are threatened still but more protected
- Health problems in prison stem out after prison and get worse
oNon-treatment of medical issues
oExposed to diseases and stress, contributors to poor health
Non-white are at a greater risk
oThere is a greater risk for the community when prisoners are released
- Large-scale structural shifts
oEx. Blacks are affected—family structure ruined
oFeminisation and juvinalisation of poverty—hand in hand with the war on
drugs
Black members of community are incarcerated and then there is only
one income and creates a worse life for children
Retreat for marriage—a sense of protection
