Getting treatment:
Responsibility of MHP's assigned to regular institutions to recommend offenders for admission to RTC
Admission criteria:
Acute psychiatric illness, e.g psychosis
Chronic mental illness
Cognitive, cerebral deficits
In crisis e.g suicidal, chronic self harm
Treatment reserved for the most serious cases:
Other MH problems receive limited clinical attention
Insufficient capacity to treat all MDOs
Lack of services for female offenders
Crisis management rather than prevention:
revolving door syndrome
Stabilize MDO's
Released too soon from RTC's, quickly in crisis again.
Use of force to control MDOs
