Introduction:

Since many mental institutions are closing, prisons are becoming more populated with individuals with mental health issues. Treating mentally ill individuals in prison is very important, in particular the environment and the treatment that is provided. If those with mental health issues are not treated appropriately, their symptoms could worsen, and this could violate their rights.

There are, however, problems when it comes to treating seriously mentally ill inmates. One issue is the lack of training of correctional officers as it relates to mental health. Another important issue is the refusal of treatment by the inmates. The refusal of treatment could be caused by any number of factors: inmates may lack awareness of their own illness, inmates may not think they are sick, et cetera. The right to refuse treatment raises questions of laws and ethics.
