Too many mentally disordered offenders are ending up in prison when they should not be there at all. It is rare that their problems are spotted before sentence and unless their behaviour is disruptive, their problems may not be recognised or treated in prison. The problem is compounded by the fact that many of this disadvantaged group of offenders are also homeless and they will commit 'nuisance' offences with an expressed intention to obtain the shelter, warmth, food, and so forth which results from being detained in policy custody. Argues that few prisons are equipped to help mentally disordered offenders and that they are not receiving the treatment and services they are entitled to. Also provides examples of good practice and support for these prisoners.
