APEAL Member Michael Martin Publishes on Diagnostic Errors in Correctional Facilities

Congratulations to PhD student Michael Martin, who published this month in the Journal of Correctional Health Care. His review, entitled “Diagnostic Error in Correctional Mental Health: Prevalence, Causes, and Consequences,” looked in depth at why diagnostic errors occur in jails and what are the implications on subsequent policies. Addressing questions like this help ensure cost-effective mental health services in correctional facilities and can help promote better outcomes for inmates with mental illness. Mental Health in Prisons
