2 December 2008

Continuity of care is vital in all areas of health care. For released prisoners with mental health problems it is especially important to help them get their lives back on track on the outside.

On the Outside finds that many released prisoners quickly lose touch with the services that are supposed to support them. Many prisoners do not know where they will be living on release. Some end up on relatives' sofas. Others go to hostels where they fear getting back into drug habits, or they end up on the streets.

Audience: commissioners, criminal justice agencies.
