Description

Mariam Abdullah spent most of the last two years of her life in isolation in an Arizona prison. She was sent to Perryville Prison when she was 16, and spent months in solitary confinement for disciplinary reasons and was sent to suicide watch, where she was again isolated when officers felt she might harm herself. The story of a young immigrant who suffered and died in prison, reported by Type Investigations, HuffPost and CBS News, is a compelling case study of the shortcomings of our prison system and the ways in which it cares for the young and mentally ill.
