Description

Many inmates in Kentucky's county jail are not receiving care for mental illnesses, leaving them to suffer or even die. At least 17 people killed themselves during a 30 month period from Jan. 1, 1999, and June 30, 2001. Less than six ever saw a mental health professional. These mentally ill inmates have limited access to hospital beds and employees in the prisons have little to no training with the mentally ill.
