Born Jan. 4, 1992, Ryan Allison would spend almost the last half of his life in locked-down institutions because of his mental illness. In 2014, the 22-year-old Allison took his own life by diving off head first from a sink or toilet fixture in a suicide watch cell in the prison's mental health unit. Allison is an example of how inmates struggle with mental illness from behind bars. The Utah Legislature is currently considering a historic investment in criminal justice reform, including funding community mental-health treatment centers.
