Incarcerated

In the U.S., several million individuals are incarcerated at any given time, both in prisons for longer terms and in jails for shorter stays. Many individuals who pass through the corrections system engage in high-risk behaviors, prior to incarceration and while in the system. Mental health and substance abuse challenges are particularly high among this population.
