Correctional Mental Health Services in New York: Then and Now

Correctional Mental Health Services in New York: Then and Now This article chronicles the legislation, litigation, and the agency initiatives which have shaped the New York State correctional mental health system into what it is today. An historical perspective provides a context and framework for the examination of the current and future salient issues and challenges in providing a comprehensive range of mental health services in a correctional setting. The Central New York Psychiatric Center organization, which is comprised of a 206 bed maximum-security forensic hospital and a community support network of 23 prison-based mental health units was established in 1977. This article takes an in-depth look at the organization's 25-year growth and development, the implementation and outcome of some innovative treatment programs, and the unique partnership between the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) and the New York State Department of Correctional Services (DOCS).
