Grave mental health fears in jails – Cartabia

(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 15 – The mental health of inmates in
Italian jails is a source of great concern, Justice Minister
Marta Cartabia said Tuesday.
Overcrowding is still another major concern, she said.
Addressing warders on the 204th anniversary of the foundation of
the penitentiary police, Cartabia said “I believe that there are
two priorities to be addressed among the many, very many,
problems that afflict our institutes of detention: the problem
of psychological health and the problem of overcrowding, which
is again spurring serious concern”. (ANSA).
