both the guards and inmates. As the number of inmates increase the space, policies, and personnel have not adjusted and respond to the overcrowding. Schnittker and John (2007) identify some of the direct and indirect effects incarceration has on inmates health. They found that incarceration has a strong impact on an individuals long-term health, creating severe health constraints. The authors suggest that beyond health issues incarceration contributes to racial disparities, inequality, overall stigma and stress (Schnittker & John, 2007). Elderly Inmates & Mental Health Dr.Stan Stojkovic (2008) presented in his text “Elderly prisoners: A growing and forgotten group within correctional systems vulnerable to elder abuse” that approximately 600,000 prisoners are released into the community every year throughout the U.S. Of those 600,000 inmates released many of them are elderly. In his text, Stojkovic (2008) makes the claim that the elderly experience abuse and neglect while incarcerated, which continues well after their release. Stojkovic (2008) argues that most correctional systems throughout the United States do not have the adequate resources to supervise the growing elderly population in corrections while they are incarcerated and after they are released. Unfortunately, prisons have become the primary mental health institutions in the United States. Many inmates had not been treated for their mental health issues and then found themselves in trouble with the law as a direct result. Adams and Ferrandino write in their 2008 text, “Managing mentally ill inmates in prisons,” often there is a serious disjointedness between the needs of mentally ill offenders and the resources available for their treatment. This gap in resources has a significant effect on the supervision of the mentally ill within an institution. The conjunction between control of the inmate and treatment of the inmate must be met with an appropriate balance. Adams and Ferrandino (2008) make the claim that a large portion of the prisoner population has some type of disorder and in need of mental health treatment. Corrections staff and officers recognize substantial challenges while attempting to address treatment concerns combined with control concerns. There seems to be an increasing population of mentally ill inmates entering prisons, going untreated, being released, then finding their way back to prison because of the aforementioned lack of treatment.
