The overwhelming amount of studies preformed on the various inmate populations of the prison system suggest that the system itself is putting the physiological and physical health of inmates at risk. With living conditions that include overcrowding, violence, lack of privacy and lack of mental stimulation inmates are forced to adapt and cope with mental illness and unhealthy behaviors. For instance studies show that many suffer from the effects of PTSD, depression, an inability to trust others, and a dependence on structure. This combination of mental illness, and maladaptive behavior are making rehabilitation, and reintegration into society difficult for many women and men. Despite this the prison system fails to acknowledge these illnesses, leading to the current legal cases in search of prison reform.
