Abstract

A newly released study shows that the prevalence of mental health and substance abuse disorders among Iowa’s inmate population is even higher than earlier findings indicated. Using the MINI-Plus assessment tool, University of Iowa researchers screened a randomly selected group of 320 incoming nonviolent offenders at IMCC from 2005 to 2007. DOC’s Director of Mental Health Services, Dr. Bruce Sieleni, participated in the study.
