There are 10 times more people with serious mental illness in our jails and prisons than in our state psychiatric hospitals. On the next Fresh Air, Psychiatrist Christine Montross explains why incarceration undermines mental health. She also explores an alternative system of confinement and rehabilitation in Norway. Her book is “Waiting for an Echo.” Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
