Whole Prison, Whole Person

Supported by the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, The Association has been working with partners’ Clinks and Nacro to develop a report on how a holistic approach can support good mental health in prison. The Whole Prison, Whole Person report sets out the key principles and recommendations towards developing a whole prison approach to good mental health for people in contact with the criminal justice system, especially those protected under the Equality Act (2010). In particular the report highlights the role of the voluntary sector in supporting a whole prison approach to mental health care.
