Self-harm and overcrowding among prisoners in Geneva, Switzerland
|Published in||International Journal of Prisoner Health. 2016, vol. 12, no. 1, p. 39-44|
|Abstract||Prison institutional conditions affect risk for self-harm among detainees. In particular, prison overcrowding may increase the likelihood of self-harm by creating competition for resources, space, and enhancing a "deprivation state." The purpose of this paper is to examine the association between overcrowding and prisoner acts of self-harm.|
