[Perspectives] Josiah Rich: speaking up for the incarcerated

Click on to the website of Brown University’s Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights and you’re greeted by a shocking nugget of information. “The nation’s three largest psychiatric facilities”, it says, “are the New York, Los Angeles and Chicago jails. More than half of the incarcerated population has a mental health problem.” The Center’s Co-Director is Josiah “Jody” Rich, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School in Providence, Rhode Island.
