The mental health of inmates in Arizona is deteriorating at an alarming rate. It seems like suicide is neck and neck with COVID to see who wins.
The Arizona Republic quoted KJZZ’s article about self-harm in prison, reporting an increase of 360% more cases this year!! That is worth saying again…360% more cases. They don’t break it down by location, so we can’t isolate Perryville from the others, but if reports are accurate Perryville is suffering more than the men.
Does the DOC offer more mental health services during this crisis? Hell no.
