Albany Government Law Review Issue Addresses the Criminalization of Mental Illness

In a recent issue of the Albany Government Law Review, the contributors address the troubling trend in our criminal justice system toward the criminalization of mental illness and psychiatric disabilities.  For a quick overview of the issue, please read my Introduction, which is available for download here.  It provides an brief summary of the articles that attempt to address just some of the many questions that this troubling trend raises. The submissions in this issue offer insightful analysis and offer compelling, if, at times, controversial, responses to these questions.

To read all of the articles in the issue, check out the Albany Government Law Review’s archives page, and scroll down to Volume 8, Number 2, for the complete list of articles for download.
