Connecticut’s prison system must better protect the mental health of its inmates

Phillip Richardson, March 26, 2012. Isaias Perez, May 2, 2012. Cassandra Baker, January 25, 2016. Daniel Ocasio, August 12, 2020. James Harris, November 10, 2020. Each of these individuals had lives and families. Each of them made mistakes that landed them in a Connecticut Department of Correction prison. Each committed suicide while under the care of the CDOC.

A new bill in the Connecticut General Assembly, SB 448 – An Act Concerning the Delivery of Health Care and Mental Health Care Services to Inmates of Correctional Institutions will prevent these tragedies in the future.
