Traumatic brain injury in the prison population

Traumatic Brain Injury In The Prison Population: A Summary Of Evidence About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) In The Prison Population, It’s Effects And How To Help People With TBI.

Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service published new guidance yesterday (3rd October 2019) on traumatic brain injury in the prison population.
 
The guidance covers key areas such as what constitutes a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and who is at risk; the evidence base; the incidence in the prison population and the links between TBI and crime.
 
Crucially the guidance asks what prisons and probation services can do better to help people with TBI in prisons and states that routine, effective and standardised screening and assessment for TBI is needed as well as higher levels of awareness and training for staff. 

The guidance references many of the contributors to the APPG for ABI report including Professor Huw Williams, Professor Seena Fazel, The Disabilities Trust and the APPG report itself.

The report has been produced partly as a result of the work of the Criminal Justice Acquired Brain Injury Interest Group (CJABIIG) and its membership and the work of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Acquired Brain Injury. The meetings organised by Chris Bryant MP with the Ministry of Justice.
