  1. Assessing and responding to suicidal jail inmates.

    Article - En anglais

    Assessing and responding to suicidal risk among inmates is discussed based on a comprehensive literature review and personal experience.

    Sections detailing jail conditions, suicide risk factors, reasons for self-harm, and practical responses are included.

    Intoxication, isolation, and the initial 24 hours of incarceration stand out as significant risk factors within the jail.

    Determination of risk and considerations in decision-making are emphasized from a practical standpoint, while the inmate's safety and mental health, as well as accountability, are deemed priorities.
