This paper presents prevalence rates by race/ethnicity and age for nine psychiatric and substance use disorders found in a random sample of 728 male jail detainees.
Two thirds of the sample detainees had had a disorder other than antisocial personality during their lifetimes; half of these had had and episode within 2 weeks of the interview.
More than 30% currently had either a severe mental disorder or a substance use disorder.
Detainees with severe mental disorders or substance use disorders were most often in jail because they had commited nonviolent crimes.
