While the incarceration rate in New York has dropped in recent years, the proportion of mentally ill inmates in city jails has risen to nearly 40 percent. In an effort to take responsibility for these individuals, New York recently enacted a law that extends mental health services to more than 3,000 additional inmates discharged from correctional facilities who received mental health treatment while in jail.

There are many contributory factors why individuals are facing into this situation, which I think the national government should work on this to find out the fact and get to the bottom of the cause.
