Symposium on Offenders with Mental Illness: Understanding and Hope Proceedings
Group: Minnesota Department of Corrections
This document summarizes the symposium presentations and the work done by participants – both very impressive. The symposium focused upon how to effectively address the needs of women offenders and their children. The frightening number of children whose parents are imprisoned is growing at a fast pace. Children with an incarcerated parent are five times likelier to be jailed and are at high risk for delinquency, pregnancy, chemical dependency, and a host of other problems. The symposium set the course for Minnesota to break the cycle that causes children of offenders to become offenders themselves.
