The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is responsible for the care and custody – including the mental health of more than 219,600 federal inmates. BOP identifies and treats inmates’ mental health disorders, and has procedures in place to assess the provision of mental health services.

This book addresses BOP’s costs to provide these services, the extent to which BOP assesses whether its institutions comply with BOP policies for providing services, and the extent to which BOP tracks the costs of providing mental health services to inmates in contract facilities, as well as assesses their compliance with contract requirements.
