This resource is the Mental Health Primary Care in Prison website; a guide to mental ill health in adults and adolescents in prison and young offender institutions. Because the Prison Service in the UK has under its care one of the most vulnerable and mentally unhealthy populations anywhere, it requires mental-health services that are abundant and of high quality.

For the purposes of this publication, engagement covers the techniques that are concerned with gaining young people’s interest and willing participation in interventions or services intended to prevent or reduce offending.
