Chapter 15 - The Mental Health of Men Who Offend

from Section 4 - Violence, Sociopathy, and Substance Misuse in Men


The overwhelming majority of those who come into contact with the criminal justice system (CJS) as offenders are male; this is true even when considered across the spectrum of offence types (with specific exceptions), across jurisdictions and across time. Much of the research focused on the mental health of those in contact with the CJS has consequently been about male, rather than female, offenders.
