Psychiatry in Prisons provides a comprehensive overview of the history, problems and development of psychiatric health care in prisons, focusing particularly on the UK. The contributors tackle a broad range of issues, from familiar mental health issues such as substance misuse, self-injury and health screening to complex legal, moral and philosophical dilemmas. It also draws comparisons with the US correctional mental health system and the delivery of mental health services in New Zealand prisons.


This comprehensive guide is an indispensible resource for psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, prison medical officers, probation officers, prison discipline staff and any other professionals concerned with mental health care in custodial settings.

Ceri Evans

New Zealander Dr Ceri Evans graduated in medicine with distinction from the University of Otago. He gained first class honours in Experimental Psychology on a Rhodes Scholarship at the University of Oxford while playing professional football in the English Championship. Awarded the Gaskell Gold Medal by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, he then specialised in forensic psychiatry and completed a PhD in traumatic memory.

After returning home to Christchurch, he was Clinical Director of the Canterbury Forensic Psychiatric Service and served as an expert witness in major cases. In 2018 he was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and awarded his football coaching A Licence. Ceri's reputation generates diverse invitations from leading international organisations determined to help their people deliver in demanding situations.

His Red-Blue mind model is used by people serious about performing under pressure, from doctors to lawyers, executive teams to specialist teams, and from professionals to amateurs. He is perhaps best known for his work with the New Zealand All Blacks for whom he has provided specialist consultancy since 2010.

Now in private practice, you will otherwise find Ceri with his head in a book, exercising, or with Therese trying to find out what their three children are up to at university.
