Emmy Nominated! There are nearly half a million mentally ill people serving time in America's prisons and jails. As sheriffs and prison wardens become the unexpected and ill-equipped gatekeepers of this burgeoning population, they raise a troubling new concern: are jails and prisons America's new asylums? FRONTLINE goes inside Ohio's prison system to present a searing exploration of the complex and growing topic of mental health behind bars.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The New Asylums DVD:

I am a college professor and have shown this to many of my classes. This is an excellent film and I really hope that PBS continues to film such documentaries as part of a series. It really brings to light what is really going on out there.
