This book is based on original research and explores the extent to which the mental health needs of young women are identified and met whilst in, and after leaving police custody. London, England was the location of the research but the findings and recommendations are relevant to researchers, practitioners and policymakers worldwide.The research that informed this book was carried out by young, female peer researchers who undertook interviews with young women with experience of police custody. Findings highlight the extent of mental health problems amongst youngfemale offenders, and the lack of opportunity to gain support for their specific needswhilst in, and after leaving, police custody. The research identifies the need for greater consistency in catering for this group’s needs as well as developing specialist services for Black and minority ethnic women with mental health challenges whilst in police custody. It also puts forward recommendations for insight into young women’s mentalhealth to translate to effective interventions that divert them away from re-offending.
