The Bradley Report: Lord Bradley's Review of People with Mental Health Problems or Learning Disabilities in the Criminal Justice System (UK)

Results are presented from a "six-month independent review to determine to what extent offenders with mental health problems or learning disabilities could be diverted from prison to other services and what were the barriers to such diversion" (p. 4). This report is divided into the following six chapters: setting the scene; early intervention, arrest, and prosecution; the court process; prison community sentences, and resettlement; delivering change through partnership; and annexes. The "Government's Response" is also attached.
