Title: Another Kind of Prison
Location: United States

Molly Britton, 54, a mentally ill, self-medicating crack user with a history of abuse, has been in and out of the SanFrancisco County Jail over a period of five years. Though she has a network of agencies and social services to support her she is far from stable. The City has placed her in the worst possible area for a mentally ill substance abuser, challenging her everyday as soon as she steps outside.Increasingly isolated, unable to work, and a razor’s edge from going back to jail, Molly seems set up to fail by the system. Molly represents over 70 percent of the women in California’s prisons and jails that have substance abuse issues and metal illness.(Human Rights Watch)
