To deal with mental health issues in prison is different and complicated. Imprisonment is an "extreme" human experience which involves the loss of personal freedom and causes a breach in a person’s life course. In fact, the highest risk for self-harm and suicide occurs during prison admission, self-injury being one of the few means a detainee has to influence the surrounding environment. However, selfharm highlights also the presence of underlying problems and a request for help. The authors examine the complexity of risk factors and of "health needs" in imprisonment and describe some organizational issues and problems the mental health team encounters, in the prison of Monza, after the approval of the new national law on mental health care in prisons.
Keywords: Prison, risk, suicide, self-harm, hetero-aggression, mental health team
