    Abstract

    The aim of the research was to examine the process by which potentially mentally disturbed offenders are identified and subsequently processed through the Scottish criminal justice system. The research was originally motivated by concern at an apparently high incidence of mentally disturbed offenders within penal institutions and by an increasing concern with these issues within government circles, both in Scotland and in England and Wales.
