Abstract Objectives: To estimate the psychiatric service requirements for the remand population. Method: We interviewed 232 (42.6%) men, a representative sample of men on remand, using the SADS-L, SODQ and a structured demographic interview. Results: We found high rates of psychiatric morbidity in our sample. The six month prevalence of psychosis was 7.6%, almost twice the rate in a recent international meta-analysis. Major depressive disorder was present in 10.1% (six month prevalence… 
Psychiatric morbidity in the male sentenced Irish prisons population
TLDR
It is estimated that there are approximately 79 sentenced male prisoners with a severe mental illness who would require treatment in hospital additional to current provision, and the relationship between drug availability and the prevalence of severe mental illnesses in prisons is discussed.
Psychiatric morbidity among women prisoners newly committed and amongst remanded and sentenced women in the Irish prison system
TLDR
There is a high prevalence of mental illness and substance misuse problems amongst women newly committed to prison and in a cross section of those remanded or sentenced in prison in Ireland, and evidence of a cycle of deprivation and institutionalisation is found.

TLDR
It is critical that a study now to be done in an Irish prison population of the Pervasive Developmental Disorders including Asperger's syndrome, Autism, Pervvasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, as well as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder as it is my impression that there are significant numbers of these in prison population who are undiagnosed and of course then by definition not treated.
Severe mental illness in 33,588 prisoners worldwide: systematic review and meta-regression analysis.

The prevalence of major mental illness, substance misuse and homelessness in Irish prisoners: systematic review and meta-analyses

Ultra high risk of psychosis on committal to a young offender prison: an unrecognised opportunity for early intervention
TLDR
Although psychotic symptoms are common in community samples of children and adolescents, the prevalence of the UHR state in young offenders was higher than reported for community samples and the association with impaired function suggests that this may be part of a developing disorder.
