During the course of imprisonment, whether on remand or when serving sentence, people sometimes need to be transferred to a psychiatric hospital. In Ireland the only psychiatric hospital a person can be transferred to is the Central Mental Hospital (CMH). This paper looks at 627 prison transfers to the CMH from 1983 to 1988, with 31% diagnosed as schizophrenic, 23% with reactive depression, 25% with a personality disorder, 5% with mania, 4% with a mental handicap and 5% with a drug/ alcohol problem.
