Sonoma County Jail and Mental Health
The investigative sociology report conducted by Sonoma State University’s sociology students reveals the relationship between the Sonoma County Jail environment and mental health. Through conducting multiple interviews with inmates and staff the research group was able to conclude the findings stated below. The findings of this research show that inmates and staff from the Sonoma County Jail desire better services relating to mental health as well as an overall better environment.
Acknowledgments The research group would like to thank Sonoma State University and Professor Peter Philips for providing this course and allowing this team to investigate the social issue at hand. This research project could not have been actualized without the efforts and cooperation of the interviewees. The group acknowledged that recounting their experiences with incarceration can be triggering and for that bravery, the interviewees showed we graciously thank you all. We would also like to thank our advisor for this project, Jerry Treet, for providing us with guidance and encouragement in finishing this project and sharing our work with the community. Last but not least, this project could not have been possible without the time, effort, and cooperation of the group members.
