Minority and marginalized groups in forensic mental health

Posted on 9 March 2020


Research manager Dr Seonaid Anderson and Forensic psychologist Liz Murray, are working together to write a chapter about Tourette Syndrome and forensic settings (for example people with Tourette Syndrome in prisons, secure psychiatric hospitals, individuals on remand, police custody).

The book is titled ‘An apple, a toothbrush and a book: Minority and marginalized groups in forensic mental health’. We thought that as we know practically nothing about people with neurological conditions such as TS in prisons for example it was worth highlighting. The purpose of the chapter is to raise awareness in forensic mental health of the difficulties people with TS have to deal with. Can you please get in touch if you or someone you know with TS has lived experiences of TS in forensic settings and would be willing to tell us a little of their experiences? Your name and details would not be used in the book. Please if you can help contact Suzanne Dobson
