You can’t incarcerate people into mental health. Prisons are a very old concept and it’s time to ask: Do they accomplish the goals for which they were created? What can we do with dangerous people if we do away with prisons, how can we protect society? Maya Schenwar is guest on this eye-opening discussion about her book Locked Down, Locked Out. She says instead of healing, “Incarceration is tearing society apart.” Dehumanizing inmates helps no one. Today people are locked up for being poor. So what can we do? How about barber shops for restorative justice!
