UNSHACKLE is linked with multiple agencies which combined provides a holistic approach. We can direct you to professional providers whether this relates to mental health, drugs, alcohol or lack of social or physical activity to help you.

Individuals with mental health problems are more dangerous to themselves than others with reports suggesting 90% of suicides accounted for those having mental health distress.  With these individuals more likely to encounter the police and the crime justice system as victims or offenders. According to Stephen Moid, Police and Crime Commissioner 40% of police demand nationally and 20% of incidents within Northamptonshire were mental health related.  It often is the case that individuals with Mental health problems are dealt with unfairly as they are not able to represent themselves adequately.

Release can be daunting, and you may not know where to start who to speak with? UNSHACKLE can help you create the support network and lifestyle skills needed to re adjust into the local community.

According to the national audit office on mental health in prisons, the government is not aware of the number of prisoners with mental health issues or whether it is achieving its objectives in supporting these individuals.

In 2016 there were 40,161 incidents of self-harm in prisons and 120 self-inflicted deaths.  

The prisons ombudsman found that 70% of prisoners who had committed suicide between 2012 and 2014 had mental health issues.

UNSHACKLE knows it is vital that these individuals are given the support and help they need upon release.
