People with a mental disorder or with a history of mental health issues are continually ostracized by society, resulting in it being even more difficult for the mentally ill to admit their symptoms to others and to seek treatment. To work towards understanding mental illness is to lift the stigma, and to finally let sufferers feel safe and accepted within today’s society. There are many ways in which the sufferers are degraded and shamed. It is a common perception that mental illnesses are not a priority when it comes to Government spending, just as it is too often forgotten that most mental health disorders can be treated and lead a normal life if treatment is successful. This branding makes a sufferer feel embarrassed and dehumanized; a common perception is that they should be feared or looked down upon for something they have not caused.

The vast majority of prisoners who suffer from severe mental illness are not receiving the proper mental health treatment necessary. The lack of attention allocated to the sanity of prisoners with mental illness is a haunting reality given that these people eventually return to the free world following their time in prison. Due to the punitive tendencies of the prison system, prison will likely only exacerbate people's preexisting mental illnesses, making them susceptible to recidivism, or further engaging in criminal behavior. This paper will examine the links between the prison system’s mentality to punish rather than rehabilitate its prisoners and therefore the lack of mental health care or rehabilitation the prisons provide for inmates with severe mental illness. This paper then considers the ways in which a merging of agendas between the prison system and the mental health institution could result in prisoners with mental illness receiving the care they need to return to society in better mental health than when they entered.
Further, peace is elusive in a place where inmates are on constant alert for potential trouble.

Moreover, inmates tend not build a positive relationship with staff, because they a feeling of being treated unfairly. The act of violence by inmates has an adverse impact on the correctional staff.
They being fully aware of their innocence as well as knowing the guards were also aware that they were not real criminals; they did not feel they deserved such punishments and degradation, hence their revolt. Also, the prisoners did not follow the rules because they were already labelled or assigned the role of ‘criminals’; our text also notes that once assigned a deviant role, people have trouble presenting a positive image to others and may even experience lowered self-esteem (Schaefer, 2016 pg. 159). The other guards did not speak up or challenge John Wayne
Therefore when inmates with inmates going thru detox will often have dangerous conflicts with other inmates. This type of conflict is aggressive, because that already unstable due to the nature of detox. This would be considered a destructive conflict; because of the fact they are not taught, in prison, how to deal with the internal conflict of addiction.
