Jenn Ackerman. Trapped.

The continous withdrawal of mental health funding has turned jails and prisons across the U.S. into the default mental health facilities. The system designed for security is now trapped with treating mental illness and the mentally ill are often trapped inside the system with nowhere else to go.

The project portrays the daily struggle inside the walls of the unit redesigned to treat men with mental illness and maintain the level of security required in a prison. It is an institution where the criminally insane are sometimes locked up in their cells for 23 hours a day with nothings to occupy their minds but their own demons.
