Young people with acquired brain injury: Preventing entrenchment in the criminal justice system

Health and Wellbeing, Young People, Youth Justice

AIC has released this paper investigating whether young people with acquired brain injury (ABI) are overrepresented in the criminal justice system and looking at how the system responds to their needs. The study found that young people with ABI are very likely to be overrepresented, however the true extent is unclear due to low levels of diagnosis and identification. Further findings and proposals are detailed in the report.
