Stop Solitary for Kids
Each year, thousands of youth are subjected to solitary confinement and over half of suicides in juvenile facilities occur in solitary confinement. Youth in solitary confinement often have unaddressed mental needs, and they do not receive proper services or treatment. JPI is partnering with the Center for Children’s Law and Policy, the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, and the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators to organize a national campaign, Stop Solitary for Kids, to end the solitary confinement of youth in juvenile and adult facilities in the United States. Advocates, research experts, corrections administrators, and elected officials gathered together to announce the campaign and call for an end to solitary confinement for youth. Learn more about Stop Solitary for Kids in NPR and The Huffington Post, and visit the campaign’s website to join the movement.
