National Association of Social Workers
Sep 29, 2018

“In 2015, at least 75,900 youth under 18 were prosecuted as adults in the United States.  The youth who end up in the adult criminal justice system are more likely not only to be black or brown children, but also to commit suicide while in adult jail, to have psychiatric symptoms than youth housed in juvenile facilities, and to reoffend once they are back in their communities.”
