More than 750,000 people in our prison system have a disability, reports RespectAbility, a group that advocates for those with disabilities.
Of those, more than half a million have some sort of cognitive impairment; at least 250,000 have mobility issues; and 140,000 have some kind of vision loss.
It is estimated that close to half of those incarcerated in state and federal prisons display some symptoms of mental illness. These men and women are more likely to return to prison after their release, and to stay longer once in prison than their fellow prisoners.
