In addition to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Offenders topic page, the National Institute of Corrections website now contains a topic page devoted to the medical and mental health needs of LGBTI offenders.
This web page has been developed in an effort to provide current and useful information to correctional agencies regarding the management of medical and mental health needs, issues, and risk factors for the LGBTI offender population. Highlighted on the web page is the recently released Gender Identity Disorder webinar, featuring Chief Psychiatrist Don Lewis, D.O., of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP).
