Last year we spent a lot more time out of cells, food was better. I understand the jail was locked back a lot more than they are now, but it still seems a little cruel to have people locked in a cell for 12 to 16 hours a day. But I have to say it has improved since everyone on the outside started protesting.
As far as medical care goes, honestly it sucks. The medical staff does not seem to take anything serious, nor do they seem properly trained. You have to pretty much pass out for them to take you seriously and then all they do is lock you in a cell by yourself for 3 to 5 days.
Now, as far as the mental health aspect is concerned, I think we have a great group of staff. I just feel we could use some more mental health staff.
When it comes to educational opportunities, I don’t feel it is fair to only offer GED class to people under the age of 24; there are tons of girls in here who are older than 24 who I feel could benefit from GED class.
Once again, thank you so much for your support.
