This cross-sectional study of 109 women recruited across four prisons in Scotland, UK, supports SDGs 3, 5, and 16 by showing a strong association between a history of significant head injury and violent offences. Most instances of head injury were due to a history of repeated domestic abuse, and linked to current PTSD. These findings highlight the need to include significant head injury as a vulnerability when developing criminal justice policies, such as risk management, mental health, and prisoner rehabilitation and support.
This study supports SDGs 3 and 10 by evaluating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and psychological wellbeing of people with physical disabilities in England. During the early period of the COVID-19 pandemic in England, people with disabilities aged 52 years and older had greater depression and anxiety, greater loneliness, poorer life satisfaction, and lower purpose in life, quality of life, and sleep quality than the general population, highlighting the need for additional support for this vulnerable population during periods of enforced social isolation.

Virtual reality training programs offer health providers an opportunity to understand the isolated, fragmented and confusing world of persons with dementia. Research indicates that providers who are more empathetic provide better care and increase patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes.
