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.

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.
