With social inclusion high on the agenda of primary care mental health services, this article examines the factors that influence social exclusion, particularly of prisoners. Consideration is given to accessibility of primary mental health care in custodial settings and how mental health workers can provide services to the prison population. It is clear that much work remains to be done to ensure that this client group is provided with effective and equitable services.
