Languages of publication
In the contemporary world a man is exposed to many risks arising both from the outside world and from the inside of a man, which lead them to self-destructive actions. This kind of behavior can be a part of a life of every “free man”. Therefore the risk existing in the lives of imprisoned people is often much higher, because of being on an emotional collapse, so they often make suicide attempts. This is a problem that affects not only the Polish prison system, but also the prisons around the world. This issue should be considered also for this reason that, despite the numerous regulations of Polish legislator, we failed so far in strictly dealing with suicidal behavior in prisons among inmates. This article is based on the literature, judgments and many legal articles appropriate to the subject. It illustrates the phenomenon of suicide of inmates in prisons. This article describes circumstances that may affect this kind of negative behaviors. It also presents the problem of imprisoned juvenile offenders who make suicide attempts. Due to the occurrence of this type of negative behavior the need for their prevention has been shown.
