This commentary, invited by the editors of Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, addresses the critical need for targeted interventions for women and youth with traumatic brain injury (TBI) during their transition from custodial settings. Authored by members of the Neurodiversity Special Interest Group at GLEPHA, the paper highlights the unique challenges faced by these vulnerable populations and calls for urgent action to implement effective support strategies. By drawing attention to the intersection of neurodiversity and the criminal justice system, the authors advocate for comprehensive care approaches to improve outcomes and facilitate successful reintegration into society.
