However, receiving visits in prison may also increase stress and anxiety, thereby negative ly affecting adjustment to prison life. Based on a sample of 75 young adult males in Portugal who were evaluated at the 1st, 3 rd, and 6 th month after entry in prison, the present study explored the reci procal relationship between visitation and mental health, as well as the longitudinal course of visita tion rates during incarceration and individual charac- teristics associated with receiving visits. Regression analyses revealed that the number of visits declined over the first six months in the institution. Prison visits were positively related to a lower educational level, Portuguese nationality, mental treatment history, and a less developed criminal history. In addi- tion, a higher level of mental health symptoms was associated with more subsequent prison visits in the first three months in prison, but visits were not associated with subsequent mental health symptoms. The results of this study suggest that detained young adults presenting a higher level of mental health symptoms may be more likely to be visited by their fa mily and friends during the initial period of incar- ceration.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Prison Visitation and Mental Health in Detained Young Adults</dcterms:title> <dcterms:alternative>Gefängnisbesuche und psychische Gesundheit inhaftierter junger Erwachsener</dcterms:alternative> <dc:contributor>Goncalves, Leonel C.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Noll, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-02-12T14:01:15Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-02-12T14:01:15Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Goncalves, Leonel C.</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Dirkzwager, Anja J.
