|* Unfortunately, in general the BOP is not equipped to provide any meaningful treatment for the following underlying disorders (just to mention a few) – for example:
- Post-traumatic stress
- Major depressive
As medical staffing differ from one facility to another, and if the care is available within the BOP; this may necessitate a transfer to a facility further away from their home.
