”Although room confinement remains a staple in most juvenile facilities, it is a sanction that can have deadly consequences…. more than 50 percent of all youths’ suicides in juvenile facilities occurred while young people were isolated alone in their rooms and that more than 60 percent of young people who committed suicide in custody had a history of being held in isolation.” Lindsay M. Hayes
