well, yes, re-establishing mental institutions would not only reduce the prison population, it would also improve the experience of both the regular prison inmates and the ones who *should* be in mental institutions.

Personally, though, I think this needs to go hand in hand with affordable outpatient care for mental disorders, to help people live outside of institutions. New technologies for tracking patients and making for they get medicated on schedule could help with this, if people were motivated to use them.
