Repercussions of lack of sunlight and Vitamin D foods

What are the main physical and mental health concerns due to lack of sunlight or fresh air for several months? Many inmates and long-term hospitalized never see the sun, and most incarcerated also never see dairy products, fresh fruit or veggies. I know skin diseases and mental deterioration are rampant in many jails- what are other health and mental problems?
