The Forensic Mental Health System in Ontario: An Information Guide
The forensic mental health system can be confusing for patients and those who love them. We hope this guide helps you to understand
the system better. Every person's situation is unique—sometimes, rules and procedures are used that are different from the
ones we have written about here. Also, some services offered at hospitals in big cities are not always available in smaller
communities. If you have questions that this guide does not answer, talk to your lawyer, doctor or another professional in
the forensic mental health system.
