The Forensic Psychiatry Division provides comprehensive care and services for people with serious mental illness who have come in contact with the law. Clients are placed under the jurisdiction of the Ontario Review Board (ORB) because they have been found not criminally responsible for their offense, or they have been deemed unfit to stand trial, on the account of having a serious mental illness. We also conduct research to improve outcomes for forensic clients and the community.
Our primary clinical and research goals are to maximize rehabilitation and recovery for individuals under our care, while maintaining the safety of the community at large by helping to reduce and manage risk for violence.
