Forensic Mental Health / Mental Health and the Law
The Forensic Mental Health inpatient unit at Providence Care serves clients living with mental illness who have been in conflict with the law who are at risk of committing violent acts, and are unable to be accommodated in the general mental health system. Referral sources are the courts, Crown attorneys, defense lawyers, the Ontario Review Board, medical practitioners and other general and mental health (psychiatric) hospitals.
The goal of the unit is the provision of effective clinical treatment and risk management to clients with a wide range of diagnosis. Ultimately, the goal is to increase engagement of the clients in their own treatment, maintain or increase optimal functioning, supporting the clients’ successful reintegration into the community.
