CJRC Forum - Mental Health and the Legal system
On 9 July 2007, over 40 people attended a forum on the intersection between the mental health and legal systems. Interesting and informative presentations were made by Justice Richard Schneider (Justice of the Mental Health Court in Ontario, Canada - the keynote speaker), Nathan Smyth, Sue Brennan and Paul Mullen.
The CJRC has collated the information presented on the evening and it is available below.
The CJRC has made a multimedia (flash player) presentation of the forum (this will open and resize in a new window). Please note, this is a very large file and may take a while to load and view on slower computers or over slow internet connections.
