Forensic Mental Health Assessments

forensic mental heath

Forensic mental health assessments are structured evaluations that assist in answering a specific legal question. In criminal cases they are used to provide the Court, defense or Crown counsel with a sense of an individual’s state of mind at the time of the offense, what the individual’s risk for future violence or other criminal behaviour is, or what services are needed to reduce the individual’s risk for future violence or criminal behaviour.
