Product description

General Editors and Authors: Anita Szigeti, Ruby Dhand, Dena Bonnet and Justice Jill R. Presser

Thoughtfully edited by four of the nation’s leading subject matter experts, Canadian Anthology on Mental Health and the Law brings together the voices of multidisciplinary experts from coast to coast.

This volume contains contributions by 70 extraordinary authors – judges, academics, lawyers, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals – in conversation with family members, victims, and people living with mental health challenges.

MAID and mental illness, overuse of psychiatric segregation, police interactions with persons in crisis, race-based discrimination in our mental health and justice systems, how administrative tribunals adjudicate mental health matters – these are just a few of the topics addressed in the 50 chapters in this special collection.

Can we really predict risk of violence? Is an NCR Verdict a life sentence? How do mental health and drug treatment courts work across Canada? Can victims and families navigate our justice system? What do people who live with mental health issues or use drugs actually need?

This unique book answers your questions and explores complex dynamics at the intersection of mental health and the law. Sophisticated concepts are canvassed deeply but explained clearly.

There is nothing else like it – a book that keeps your interest cover to cover and a reference you can consult when you’re confronted with difficult problems in mental health and the law.
