Mental Health Issues in Federal Penitentiaries (Recording) 

Aug. 6, 2015

There is a great deal of discussion surrounding the prevalence of mental health disorders and mental health care capacity in Federal Corrections.


In this 90 minute webinar you’ll hear directly from the Correctional Investigator of Canada, Howard Sapers, who will review the Correctional Service of Canada’s (CSC) ‘optimal’ model of mental health care as well as concerns about the shift in resources and capacity to fund this new model.

Drawing from recent reports and investigations, the webinar will include a discussion on:

  • The management of self-injurious and suicidal inmates;
  • CSC’s response to the Ashley Smith inquest and the use of administrative segregation to manage mentally ill offender; and
  • mental health care reform in federal corrections
