Mental Health Law

In Ontario, the mental health diversion program offers a way for those with mental illnesses to resolve criminal charges. If it can be proven that the offending behaviour was a result of a mental illness that has been untreated or undertreated, you may be able to avoid a criminal record without going to trial.

 

The process for mental health diversion varies greatly depending on the case and courthouse. Typically, it involves regular doctor visits, and medication adherence if meds are prescribed.

 

We can help guide you through the process and answer your questions related to:

 

  • Mental health diversion certification
  • Your right to a second opinion
  • How to apply
  • How to prepare for a hearing
