Forensic Disability Services & Mental Health Care
Forensic disability and mental health care is our specialty area that focuses on treating people with mental illness who have been found unfit to stand trial or not guilty because of insanity. Forensic disability and mental health patients are often admitted to a secure psychiatric facility but may also be treated in prison.
The main goals of forensic disability and mental health care are to ensure that the patient receives effective treatment for their illness while ensuring that they do not pose a danger to themselves or others.
Treatment options include medications such as antipsychotics and antidepressants, as well as therapy sessions with psychologists or psychiatrists. Some people may also benefit from group therapy sessions where they can talk about their experiences with other patients who have similar conditions.
