can use summary- build on it.
Don't have to stay with the same person we wrote our summary on
-CSC operates five regional treatment centres (RTC's)
-no independant psychiatric facility for females.
Total of 675 beds
Responsibility of MHP's assigned to regular institutions to recommend offenders for admission to RTC
Acute psychiatric illness, e.g psychosis
Chronic mental illness
Cognitive, cerebral deficits
In crisis e.g suicidal, chronic self harm
Treatment reserved for the most serious cases:
Other MH problems receive limited clinical attention
Insufficient capacity to treat all MDOs
Lack of services for female offenders
Crisis management rather than prevention:
revolving door syndrome
Released too soon from RTC's, quickly in crisis again.
Use of force to control MDOs
Disconnect between order/security and providing meaningful MH treatment

no stalking law in canada
Charge in canada is harassment
