The Waypoint Research Institute at Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care is hosting a free conference at the University of Toronto called the Annual Forensic Psychiatry Research Conference. It will be held on April 28-30, 2015, and will feature diverse topics, both academic and applied, relating to forensic mental health care research and service delivery. Primarily, the topics will reflect two themes: 1) issues in forensic assessment; and 2) issues in forensic treatment.
This conference will be of interest to anyone interested in forensic mental health and addictions, whether they are an academic, researcher, clinician, policy-maker, educator, or student. In particular, the conference aims to attract those who are associated with the University of Toronto Forensic Psychiatry Division, and the three affiliated teaching hospitals: Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores), and Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care (Waypoint).
