The Mental Health of Commission of Canada (MHCC) is leading the development of an action plan to support the mental health and well-being of people who interact with the criminal justice system in Canada. This initiative builds on the MHCC’s previous work in this area and was inspired by continuous calls to take action on decades-old efforts to produce meaningful change.
This will be an opportunity to provide input to ensure a variety of perspectives, including people with lived and/or living experience and individuals who work within the criminal justice system, are reflected in the action plan, as the MHCC looks to create a draft action plan for 2024.
This session will include an overview of the development of the action plan, the foundational elements, and the key issues and themes identified to date. Participants will be asked to provide input on a few engagement questions related to the plan.
Presented at the 2023 HSJCC Virtual Conference on November 16, 2023.
