Mental Health & Policing Working Group.

In late fall of 2020, the Royal Society of Canada's Covid-19 Task Force approached me to set up a mental health and policing working group to explore the impacts of covid-19 on police calls involving persons with mental illness (PMI). In 2021, we released two reports: The Limits of our Knowledge and Caught in the Currents. Since then, we have been approached by police groups interested in exploring ways to implement some of our recommendations, as well as constructing new solutions to old problems. On this page, you can follow with some of our projects and access some of the continuing work of this group.
