Since 2009, BLG has partnered with the Ontario Hospital Association to prepare a toolkit for frontline mental health care providers. This 174-page resource aims to provide its readers with a general understanding of mental health law issues in several key areas, such as consent to treatment, involuntary admission, community treatment orders, the detention and supervision of mentally disordered criminal offenders, along with an overview of the provincial and federal legislation that governs the provision of mental health care in Ontario. Authored by Katharine Byrick and Barbara Walker-Renshaw, the 2016 edition of the Toolkit is now available!
