Mental health and court

Serious mental health issues can affect how a person's criminal charges play out in court and whether an accused person receives treatment or is sent to jail.

Assessments done by forensic psychiatrists and psychologists can help a judge determine whether an accused is mentally fit to stand trial, meaning whether the person understands the court process and can instruct his or her lawyer.

A judge could also find an accused not criminally responsible (NCR), which would mean he was unable to appreciate right from wrong at the time of the incident.

"This decision is complex and therefore is best left to the courts, which is why charges are usually laid for serious offences even when mental health is believed to be a major factor in what occurred," said Calgary police spokesperson Corwin Odland.

The accused is next due in court in September.
