Faculty of Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is a specialty of medicine, based on detailed knowledge of relevant law, criminal and civil justice systems, mental health systems and the relationship between mental disorder, antisocial behaviour and offending.

Its purpose is to provide leadership in the care and treatment of mentally disordered offenders and others needing similar services, including risk assessment and management and the prevention of further harm. Achievement of this requires a consistently high standard of both multidisciplinary and inter-agency working.
