A Study of How People with MentalIllness Perceive and Interact with thePolice

The study was supported through the MHCC’s Mental Health and the Law Advisory Committee (MHLAC) Policeprojects, with the intention of helping to ensure that the perspectives of person living with a mental illness willinform the development of police education and learning programs related to mental illness. The MHLACrecognized that, while there have been some examinations of the nature and types of interactions betweenpolice and person with lived experience of mental illness, the perceptions and attitudes of Canadians living withsevere mental illness towards the police have not been examined. Therefore, the MHCC released a request forproposals to undertake a study of how people with mental illness perceive and interact with the police, and ateam led by the British Columbia Forensic Psychiatric Services Commission was selected.Production of this report has been made possible through a financial contribution from the Mental HealthCommission of Canada (MHCC). The work of the MHCC is supported by a grant from Health Canada.The views expressed herein do not necessarily represent the views of the MHCC, Health Canada, BCMHAS, SFUCMHA-BC, or UBC.Recommended Citation:Brink, J., Livingston, J., Desmarais, S., Greaves, C., Maxwell, V., Michalak, E., Parent, R., Verdun-Jones, S., & Weaver,C.
