Have you, or a loved one, been involved in the criminal justice system?


Clinicians at CFIR offer psychological treatment for adult forensic clients. “Forensic” is a general term that refers to legal issues and as such our Forensic Service is specialized for people with mental health and justice issues. Clinicians in this Service provide treatment and support for voluntary clients, those found not criminally responsible due to mental illness (NCR), unfit to stand trial, individuals on probation or parole, and those with current outstanding charges for a range of legal issues.

Clinicians in this Service have specialized training and experience in providing treatment to individuals with problematic sexual behaviours and concerns about their sexual behaviour and/or interests.
