The intersection of law and mental health raises complex issues. The justice system relies on the expertise of mental health professionals to make decisions about the culpability, punishment and detention of people with experience mental illness or a cognitive impairment. Professor Mullen will reflect on the his extensive experience and contribution to the Harper review to reflect on the ethical and practical problems this raises for mental health professionals.
