The overwhelming majority of police calls involve individuals with mental health experiences and yet limited resources exist to prepare first responders for these interactions. Police Response to Mental Health in Canada addresses this gap in the field, providing practical guidance to police studies students on how best to respond to mental health-related calls in both critical and non-critical situations. Aligned with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition , (DSM-5) criteria, this text provides in-depth explanations of the mental health conditions commonly encountered in policing, including mood, psychotic, personality, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorders. Written in an accessible style, this book includes pedagogical tools such as scenario-based learning, case studies, reflection questions, group activities, and chapter summaries to reinforce the learning objectives outlined at the start of each chapter.

With the increasing demand for law enforcement officials to be better informed and prepared to interact with those experiencing mental health issues, this is a timely resource for students in college and university police studies programs.

Features:

• includes learning objectives, case studies, and discussion questions
• includes contributions from leaders in fields of health services, psychology, criminology, policing, and corrections
• discusses Canadian issues that are relevant across the country, including police relations with Indigenous populations and incidents of gang-related violence
