The RSC Policy Briefing entitled “The Limits of Our Knowledge: Tracking the Size and Scope of Police Involvement with Persons with Mental Illness” is now freely and publicly available here

“Consistently lacking from much of the public discourse is a thorough understanding of the myriad of ways in which policing intersects with mental health issues, the prevalence of mental health issues within police calls for service, the nature of interactions between persons with mental illness (PMI) and police, and the unique challenges in the area facing Indigenous communities in Canada,” say Laura Huey, Lorna Ferguson, and Adam Vaughan.

The RSC has prepared Policy Briefings and other resources to ensure open access to independent, evidence-based science for Canadians.
