Welcome to Risk & Recovery!
What is Risk and Recovery?
A conference for professionals in mental health, probation & parole, corrections, legal services and police.
St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton's Forensic Psychiatry Program is committed to the importance of the academic enterprise. It is through the acquisition of new knowledge through research, knowledge translation and education that allows our program to be a forerunner in mental health research and to deliver the best possible care to the patients we serve.
St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (SJHH) and McMaster University have considered the impact of COVID-19 on the health and safety of the public, staff, learners and attendees of our annual conference. In light of these circumstances, SJHH and McMaster announce their 14th Annual Risk and Recovery Forensic Conference, now held virtually! Featuring experts on risk assessment, risk management and recovery, the conference is an opportunity to expand your knowledge of forensic psychiatry and contribute to the pursuit of excellence in mental health care.
The conference will be held online via Zoom facilitated by an online platform. Five stimulating keynote speakers will address a variety of engaging topics. Participants will choose from a number of seminars to address topics in forensic mental health in more detail.
The conference will take place on April 15-16 2021 with pre-conference workshops available on April 14; all via Zoom. Further scheduling details available on the Agenda page.
