FMHAC is committed to the goal of first-rate forensic mental health care in California through quality education and training to the professionals who need it. We think an important part of effective forensic mental health services is to draw together professionals from a variety disciplines who all need current information and practical strategies for working with their patients, clients, or inmates who are mentally ill.
We have provided special tracks on Mental Health Courts, the Mentally Ill Offender Crime Reduction Grant Program and Crisis Intervention Teams. Every year the conference includes Juvenile, Legal, and Sex Offender tracks and a Words to Deeds track for group discourse. We continue to scan the field to fulfill the most current training needs in forensic mental health.
