Mental health, mental capacity, and competency are fields of knowledge that aren’t generally mastered by restorative practitioners, and yet these issues frequently affect our clients and the communities in which we work. This page aims to provide some information and resources to help rj practitioners in BC work more competently in situations involving mental health and related issues.

If you have resources or materials regarding this issue, please email us at info@rjbc.ca and we will share it here.
