Welcome to the International Association of Forensic Mental Health Services

Welcome to the IAFMHS, an international association that brings together professionals from multiple disciplines involved in research, policy, care and organisation of services at the intersection of mental health and justice. Members work towards improving services for justice-involved people with mental illness and ensuring safety in our communities. For over twenty years, the IAFMHS has offered open dialogue between disciplines and cultures, promoted diversity in research and practice and participated in the development of new generations of forensic mental health scientists and clinicians. The association is home to a flourishing journal, the International Journal of Forensic Mental Health, an ongoing book series, a well-attended annual conference as well as a quarterly newsletter. Six special interests groups (SIGS) are currently active in the Association and a very engaged and dynamic student board offers a host of resources and information throughout the year.

Consider being part of this global community in forensic mental health services, become a member!

Thank you,

Dr. Anne Crocker

President of the IAFMHS
