Students in this course will learn about Ontario’s mental health laws, how to access information about those laws generally, and specific information related to substitute decision-making, assessment, treatment, and privacy protections related to persons dealing with mental wellness challenges. The course covers a variety of issues of importance to those who personally struggle with mental wellness, and to those who have friends, family members, colleagues, or clients with mental wellness challenges. The course also discusses one’s role as a friend, family member, first responder, community responder or provider, or community advocate within the system. Please Note: this course addresses these issues as they relate to adults; it does not address children’s mental health laws or procedures.
