Individuals are admitted to the Forensic Division of the Complex Care and Recovery Program by one of two routes:
All matters pertaining to the admission, assessment, movement, transfer and discharge of ORB patients are coordinated and tracked by the Office of the Person in Charge (OPIC). Other functions of OPIC include: the scheduling of ORB hearings, ensuring that hospital reports to the ORB are processed in a timely fashion, reviewing privilege requests and representing CAMH at ORB hearings.
OPIC staff members provide ongoing information and support to both internal and external stakeholders. This involves developing contacts at various courts (mental health workers, duty counsels, transportation staff), as well as liaising with legal counsels, the Office of the Crown Attorney and the staff at the ORB. OPIC also provides education sessions for CAMH staff on relevant legal and administrative issues.
