QXD 8/4/08 15:01 Page 4 Handbook of Forensic Mental Health reflects the movement away from services which are determined by a medical/illness model and towards a health/prevention model. Mullen (2000: 307) defines forensic mental health as: … an area of specialisation that, in the criminal sphere, involves the assessment and treatment of those who are both mentally disordered and whose behaviour has led, or could lead, to offending.

What is forensic mental health? Where is it ‘done’? When is it done? By whom is it done and onto whom? And finally, and most crucially, how can we develop an understanding of the issues?

No longer is it the preserve of the discipline of forensic psychiatry. Forensic psychology, mental health nursing, social work and occupational therapy are professions that have become more closely involved in the forensic field. Now interdisciplinary working is a critical issue. Also, users are increasingly attempting to have a more credible voice. There has been a greater investment in research in recent years, but Soothill and Rogers are cautious about the current situation. They suggest that there is a dearth of thinking about this very important area of research activity.
