Inclusionary Criteria:

  • Youth between their 12th and 18th birthday at the time of the offence
  • Youth with mental health issues, suspected or diagnosed
  • Youth involved in the Youth Justice Court at the A. Grenville & William Davis Courthouse (Brampton), the Milton Courthouse (Milton) or the Dufferin County Courthouse (Orangeville)
