Court Services

The MPA Society Court Services Program operates in Vancouver, Surrey and Port Coquitlam and provides assistance for individuals experiencing the effects of mental illness and addictions, who have become involved in the criminal justice system. Our assistance occurs as friends of the court inside and outside of the courthouse.




Our objectives include the decriminalization of individuals living with mental health challenges within the context and application of the principles of psychosocial rehabilitation, leading to the larger goal of recovery for those we serve. This is achieved through motivation and encouragement of positive change, education and connection to community-based services. We believe that our efforts can have a positive impact on lowering rates of recidivism by encouraging empowerment, self-determination and acceptance of personal responsibility.
