Nova Scotia, Canada, established its first problem-solving court in 2009 in response to an over-representation of people with mental illness in prisons. This research project examines the ideological foundations of the Nova Scotian problem-solving court programs. Findings indicate that the ideological foundations of these programs are consistent with the values and principles underpinning OT, making OTs a critical presence on these multidisciplinary teams.
