This article discusses the potential for a more flexible approach to intimate partner violence (IPV) committed by individuals with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI), through interdisciplinary coordination and training of police, judges, attorneys, legal advocates, mental health professionals, and substance abuse providers. Perpetrators with SPMI may be inappropriate for adjudication in the criminal justice system. A singular response may miss the opportunity for detection and assertive treatment of SPMI, that could promote safety and reduce the likelihood of violence. Offenders with SPMI may also have difficulty comprehending court procedures. Alternative or additional responses may be required (Authors).
