BBC – A series of deaths has shone a spotlight on how police respond during a mental-health crisis. Is there a better way? What happened between police arriving on the scene and Miss Korchinski-Paquet’s death is currently the subject of an investigation by the Toronto Police Service watchdog, the Special Investigation Unit (SIU).

Her family says they called police because she needed help and was in a mental-health crisis. Her mother says she hoped an officer would help get her daughter to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), the city’s main mental-health hospital.

Miss Korchinski-Paquet’s death was not an isolated case.
