What is a Psychiatrist expert witness?

A psychiatrist is an expert of the human mind. They analyse the cognitive and behavioural processes and can often establish mental capacity and help the court determine if a subject is fit to plead.

Their expertise can answer questions that can be instrumental in a criminal, family, or immigration case:

  • Have they suffered psychological harm?
  • Do they suffer from a mental illness?
  • How has substance abuse affected behaviour?
