Qatar has experienced exponential economic and healthcare infrastructural development recently. Mental health has been prioritized for development by the state with the launching of the ambitious National Mental Health Strategy in 2013 which incorporates the development of specialist Forensic psychiatry services. Traditionally, some aspects of forensic psychiatry care were provided under general psychiatry, being largely reactive. The new strategy supported the development of specialist Forensic service with a focus on developing safer communities, preventing victimization and supporting the criminal justice system. We provide an overview of the development of this service in Qatar, one of the first of its kind in the region.
