    Abstract

    When the ends of law and the ends of medicine coincide, cooperation between clinical and forensic psychiatry is likely. When the ends of law and the ends of medicine diverge, cooperation may not be feasible. This is demonstrated by the relationship between the Forensic Psychiatry Clinic fbr the New York Criminal and Supreme Courts (First Department) and the Prison Mental Health Service of the City of New York. It is suggested that the experience of these two agencies is generalizable to all who attempt to provide mental health services to defendant populations.
