The Mental Health Review Tribunal (the MHRT) decides whether patients are fit to be released from compulsory status, makes recommendations about the status of special patients and considers the status of restricted patients.
This seminar will focus on the essential processes and procedures required but also importantly will examine the relevance of the largely unexplored application of human rights principles.
The seminar panel provides perspectives from a member of the Tribunal, a lawyer who regularly appears before the Tribunal, a human rights specialist, and a forensic psychiatrist who undertook research with forensic patients who had appeared before the MHRT.
These materials will help you
- Build your professional competence in relation to representing those subject to the Act.
- Sharpen your skills in identifying important points of law and practice that should be developed.
- Gain a better understanding of the empathy and interpersonal skills needed when representing a client who is subject to the Act.
This is essential training for those who wish to represent clients at the MHRT and a refresher for those who already do. It will also be beneficial to lawyers who practice in the areas of mental health, disability, family and criminal law, mental health professionals and administrators.
