National Forensic Mental Health Principles Project

CONTRIBUTE TO FORENSIC MENTAL HEALTH PROJECT

Lived Experience – a stakeholder for the first time in this process!

The National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) is providing support for a consultation process to enable stakeholders to express their views on a set of principles for forensic mental health in Australia.
The project is being done by a partnership of MHM2 (providing lived experience perspectives); Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research; Queensland Forensic Mental Health Services; University of Melbourne.
This is the first national process in forensic mental health in which the views of lived experience, government and non-government stakeholders will be considered.
The project is an opportunity to make sure that principles for forensic mental health reflect all the expertise and experience of the people who are affected by them.
