Statutory Review of the Mental Health Act (2014)
The Mental Health Commission is undertaking a Statutory Review of the Mental Health Act (2014) (the Act) to examine the operations and effectiveness of the Act, what is working well, and where improvements to treatment, care and support could be made.
A discussion paper has been developed to help guide a public comment period, with feedback sought on the Act as a whole, individual parts of the Act, and issues that have arisen since the Act commenced in November 2015.
Have your say
We want to hear from people who:
- Have received treatment under the Act;
- Have supported someone who received treatment under the Act;
- Work in the mental health sector, including as an advocate or volunteer;
- Have feedback about the operation and effectiveness of the Act.
Tell us what is working well with the Act or where things could be improved. Find out more and have your say here.
Submissions close 31 January 2022.
The Mental Health Commission is inviting interested parties to apply for grants to facilitate face-to-face engagement sessions with a diverse array of stakeholders who have a lived experience with treatment under the Act. The grant application period is open until 23 September 2021.
