Involuntary Admission:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

Under the Mental Health Act, a person may be Involuntarily Admitted to a Mental Health Facility if they are considered ‘Mentally ill’ or ‘Mentally disordered’ and may be a serious harm to themselves or to others. There may be several factors and/or persons(s) that may determine if an individual may be Involuntarily Admitted to a Mental Health Facility. These include, but are not limited to, a Court Order, medical practitioner, the police, authorised ambulance officer or at the written request of the primary caregiver, family or friend, amongst others.

Generally, Involuntary Admission may be a complicated and lengthy process. If you have been Involuntarily Admitted to a Mental Health Facility or you are assisting an individual who has been Involuntarily Admitted to a Mental Health Facility, it is important to seek help and the appropriate legal advice from a Mental Health Lawyer.

At Navado, our team of Mental Health Lawyers are able to review and help you understand the rights of an Involuntarily Admitted patient under the Mental Health Act. Our Mental Health Lawyers understand that some issues may be sensitive and will speak with you in a confidential environment. Our Mental Health Lawyers work closely with our Senior Solicitors and Barristers and are able to represent you at the Mental Health Tribunal should your matter so require.

If you seek legal representation and are unable to attend our offices and require a Mental Health Solicitor to attend a Mental Health Facility, please contact our Head office on (02) 9233 4048.
