Presentation time: 90 minutes

Mental health advocacy is a rewarding aspect of legal practice. Lawyers need to balance the duty to advocate for their clients but also preserve the therapeutic relationship those clients have with their treating clinicians.

This webinar will take a practical approach in looking at the legal framework in this area and help ensure that you are able to apply this understanding when representing your clients.

The presenters will also consider the outcomes from the 2019 Government Inquiry into Mental Health and what can be taken from that in terms of advocacy, as well as the recent post-COVID-19 amendments to the Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act 1992 (the Act).

Topics covered will include:

  • The rewards of advocacy for these vulnerable clients and the need for diversity of representation
  • Overview of the Act’s compulsory processes
  • Understanding the key statutory roles provided for under the Act
  • Compulsory Treatment Order hearings.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.
