Mental Health Review Tribunal

After the tribunal has made a decision

A tribunal can hand down a number of decisions relating to a patient's review. 

The panel may decide to do any of the following:

  • place the patient on, or extend a community management order
  • order the patient to remain an involuntary patient for up to three months for mental illness, or 14 days for mental disturbance
  • change your legal status from involuntary to a voluntary patient
  • discharge you from a health facility
