In mid-2017, the Gold Coast Community Legal Centre started working as a preferred supplier for Legal Aid Queensland in the Mental Health Review Tribunal.

Legal Aid forwards matters to the Centre and a solicitor of the Centre works on this case. This involves visiting the client at the hospital (if they are under care there) or arranging to meet with them prior to their Tribunal day.

Our solicitor represents the client at the Mental Health Review Tribunal, acting in their best interests in regards to:

  • Treatment Authorities
  • Forensic Orders; or
  • Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Our Centre greatly appreciates the opportunity given by Legal Aid to be a part of this project and further assist the Gold Coast community.

To find out more about this service, please download our Mental Health Legal Service Brochure here.

PLEASE NOTE: The GCCLC is unable to assist the community with Applications to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) for Applications for Guardianship and Administration.

The Gold Coast Community Legal Centre kindly acknowledges that Legal Aid Queensland funds this project.

Please call us on 07 5532 9611 if you need an appointment relating to Mental Health Review Tribunal matters, or complete our online Booking Form.
