Overview of the Act - Mental Health Act XXXXXXXXXXFact sheet

Mental Health Act 2016
Fact Sheet
Overview of the Act
Objects and Principles
The objects of the Act are to be achieved in a way that:
 safeguards the rights of persons
 adversely affects a person’s rights and liberties only
to the extent necessary, and
 promotes patient recovery.
Strengthened patient rights
Patient rights are strengthened by:
 enabling a person to be treated without consent
under a treatment authority only if the person lacks
capacity (and therefore is unable to make decisions)
and there is a serious risk of harm or deterioration
 requiring a person to be treated under an advance
health directive, or with the consent of an attorney
or guardian (and not under a treatment authority) if
the person’s treatment needs can be met that way
 requiring persons on treatment authorities to be
placed on a community category unless the
person’s treatment needs cannot be met that way
 providing a right for a patient, or someone on the
patient’s behalf, to seek an independent second
opinion if there are unresolved concerns about the
patient’s treatment and care
 establishing a patient’s right to communicate by
phone or electronic device while an inpatient,
unless there is a risk to the patient or others
 the right for a patient to be visited by family, carers
and other support persons at any reasonable time,
unless it would cause risk to the patient, and
 the right for a patient to be visited by a health
practitioner or a legal adviser.
The chief psychiatrist is required to prepare a
Statement of Rights.
Independent Patient Rights Advisers
All public sector mental health services have appointed
an Independent Patient Rights Adviser (or advisers) to
advise patients and patients’ families, carers and other
support persons of their rights under the Act.
Advisers may be appointed in an external agency (such
as a non-government organisation) or in a Hospital and
Health Service, but not in a mental health service.
Strengthened role for support persons
A person may appoint one or two nominated support
persons to support the person if the person becomes
an involuntary patient. A nominated support person:
 must receive all notices that are given to the patient
 may discuss confidential information about the
patient with the treating team, and
 may support the patient, or represent the patient,
at hearings of the Mental Health Review Tribunal,
 may request a psychiatrist report if the person is
charged with a ‘serious offence’.
Authorised doctors are required to discuss treatment
and care with family, carers and other support persons,
unless specific exceptions apply.
Written notices may be given to support persons.
Examination authorities are made by the Mental
Health Review Tribunal.
An examination authority gives power to enter
premises and examine a person without consent.
Reasonable attempts must have been made to
encourage the person to be treated voluntarily, unless
such attempts are not practicable.
Advice from a health practitioner must be included in
an application for an examination authority.
Emergency examination authorities are made under
the Public Health Act 2005, to deal with persons who
are at immediate risk of serious harm due to a major
ance in the person’s mental capacity, whether
caused by illness, disability, injury, intoxication or
another reason.

ed from a place of custody to an authorised
mental health service for treatment and care as a
classified patient within 72 hours of a recommendation
eing made.
Treatment and care
Authorised doctors must ensure patients receive
timely, accurate and appropriate information about

Authorised doctors must ensure that the treatment
and care provided to a patient is, and continues to be,

with the Act.
Authorised doctors are to record in the patient’s health
ecords the treatment and care that is provided to a
Administrators of authorised mental health services
must ensure auditable systems are in place for
ecording patients’ treatment and care.
Administrators must also take reasonable steps to
ensure that:
 patients receive the treatment and care recorded in
the patients’ records
 the other treatment and care needs of patients are
met, and
 the treatment and care of patients is in accordance
with the Act.
Restrictive practices
Safeguards are strengthened in the use of restrictive
practices by:
 enabling the chief psychiatrist to issue directions on
the use of seclusion in an authorised mental health
 requiring chief psychiatrist approval for all uses of
mechanical restraint
 introducing ‘reduction and elimination plans’ to
allow the chief psychiatrist to approve seclusion or
mechanical restraint within a plan for its reduction
and elimination for the patient
 strengthening time limits on the use of seclusion
and mechanical restraint on a patient
 introducing restrictions on the use of physical
estraint, by requiring approval for its use, unless
urgent or other specific circumstances apply, and
 requiring medications, such as sedation, only to be
used where it is clinically necessary for the patient’s
treatment and care.
Psychiatrist reports
Persons on an authority or order charged with a
‘serious offence’ will be offered a free psychiatrist
A ‘serious offence’ is an indictable offence, other than
an offence that must be heard by a magistrate (e.g.
common assault).
A request for a report may also be made be a
nominated support person, lawyer, parent, guardian or
Mental Health Court
The Mental Health Court’s jurisdiction primarily relates
to ‘serious offences’, which aligns with the criminal
A community category is established for forensic
orders, where treatment in the community is over 7
A maximum 10-year non-revocation period for forensic
orders may be set by the Court for the most serious
offences, such as murder, manslaughter and rape.
The Court may recommend intervention programs for
persons on forensic orders, such as a drug and alcohol
A less intensive form of order – a ‘treatment support
order’ – may be made by the Court. Under this order,
the Court and the Tribunal do not limit treatment in
the community.
The Court is assisted by ‘assistant clinicians’, who are
psychiatrists and persons with a background in the
care of persons with an intellectual disability.
The Court may be assisted by only one assisting
clinician where it is appropriate to do so.
