Rethinking Mental Health Laws: An Integrated Approach

Provided by   Monash University

Research Project

Brief description The main aim of this research program is to explore the role the law has and should have in improving access to optimal mental health care and promoting and maintaining good mental health. The program will bring together international and Australian mental health experts from a range of disciplines as well as consumer representatives to develop model frameworks for both civil commitment laws for those with serious mental illnesses and sentencing laws for mentally ill offenders. These model frameworks will integrate theoretical and clinical approaches for attaining the highest attainable standard of mental health care and will put Australia in the forefront of the developing international focus on reforming mental health laws.
