Complaints about the Mental Health Tribunal

You cannot complain to the Mental Health Tribunal about a decision of the Tribunal.  If you are not satisfied with a decision of the Tribunal, you may apply to the State Administrative Tribunal for a review. This must be done within 28 days of the day the Tribunal gives you the Notice of Decision.  Click here to go to the State Administrative Tribunal website.

Complaints about other matters should be sent to enquiries@mht.wa.gov.au
