What we do

The Mental Health Tribunal is an independent decision-making body established by the Mental Health Act
to safeguard the rights of involuntary patients in Western Australia.

The Tribunal’s main job is to review every involuntary treatment order made by a psychiatrist in Western Australia.  However, the Tribunal can also decide many other questions under the Act.

In this section we tell you more about what we do and how we do it.  We provide information on our hearings, what we can decide, our decisions and reasons, and review by the State Administrative Tribunal.
