Court Liaison Service
The Mental Health Court Liaison Service is a court based program provided by the Community Forensic Mental Health Service.
The service provides mental state assessment and advice to courts and other referrers on people appearing before the court in criminal cases who are thought to have a mental illness or display concerning behaviour thought to be related to mental illness.
- Experienced forensic mental health clinicians undertake mental state assessments and provide feedback to the court. This assists the court in making well informed decisions in situations where factors related to serious mental illness need to be taken into account.
Latrobe Valley Magistrates Court phone 5116 5222.
