Assessable Person

An assessable person is a person detained on an involuntary basis in a Mental Health Facility who is not (yet) subject to an Involuntary Patient Order made by the Mental Health Review Tribunal (MHRT) at a Mental Health Inquiry. The Authorised Mental Officer of a Mental Health Facility must present an assessable person to the MHRT for a Mental Health Inquiry as soon as practicable after their detention in hospital.
