Assessable Person

An assessable person is a person detained on an involuntary basis under the Mental Health Act 2007 (NSW) in a public mental health facility who has not been reviewed by the Mental Health Review Tribunal (MHRT). The Authorised Mental Officer of a public mental health facility must present an assessable person to the MHRT for a Mental Health Inquiry as soon as practicable after the person’s detention in hospital.
