Victorian statement of rights - Court assessment order

An order means a psychiatrist can assess you to decide if they think you need compulsory treatment, even if you don’t want this to happen. It is issued by the court hearing your criminal charges. Statements of rights are documents that set out a person’s rights, and the processes that apply, while a person is receiving a mental health and wellbeing service under the Act. Statements of rights are approved by the Chief Officer for Mental Health and Wellbeing.
