When the Offender is Mentally Ill
Having an offender who has been diverted through the forensic mental health system can be a frustrating, confusing and disempowering experience. We encourage you to not draw conclusions at this time, and instead get the right information and knowledge all of which is available from QHVSG so please contact us if the case involving your lost loved one is directed to the mental health courts.
Alternatively, the Queensland Health Victims Support Service is a service available to help you understand the processes and what your rights are throughout this time and are available within Queensland on 1800 208 005. They also provide a comprehensive resource guide that can be posted to you or alternatively you can download it from their website
