Victim information – mental health matters

We support victims of crime committed by a person with a mental illness or an intellectual disability, as set out by the Mental Health Act 2016.

Under the Act, we can help you access specific information about a patient on a forensic order or a treatment support order.

We can also support you to write a victim impact statement about how the crime has affected you for the Mental Health Court and the Mental Health Review Tribunal.

Find out more about support for victims.

Support is available

Queensland Health Victim Support Service is a free statewide service providing specialised counselling, support and information to victims of crime when the person charged has been assessed as having a mental illness or intellectual disability.
