Mental Health Advocacy Service Annual Report 2017-2018


Inquiry into Treatment, Support and Discharge Plans

From March to September 2017 MHAS Advocates conducted an inquiry into Treatment, Support and Discharge Plans (TSD Plans) which concluded that no mental health service was fully complying with the consumer and carer rights under the Mental Health Act 2014 requiring them to be involved in, and get a copy of, a TSD Plan.  See the MHAS final report: TSD Plans Final Report 19 March 2018. It includes a “prompt” sheet which consumers and carers might find useful when preparing for TSD Plan meetings with their treating team.

Recommendations were made to each health service provider, the Director General of Health, the Chief Psychiatrist, the Mental Health Commission, Mental Health Tribunal and Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, all of which responded to the report:
