Mental Health Tribunals can be an extremely stressful and daunting experience for patients. Our experienced representatives are trained to provide advice in a supportive and reassuring manner, and to provide a voice for clients who are recognised as being some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
We provide representation for clients at Mental Health Review Tribunals throughout Northern Ireland. Our solicitors are trained to identify issues that may lead to Judicial Reviews in order to ensure that our clients’ rights are fully protected.
We liaise with statutory bodies and medical professionals to ensure that the proper medical evidence is put before the Tribunal and that community alternatives to detention are fully explored. We recognise that detention can also be a difficult time for a patient’s family and we try to minimise any anxiety by keeping in close contact with families when needed.
