The Norrie Report. A review of Forensic Mental Health and Disability Services within the Northern Territory.
People with mental health problems and intellectual and cognitive disability are markedly over represented at all points in the criminal justice system (CJS). As such forensic mental health and disability services are required to provide assessment, treatment and care for these individuals not only during their contact with the CJS, but also into the community. In addition, individuals may be found by courts, because of their mental illness or disability, not to be criminally responsible or to be unfit for trial. This patient cohort also requires the input of Forensic Mental Health and Disability Services.
This report provides the findings of an expert independent review of Northern Territory (NT) Health services provided to people in contact with the criminal justice system or within the youth justice system, who have a mental health problem or a cognitive impairment.
