    What we do

    Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network is a Statutory Health Corporation established under the Health Services Act (NSW) 1997 and is funded by NSW Ministry of Health.

    Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network provides health care in a complex environment to people in the adult correctional environment, to those in courts and police cells, to juvenile detainees and to those within the NSW forensic mental health system and in the community.

    In all contexts, Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network must work closely with a variety of other organisations, including NSW Ministry of Health, Corrective Services NSW, Juvenile Justice, Local Health Districts-, Community Controlled Aboriginal Health Organisations, NSW Police Force, Department of Attorney General & Justice, Universities, community groups and advocacy groups.

We are confident that through the efforts of our dedicated and professional staff we will continue to provide a health service that leads the way in international best practice for those who come into contact with the forensic mental health and NSW criminal justice systems.
