Who we are

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

The Network is part of the broader health system reporting to the Minister for Health through the Network Board and the Secretary, NSW Health.

What we do

The Network delivers health care to adults and young people in contact with the forensic mental health and criminal justice systems, across community, inpatient and custodial settings. 

The Network forms a vital component of the NSW public health system through its support of a highly vulnerable patient population whose health needs are often numerous and more complex than the wider community.

The Network is positioned with a unique opportunity to respond to the health needs of these individuals who commonly have had minimal contact with mainstream health services in the community.

In all contexts, the Network works closely with a variety of other organisations, including NSW Ministry of Health, Corrective Services NSW, Youth Justice NSW, local health districts, community controlled Aboriginal health organisations, NSW Police Force, Department of Communities and Justice, universities, community groups and advocacy groups.
