If the person you care for is experiencing a mental illness, and is in contact with criminal justice or and forensic mental health systems, it can be a confusing and frustrating time. However there are people who you can talk to that can help provide you with more specific information about how to navigate these criminal justice and forensic mental health systems.

The Network welcomes families and carers as partners in care. Network staff aim to include the family and carers in assessment, treatment and discharge planning processes. We acknowledge the NSW Carers Charter in our partnering with families and carers. Click here to download your copy.
