Patient Rights Booklet
In 1996 the Western Australian mental health laws changed significantly. This booklet helps people understand what these changes mean and how their legal rights have been altered.
The booklet is designed to help anyone involved in the mental health system to understand what happens and why, but most importantly who has the power to do what and when.
The information is important for involuntary patients – knowing their rights and responsibilities can help them protect themself and help them gain greater control over their own life.
