Treatment Authorities under the Mental Health Act 2016 (Qld) — Sterling Law QLD

What is a treatment authority?   A treatment authority is an order made by an authorised doctor for the treatment of a person with a mental illness without that person’s consent. A treatment authority order can authorise the involuntary detention of the person receiving treatment at a mental health facility, or community-based treatment. 

Treatment authorities in Queensland are made under the Mental Health Act 2016 (Qld)
