22/11/2018 - As part of the forensic mental health reforms, NSW Parliament recently passed the Mental Health (Forensic Provisions) Amendment (Victims) Bill 2018. A new Specialist Victims Support Service (SVSS) will be established in Victims Services, Department of Justice. The new service will establish and operate the Specialist Victims Register for victims of forensic patients found unfit at a special hearing or not guilty by reason of mental illness. There will be a period of transition moving from the existing Forensic Patient Victims Register run by the Mental Health Review Tribunal to the Specialist Victims Register. During this time the Mental Health Review Tribunal will still be the main contact for registered victims. SVSS will contact registered victims in early 2019. For more information on how the forensic mental health reforms will improve victims experiences and increase their engagement with the legal process please refer to the NSW Department of Justice website.
