Information for whānau and family of someone being assessed and treated under the Mental Health Act

Your whānau member may be treated under the Mental Health Act (the Act) if they experience significant mental health challenges. Their mental health practitioner will find out:

  • if their challenges are putting themselves or someone else at risk.

These considerations form part of the criteria used for people to be assessed under the Act.
