The office is open and takes calls Tuesday to Friday 9.00 am to 5.00pm. The MHLC provides expert legal assistance for people with co-occurring mental health and legal concerns. We support clients and provide legal representation at Mental Health Tribunal hearings. We also take on non-project specific casework that is complex and varied dealing with many difficult legal problems faced by our clients.
