Legal Centre




Volunteering can be a great way to develop skills and to build professional and personal networks. Getting involved also offers a real opportunity to provide high quality, responsive legal advice to members of our community who are amongst those most likely to experience human rights abuses.

Consumers of mental health services often experience human rights abuses: from being detained and treated involuntarily, to being denied humane and dignified care, the highest standard of healthcare, an adequate standard of living and participation in the workforce, to being denied decision making capacity in relation to their finances or lifestyle issues.

The Mental Health Legal Centre occasionally has volunteering opportunities available. If you would like to express your interest, please send a CV to If we do not have vacancies we will keep it on file for when opportunities become available.
