Community Treatment and Transition

The Community Treatment and Transition (CTT) Program is part of Forensicare’s Community Forensic Mental Health Service.
The CTT program oversees the treatment, care and supervision for forensic and civil patients transitioning from Thomas Embling Hospital to ensure they are well supported through their reintegration back into the community.

The program assists forensic patients (patients as defined under the Crimes (Mental Impairment and Unfitness to be Tried) Act 1997) to meet the conditions of their Extended Leave until they progress onto a non-custodial supervision order. From this point the supervision of Forensic Patients is coordinated by Forensicare’s Non-Custodial Supervision Order Program.

For civil patients (patients treated under the Mental Health Act 2014), the program can provide post-discharge assistance to enable smooth linkage to area mental health service and community based support.
