Victorian Fixated Threat Assessment Centre

Established in 2018, the Victorian Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (VFTAC) is a state-wide service that works specifically with people who pose threats to others, many of whom have a major mental illness or current mental health needs. VFTAC is a partnership between Forensicare and Victoria Police and is jointly staffed by a team of senior forensic mental health clinicians and police officers.

The primary purpose is to assess individuals of concern and develop management plans, which may involve engaging or re-engaging with mental health services. The VFTAC model is proactive, preventative, and targeted towards early intervention.
