Forensic Leave Panel - sessional psychologist members

Applications are invited for appointment of psychologist members to the Forensic Leave Panel

The Minister for Mental Health, the Hon Martin Foley MP, would like to invite applications for the appointment of sessional psychologist members to the Forensic Leave Panel (the Panel).

The Panel is an independent tribunal established under the Crimes (Mental Impairment and Unfitness to be Tried) Act 1997 to hear applications for on-ground and limited off-ground leave from forensic patients and residents in mental health or residential services.

Psychologist members must be a registered psychologist under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (Victoria) Act 2009 and have experience in the fields of intellectual disability and forensic psychology.

Members are appointed for terms of up to four years by the Governor in Council and are paid sitting fees as determined by the Governor in Council.

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring that government boards and committees reflect the composition of the Victorian community. This includes appropriate representation of women, regional Victorians, Aboriginal people, young Victorians, Victoria’s culturally diverse community and Victorians with disability.

Application forms and further information can be found at:
