The Assessment and Referral Court (ARC) in the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria is designed for people who have been charged with a criminal offence and have a mental illness or cognitive impairment. It aims to help people address underlying factors that might contribute to their offending behaviour.
In this session, you will hear from an ARC magistrate and registrar, and Victoria Legal Aid. Find out how the ARC was established, requirements for participants and learn about the ARC expansion following the Royal Commission into the Victorian Mental Health System.
