Sophie contacted Ruah Legal Services whilst on a Community Treatment Order (CTO).
She was unhappy with her diagnosis of Schizophrenia and the prescribed medication for that diagnosis. Sophie was scheduled to appear before the Mental Health Tribunal for a review of her CTO and sought representation.
Sophie met with a lawyer to discuss her concerns with the CTO, diagnosis and treatment. Initially, Sophie struggled to understand the legal perspective of the CTO. The lawyer was able to explain the legal criteria which are required to be met in order to maintain the CTO.
