About the event

A one-day symposium for mental health professionals and lawyers.

Presented by the RANZCP Faculties of Addiction Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry, in collaboration with ANZAPPL (Vic).

Recent high-profile cases throughout Australia and New Zealand have highlighted the impact of methamphetamine (‘ice’) use on mental health and violent offending.

In this one-day symposium, expert legal and psychiatric speakers will explore the relevant issues in depth, including:

  • The complexity of diagnosis in the context of methamphetamine use.
  • Current evidence-based treatment approaches for methamphetamine use.
  • The possible role of the ‘mental impairment’ (“insanity”) defence.
  • Ethical, policy and legal issues around mitigation of criminal responsibility when methamphetamine use is involved in alleged offending.
