Review Board for mental disorder

Annual Reviews

When the Review Board decides to conditionally discharge an accused to order his detention or continued detention, it must conduct a review with respect to the accused at least once a year in order to determine whether his mental condition has changed. This annual review is obligatory as long as the accused has not been absolutely discharged.

 

Exceptionally, this review may take place every 24 months.

 

Depending on the facts, when the hospital notices a significant change in the accused’s mental condition it will request the Review Board to hold a new hearing to review the accused’s mental condition. Based on the accused’s progress, the Review Board may therefore conduct a review with respect to the accused more than once in the same year.

 

This review may also be requested by a party (ex.: the accused) or be initiated by the Review Board.
