Anyone who has a genuine concern for the welfare of a person with a mental disability can make an application to the Board.
Specific application forms are available on request to the Board's office. They are not available via the internet as many matters including guardianship and medical treatment issues can often be resolved without a formal application to the Board.
The Board's office must be contacted for advice before an application is lodged.
When you contact the Board's office, an officer of the Board will discuss the issues with you and advise on whether a formal application is the appropriate course or if other less restrictive alternatives should be pursued.
The Board's phone number is (03) 6165 7500.
More information about the Board's role and processes is available from the Guardianship and Administration Board's website.
