Register of Approved Centres

Last updated 10 January 2017

The Mental Health Commission maintains the Register of Approved Centres and the centres listed below are the centres currently on the Register. Subject to the provisions of the Mental Health Act 2001, each centre's registration lasts for three years from the date of registration.

Glossary

Registered Proprietor: The ‘registered proprietor’ is the person whose name is entered in the register as the person carrying on the centre. In this case, a person can also mean a corporate body such as a company or a state agency.
Patient: ‘Patient’ refers to a person to whom an admission order or renewal order relates, i.e., a person who is involuntarily admitted pursuant to Section 14 of the Mental Health Act 2001. This does not include a person under the age of 18, unless that person is, or has been, married.
Resident: A ‘resident’ is a person receiving care and treatment in an approved centre. The term ‘resident’ includes both voluntary and involuntary patients
