In 2016 the Commission employed a researcher to gather longitudinal data from the Mental Health Review Tribunal regarding the care, treatment, detention and release of forensic patients, that is people in NSW found not guilty of an offence by reason of mental illness or found unfit to be tried and held in a corrections or mental health facility. In partnership with the University of New South Wales, the Commission has compiled the information into an electronic database to enable researchers to develop new understandings of how people move through the forensic system, and their access to treatment and rehabilitation services.
