Registration of Approved Centres

A ‘centre’ is defined in the Mental Health Act 2001 as “a hospital or other in-patient facility for the care and treatment of persons suffering from mental illness or mental disorder” and an approved centre is a centre that is registered by the Mental Health Commission. As the Mental Health Act 2001 prohibits unregistered centres, all facilities that operate as a ‘centre’, as defined above, must be registered under the 2001 Act by the Commission

Information on the process of applying for registration and registration pack, can be found in the Applying for Registration section.

Once a centre is registered by the Commission, it is entered in the Register of Approved Centres.
