1Victorian Fixated Threat Assessment Centre

Established in 2018, the Victorian Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (VFTAC) is a joint Victoria Police and Forensicare (Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health) initiative. VFTAC aims to provide early assessment and intervention for individuals who pose a threat to themselves and others through their concerning behaviours who may have a mental illness or other mental health needs. This presentation will first provide an overview of VFTAC. It will then, through the use of case studies, highlight how VFTAC’s collaborative, preventative model can be applied to the assessment and management of persons at risk of engaging in grievance fuelled violence within the workplace. In particular, the role of, and input from intelligence analysts, police investigators and mental health clinicians in such cases will be discussed.


Emma Robertson is a senior mental health clinician employed by Forensciare and is currently working within the Victorian Fixated Threat Assessment Centre.
