The Australian Mental Health Commission is investigating the mental state of a former school teacher who died last year after having an examination of her mental state.
The hearing is set to start in Sydney on January 20.
The commission’s executive director, Paul White, said on Friday the commissioner would consider the report of a coronial inquest into the death.
He said the commission had been informed of the case by the family of the former teacher.
“She was the first person in Australia to undergo a mental state examination in relation to the coronial inquiry,” he said.
The former teacher was found unresponsive in her car on the outskirts of Brisbane on December 6 last year.
She was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
An inquest into her death was opened and the coroner’s report into the circumstances surrounding her death will be published next week.
