More than 108,000 documents examined by Wacol inquiry

AN INQUIRY into the closure of a Wacol youth mental health facility has examined more than 108,000 documents.

The inquiry into the controversial 2014 closure of the Barrett Adolescent Centre in Wacol has heard vast amounts of documents have been examined - with more still being handed in.

Paul Freeburn, counsel assisting the Commissioner Margaret Wilson, told the inquiry about 280 new documents had been delivered last Friday along.

The inquiry will look into the facility's closure and is expected to take up to four weeks.

The Newman Government closed the Wacol-based centre in 2014 without a replacement.

Within eight months three former patients had died.

The BAC was the only long-term residential centre for youth with severe and complex mental health problems.

The inquiry continues. - APN NEWSDESK
