Mental Health

Below are the relevant sectors, services and other tags related to this collection.

This collection looks at the latest news, comment and development on the law affecting mental health services.

The law affecting mental health services is constantly changing and has been a focus for regulators and legal challenges. Maintaining service user safety and wellbeing within the relevant legal frameworks can be problematic and when incidents do occur they can be particularly sensitive. Navigating the interface between the Mental Health Act and the Mental Capacity Act can be a minefield for providers, as can managing new requirements to share information as part of the integrated health and social care agenda.
