The Mental Health Act is currently being reviewed in response to concerns about the way it is being used. One of the ways they are doing this is through a survey, in order to hear about service users’ and carer’s experiences of the Act.

The Mental Health Act is the law in England and Wales that covers the assessment, treatment and rights of people with a mental disorder. It covers when a person can be admitted, detained and treated in hospital for their mental disorder, as well as safeguards to protect people’s rights if they are detained. http://bit.ly/2EtxfVn
