Mental Health Act review published

The findings and recommendations from the major independent review have been released

Late last year the Independent Review of the Mental Health Act 1983 published its final report, with around 150 recommendations for change. The review had been announced by the prime minister and aimed to review the Act, which sets out when a person can be detained and treated in hospital against their wishes, to look at how it is used and how it can be improved.

It particularly sought to examine rising rates of detention under the Act, the disproportionate number of people from black and minority ethnic groups detained, and processes that are out of step with a modern mental health care system.
