Synopsis

The UK Mental Health Act 2007 will bring about the first major amendment of mental health legislation since the Mental Health Act 1983. Mental Health: The New Law provides a comprehensive, authoritative, and practical guide to the new UK legislation and its implications for lawyers, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health professionals. This book explains in clear terms the key changes in mental health law introduced by the new Act including: -- the new definition of mental disorder, and the changes to the exclusions in relation to sexual deviancy -- the changes to the 'treatability' test -- the relevance of incapacity and impaired decision-making toward decisions to detain and treat without consent -- new powers concerning the UK's Supervised Community Treatment and extended leave -- changes in the law regarding sentencing of mentally disordered offenders -- new provisions in relation to consent to treatment -- new 'Bournewood' procedures to deprive mentally incapacitated adults of their liberty -- changes in procedures and personnel appearing before UK Mental Health Review Tribunals
