Summary
This is a 'how to' book guiding clinicians through the mental health legislation that they need to understand and use in their daily practice. It includes practical advice on detaining and treating patients, civil and court detentions, community treatment orders, consent to treatment and giving written and oral evidence for Mental Health Tribunals. As well as the Mental Health Act 1983 and its amendments of 2007 and 2012 (as a result of the Health and Social Care Act 2012), the book includes relevant aspects of the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (including the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards). The past two years have seen significant new case law that has a bearing on clinical decision-making, especially concerning the interface between the Mental Health Act and the Mental Capacity Act, and has aided clarification of deprivation of liberty. This third edition also includes: new statutory instructions for requirements to become section 12 and/or Approved Clinician approved and new guidance for applying for approval; and the amendments to the Mental Health Tribunal rules and directions for reports. Tony Zigmond is a psychiatrist with many years' experience of using the legislation in his clinical practice. The book is written using the language of clinicians and includes practical answers to many of the questions regularly asked of the author during the numerous training courses for section 12 approval and Approved Clinician training that he has given. - Written for clinicians - not lawyers! - An essential guide for all users of the Mental Health Act. - Practical advice and answers to real-life clinical questions. - Includes lists of which form is required for what purpose. - Readable and useful for everyday practice. Readership: Psychiatrists and other doctors wishing to be section 12 approved. Psychiatrists and other doctors wishing to become Approved Clinicians. All mental health professionals, in England and Wales, who use the provisions of the Mental Health Act (1983) in their clinical practice
