A Practitioner's Guide to Mental Health Law is a comprehensive and practical guide written by a leading practitioner in the field. This step by step guide to practice and procedure identifies common areas of difficulty and provides suggested solutions. Those areas of most concern to mental health lawyers are covered in depth to provide a clear and easy-to-read source of key information. The book examines all aspects of this complex, but fascinating area of law and particular attention is paid to areas of rapid expansion such as that of mental capacity. Structured in an accessible way, this book will guide you through the key issues. Topics covered include: * Community care rights * Principal types of psychiatric disorder * Admission to hospital under the Mental Health Act 1983 * Police Powers * Mentally disordered offenders * Admission to hospital and treatment of children and young persons * Treatment under the Mental Health Act and the Mental Capacity Act * The rights of detained patients * Discharge powers * Aftercare, guardianship and decision making under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 * Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and citizenship rights There is also a guide to the statutory and regulatory framework, a glossary of key terms and participants, suggestions for further reading, links to key organisations and other sources of useful information and an up-to-date and definitive guide to all relevant case law. Mental Health Law also features case studies, checklists and frequently asked questions, all presented in a clear, concise and cost-effective format.
