Ensuring that mental health laws protect human rights in both theory and practice is an ongoing challenge. This volume explores the effect that the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other international trends in human rights may have on domestic mental health laws. The topics covered include the criteria for civil commitment of individuals with serious mental illnesses, legal capacity and supported decision-making, advance directives, advocacy, community treatment orders and the importance of the integrity of the person in decisions to detain individuals for treatment. International Trends in Mental Health Law is a special issue (Volume 26 No 2) of the journal Law in Context. You can purchase a single copy of this issue through this page, or subscribe to the journal from the journal page.
