When a person is subject to the Mental Health Act, many of his or her principal rights are taken away. It is the function of the nearest relative to compensate for that loss.

This fully updated second edition explains how the nearest relative is identified, and how in some cases he or she might be displaced. It also contains a wealth of new case examples and illustrative scenarios, providing a succinct discussion of each significant case and incorporating all the very latest changes to the Mental Health Act.

The Nearest Relative Handbook will be an invaluable aid to those who find themselves in a professional relationship with a nearest relative, to those who are or wish to be a nearest relative and to anyone needing to make sense of the relevant statutory provisions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the first edition:

'An excellent, comprehensive and thoughtful guide to the rights, powers, and duties of nearest relatives under the Mental Health Act. This is the definitive work on the subject.'

-- Phil Fennell, Professor of Law, Cardiff Law School
This intelligent and comprehensive analysis is a welcome addition to the currently scant literature in this area. -- Journal of Mental Health Law
There can hardly be a professional concerned with MeHA 1983 and its practical application in daily practice who will not benefit from having this book to hand... -- New Law Journal
Hewitt looks first at the development of the role of nearest relative, where it is now, the problems it presents and how these are likely to be resolved...The rules are comprehensively worked through and the examples clear. -- Tony Eaton, Solicitor, Brent Community Law Centre
