How can a Kidlington Mental Health Solicitor help me?

Mental health law governs the care, treatment and decision-making for some of the UK's most vulnerable people. Examples of the key pieces of legislation in this field of law are described below:

The Mental Health Act 1983

The Mental Health Act 1983 offers guidelines on the laws surrounding the treatment and interactions with people impacted by a mental illness. The act outlines the methods in which a person can be hospitalised, treated and detained as a result of ‘mental disorder’ without their consent. Such actions are taken in order to protect the person and the wider community. The Act also offers guidance on when a Community Treatment Order (CTO) could be used after a patient's compulsory treatment in hospital. Approved professionals are used to assess and establish treatment needs in order to ensure that people are reviewed fairly and in a regulatory manner, as determined under the Mental Health Act.

The Mental Capacity Act 2005

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) was designed to offer protection and empower people that don't have the mental capacity to make their own decisions with regards to their treatment and care. All people over the age of 16 are protected by the act. The MCA also allows individuals to appoint a trusted individual who may make such decisions on their behalf if they lose the mental capacity to do so in the future. The MCA outlines the significance of assisting those who lack mental capacity to be involved and make decisions regarding their care wherever possible. The MCA also sets out the importance of keeping the best interests of the person who lacks mental capacity at heart when you make decisions on their behalf.

Making a Living Will

Advanced decisions or a living will as they are also called, work as a method of individuals communicating their preference to refuse specific kinds of treatment at some point in the future should they choose to. The advance decision acts as a option to inform relatives, carers and healthcare professionals that you wish to refuse specific treatments at a later date and so your wishes will be respected if you are unable to communicate them in the future. The document has to be specific and communicate the precise treatments that are to be refused as well as the situations in which they should not be given. Treatments that may help to save your life, referred to as life-sustaining treatments, can also be refused under the contents of the advance decision. Advance decisions can be created by any adult who has the mental capacity to make such choices. The advance decision contents has to be communicated to relatives and carers, and a copy should be saved on your medical records.
