Repeal of the Mental Health Act: What happens now? – Thursday 6 July

In the run up to the General Election, the Conservative party was clear that if elected, it would wish to repeal the Mental Health Act 1983. Following the results of the election, the political landscape is uncertain.

However, the business of government must continue and reform of this area of law may still remain official government policy.

The issue of repeal was not something that had been carefully discussed in advance of the election and little information has been provided about what is intended.

We specialise in advising mental health providers and are therefore proposing to provide a report to the Department of Health on what works well in the current Act, what works less well, and what would be good to see in a new Act.

With this in mind, we invite mental health professionals to join us at an ‘open think tank’ session at our offices to discuss these topics and assist in the formulation of this report.
