Mental Health Act – White Paper Consultation
The Government has prepared a response to the Mental Health Act review carried out by Professor Sir Simon Wesley. The first draft of the white paper has been out for consultation. The white paper outlined new guiding principles of the Act:
- Choice and autonomy
- Least restrictive
- Therapeutic benefit
- The person as an individual
ELFT has contributed to the consultation process which has now ended. We await the publication of the white paper later this year. It will then start on its journey through Parliament.
