Abolish the Mental Health Act and legislate for new forms of support
The Mental Health Act is one of the few areas of law where individuals can be detained against their will despite having committed no crime, and given medical treatment without their consent. This appears inconsistent with both the Equality Act and Human Rights Act.
The Government should abolish the Mental Health Act and legislate for new forms of support for people experiencing distress, oriented around an individual’s human rights.
