Mental Health Act - Code of Practice Easy Read
The Mental Health Act (1983) is the main piece of legislation that covers the assessment, treatment and rights of people with a mental health disorder. The Mental Health Act Code of Practice tells people and services how to use this law and what they must do.
NHS.uk has published a range of leaflets to explain the parts of the Code that are most important to patients and carers. This means they explain in detail what information you should get if you are sectioned, what health professionals should or shouldn't do and what your rights and choices are. You can download or print out each leaflet. Speak to your family, friends, carers, or your mental health team and ask them to explain anything that is unclear to you.
