Review of Mental Health Law in Scotland

A Review is being carried out into the way mental health law is working in Scotland. This Review was set up by the Scottish Government, but it is independent from them. 

The aim of the Review is to improve the rights and protections of people affected by the mental health, incapacity or adult support and protection laws because they have, or used to have, a mental disorder. This includes carers or supporters of people affected by these laws. 

The Review would like you to draw on your experience of working in Mental Health Law in Scotland. 

A human rights approach is being taken to the review. This means that at all times, the review is asking how mental health law promotes and protects human rights, and if it could do this in better ways.
