Consultation on Code of Practice on the Mental Health Act 2001
The Mental Health Commission has started work on developing a Code of Practice on the Mental Health Act 2001. A code of practice on the Act would give guidance on the exercise of functions under the 2001 Act. In other words, it would explain how certain parts of the legislation are best put into practice.
The Commission completed the first phase of consultation on the code of practice in May 2010. The consultation report containing feedback received is now available.
