IMHN publishes response to proposed Mental Health Act reforms

In January, the government launched a public consultation on proposed reforms to the Mental Health Act. This included publication of a white paper, setting out how the Act would be reformed. This was also the response to the Independent Review of the Mental Health Act, set up in 2017.

Members of the Independent Mental Health Network came together to develop a response to the consultation and proposed reforms. This was co-developed over two sessions, and was submitted to the Department of Health & Social Care on 21 April 2021.
