PaCA – Summary Videos
written by Mental Health Cop on the 01st December 2017 at 0:15

This blog is part of the series which will cover, in detail, the amendments to the Mental Health Act 1983 within the Policing and Crime Act 2017. This post is one of several which relates not the amendments themselves, but to the implications arising from them.

For background to the series, see the introductory post which outlines why I’m doing this and what other specific issues will be covered concerning laws that will come in to effect in the next few months. We now know the changes will take place on 11th December 2017.

With every conceivable expense spared and filmed whilst on location at the exclusive Travelodge, Sale … here are two short videos which explain the main changes to the MHA which take effect on Monday 11th December.

Should take about 15mins to watch them both —
