Interim Report: MHA Review
written by Mental Health Cop on the 01st May 2018 at 8:23

At 10am on 01st May, the interim report of Professor Sir Simon Wessely’s review of the Mental Health ACt 1983, commissioned by the Prime Minister in late 2017, will be published.

If you check the UK Government website after 10am on 01st May, you will be able to access a copy of the report.  I had a copy of this report last week and for what it’s worth, I think it’s as good as I hoped it could be for an interim update and I’m pleased to see the police role in our mental health system highlighted as it is, especially given the review’s observations about how that role has become what it is.

This very short post is just to provide the link to it – I will blog on this later once the report is public and I’m freer to say more.
