Mental Health Act Code of Practice

This information is for patients, friends and family who want to know more about the mental health act code of practice and their rights.

We have made 16 fact sheets and 3 posters trying to give support people and families to understand key information about their rights under the mental health act and explain the rules professionals must follow.

We also made 4 films to help people understand their rights around:

  • Tribunals
  • Family, friends and carers,
  • Care and treatment
  • Cultural and other needs
