Scottish Mental Health Law Review

Consultation - June 2022 - Additional Proposals

Our March 2022 consultation set out some of the proposals for change to mental health and incapacity law put forward by the Executive team of the Scottish Mental Health and Incapacity Law Review (the Review). We are really grateful to everyone who responded to that consultation.

We said that we would be doing more work on specific areas and seeking views, before writing our final report, which will be given to Scottish Ministers by the end of September. These areas included work on advance statements, independent advocacy and how criminal law and mental health law work together (forensic proposals). This consultation ask for your views on these subjects.

Like our other consultations you can answer as few or as many of the questions as you wish.

This consultation is open until 22 July 2022.
