Scottish Mental Health Law Review

Scottish Mental Health Law Review - Phase 3

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 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).

The consultations are now closed and we are really grateful to everyone who responded.
