Scottish Mental Health Law Review
We are now in Phase 3 of the Review. This means we want to know what you think about some of our ideas and proposals for changes to mental health and incapacity law.
We have been developing our ideas and proposals in partnership with people with lived experience, unpaid carers, mental health practitioners and other people interested in this area.
We think these proposals could lead to a fundamental change to our mental health legislation and bring it in line with the ambitions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Your views will help us to refine, change or add to our ideas. This will then allow us to pull together a final set of recommendations for the Scottish Government later this year.
