We are campaigning for mental health rights for people sectioned under the Mental Health Act

We want the Mental Health Act to change to:

  • honour advance notices
  • give individuals the right to know what treatment is planned for them when they are first sectioned for mental health care
  • allow individuals to nominate which relative can advocate for them if they are too distressed to advocate for themselves
  • connect individuals and relatives to a directory of advocates at the first opportunity
  • require BAME representatives to be involved in all risk-assessment decisions and for all mental health professionals to have received substantive cultural awareness training
