This site is intended for healthcare professionals
We are campaigning for mental health rights for people sectioned under the Mental Health Act
We want the Mental Health Act to change to:
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
We are crowdfunding
Please donate today to help us reshape the Mental Health Act to be more humane and compassionate.
Send us your stories
Send in your stories about how you might have been affected by sectioning under the Mental Health Act and why you'd like it to change to Barney.Cullum@pavpub.com. We will work with you to use these experiences to add to the government's review of the Mental Health Act.
