Mental Health and Scots Law in Practice (2ed)
The 2nd edition of this detailed text remains a straightforward account of the legal issues relevant to Scottish psychiatric practice. It explains how the Scottish legal system deals with mental health issues, and outlines psychiatric care systems; now fully updated to include developments since implementation of the Mental Health (Care Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003. Essential new areas covered include multi-disciplinary input, inclusion of the Code of Practice and important new research findings. There is key guidance on psychiatric systems and services for mentally disordered offenders and detail about the effectiveness of Tribunals. A description of the provisions of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000, as amended, is also provided.
