Mental Health Act Office
The Mental Health Act 1983 (MHA’83) is the legislation which provides the statutory processes professionals are required to follow when detaining an individual in hospital or supervising an individual in the community. The MHA’83 also provides processes which must be followed when providing treatment to detained individuals.
The Mental Health Act Department is based at the Glenbourne Unit. The department provides support to the mental health services within the organisation by providing advice, completing the administrative tasks relating to the MHA’83 and by monitoring that the requirements of the legislation are adhered to. The team also co-ordinates any appeals to the Tribunals or Hospital Managers.
