Submission to the Review of the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011

Social Action and Research Centre Submission

This is a comprehensive submission based on advice from service users with ‘lived experience’ of the current Mental Health Act. Anglicare believes that the Draft Bill does not yet make full use of this once-in-a-decade opportunity to embed best practice policies and principles within mental health legislation. The submission lays out a strong philosophical framework and 24 specific recommendations covering language used, advanced care directives, social supports, mental capacity and treatment orders.
