Mental Health Law UK (Example)

Document Preview:

Issues of Mental Health Laws Name Instructor Affiliate University Issues of mental health law. Mental Health Laws have been in existence in the UK for quite some time now. The notable changes in 1983 are still widely applicable to the current society. The MHA of 1983 and its subsequent sections explicitly describes how best the society and a hospital at large could handle the case of an individual who is mentally incapacitated. At some points the mental incapacitation may be considered based on the individual’s odd behaviour that may warrant an admission or special case handling. The medical institutions have always used – most cases family medical history and consequently the family consent on practicing the medical instructions availed by the system. Below are some scenarios of perceived mental crisis and how the MHA sections 2 3 and 4 were applied.

Order Description:

UK references ONLY. OSCOLA referencing 3 scenarios Assessment Task ------ Discuss the issues of mental health law in all the following scenarios: ------ -------(A) D is admitted to hospital under s.4, Mental Health Act 1983 on May 1. Four days later the nurse in charge of his ward refuses to let him go out because he is not mentally well enough. Within five hours he is put on s.3 after special arrangements have been made by Dr. Remo, a consultant psychiatrist, who, together with D, owns the Den of Bacchus, the most popular wine bar in town. Dr. Remo is also the twin brother of D and Castro, the maker of the application for admission under section 3, to which their mother has strongly objected. D is very unhappy that after four weeks of his admission under section 3, no one has bothered to inform him about his rights under the Mental Health Act 1983, as amended. (100 Marks) --------(B) On April 1 E is admitted to hospital under s2, MHA 1983. He is put on section 2 again on the 28th April because his mental state warrants his further stay in hospital. He, however, thinks he is alright and ought to be allowed to leave hospital to go home. Besides, he is unhappy about the fact that, despite his objections, he is given an injection and then secluded because of his violent behaviour towards the ward staff as well as other patients in the ward.

After crossing the road he starts talking and singing to a coin he sees on the pavement. About a dozen shoppers gather around watching him.
