Product Description

Review

"'An excellent, comprehensive and thoughtful guide to the rights, powers, and duties of nearest relatives under the Mental Health Act. This is the definitive work on the subject.' - Phil Fennell, Professor of Law, Cardiff Law School 'This intelligent and comprehensive analysis is a welcome addition to the currently scant literature in this area.' - Journal of Mental Health Law 'There can hardly be a professional concerned with MeHA 1983 and its practical application in daily practice who will not benefit from having this book to hand...' --- New Law Journal"

as an approved mental health professional I find this book very helpful and would have thought even more helpful for those people who find themselves nearest relatives.

Just about to do my AMHP and was advised to get this as a core text, hopefully will find it as useful as colleagues are recommending. Will let you know when I finish my studies - fingers crossed.
