In March 2022, the Scottish Mental Health Law Review Team launched a consultation paper outlining their proposals and recommendations for change to mental health law and practice. This comprehensive consultation exercise closed on 27th May 2022. After the launch of the consultation, the Forensic Network sought input from colleagues across the Network Professional Groups and Clinical Leads in order to develop a full and considered response. A copy of the Forensic Network response to the Consultation is now available below for information.

The Review team have now also produced a discussion paper focusing specifically on proposals relating to forensic aspects of mental health law and incapacity legislation. The Forensic Network will be hosting a webinar with members of the Review team on Tuesday 21st June at 10am to offer those interested an opportunity to share their views and provide feedback to the review team.
