Mind is a leading mental health charity in England and Wales and has produced information on many areas of mental health. This is the second of a two part review of legal support for patients under the Mental Health Act. The first part of the review looked at the role of the solicitor in the representation of patients detained under the existing Mental Health Act 1983. This second part looks at the implications of the proposed new Mental Health Act on legal support of the patient. This resource appeared in the Mind publication 'Diverse Minds' magazine.
