Scottish Mental Health Act

Each country has their own Act. Scotland’s is regarded as one of the most comprehensive, patient-centred and useful, with a range of Orders and core underlying principles [the Millan Principles].

As well as the Act, learners should be aware of the Code of Practice [which tells you how it works in non-legal language], the Mental Welfare Commission [who monitor it’s use] and the Mental Health Tribunal [who run the legal implementation].
