27 February 2019

In this video, Rebecca Fitzpatrick looks at some of the most leading cases in relation to the Mental Health Act and Deprivation of Liberty, including the Supreme Court’s important decisions of 'MM' and 'PJ' which consider the interaction between the Mental Health Act and deprivation of liberty in the community. 

Rebecca also covers the subsequent case of 'AB' which focuses on the role of the High Court’s inherent jurisdiction in these types of cases, and the recent final report from the Mental Health Act independent review chaired by Professor Sir Simon Wessely.
