Mental Health Act

The Mental Health Act 2007 (MHA) is the law in England that controls what services can do, when they are trying to assess or treat someone, against their will.

There are six main sections of the Act. There are other sections which apply to someone who comes to hospital from court or prison.

You can find out about what happens when you are placed on a section of the Mental Health Act. If you are confused about what section you are on please speak to a member of staff.
