Mental Health Act 2007 - Online Training Course - Level 2 - CPDUK Accredited.

Mental Health Act 2007 - Online Training Course - the Mandatory Training Group UK -

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Mental Health Act 2007 training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

In most cases, when people are treated in a hospital or another mental health facility, they have agreed or volunteered to be there. They may be referred to as a voluntary patient. But there are cases when a person can be detained, also known as sectioned, under the Mental Health Act (1983) and treated without their agreement.

The Mental Health Act (1983) is the primary piece of legislation that covers the assessment, treatment and rights of people with a mental health disorder. The 2007 Mental Health Act made several critical changes to the 1983 Mental Health Act, which laid down provision for the compulsory detention and treatment of people with mental health problems in England and Wales. All healthcare and social care workers need to know how the Mental Health Act affects their work.
