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

Mental Health Act Training - E-Learning Courses - Mandatory Compliance UK -

Welcome to our online Mental Health Act training course for those who work in health and social care, security services and other similar settings. 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. However, 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.

The Mental Health Act was designed to protect the rights of people with mental health problems, and to ensure that they are only admitted to hospital against their will when it is essential to ensure their well-being or safety, or for the protection of other people.
It is essential for frontline health and social care workers to be familiar with the core aspects of the Act.
