The Mental Welfare Commission is being contacted for advice on mental health care and treatment related to this pandemic.
In light of this, and in anticipation of emergency legislation currently going through Parliament, we have produced this updated advice note (version 8) for practitioners who are using the Mental Health Act and Adults with Incapacity Act when caring for patients.
Please read this Advice Note and share it with colleagues who may find it helpful.
Please also note that it will likely be updated frequently as the situation develops. We will issue updates, but please also check our website for the latest version.
We hope you find this helpful and ask that you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
You can find the Advice Note here.
With our staff now all working from home, please also see here for details of contacting the Commission at this time.
