Covid-19 Mental Welfare Commission Advice Note (updated 28 August)

The Mental Welfare Commission is being contacted for advice on mental health care and treatment related to this pandemic

In light of this we have produced this updated advice note (version 14) 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 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.
