Covid-19 Mental Welfare Commission advice and information: updated 5 October

From the Mental Welfare Commission

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 16) for practitioners who are using the Mental Health Act and Adults with Incapacity Act when caring for patients. We have also updated our information for people using services and their family/carers (version 4).

Please read these and share them with those who may find them helpful. Please also note that they are 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.
