An internet resource on mental health law in England & Wales, primarily for mental health practitioners, to which anyone can contribute.

There are currently three sections to this website, which hopefully will develop as follows:

Caselaw   Legislation   General information

Regularly updated commentaries on the cases, with links to the full text judgments on Bailii.(Bailii contains nearly every judgment, but no specific commentary.)
A simple and up-to-date commentary on the Mental Health Act 1983 and related legislation.
General articles to explain the concepts and terminology used in the caselaw and legislation sections.

The current content is skeletal; you are encouraged to add flesh to the bones. The process is simple. At the top of each page there is an 'Edit' option – just click on it, edit the page, then click 'Save'. Select 'Help' on the navigation menu for further information.
