This is the Mental Health Law Online email discussion list, primarily for mental health practitioners. It covers all aspects of mental health law in England & Wales, from the Mental Health Act 1983 and the Mental Health Tribunal, to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Court of Protection.

Joining the discussion list is separate from subscribing to receive Email updates, and separate from the online forum.

Subscribing to the discussion list

Subscribe to Discussion by filling out the following form. You will be sent email requesting confirmation, to prevent others from subscribing you. Once confirmation is received, your request will be held for approval by the list moderator. You will be notified of the moderator's decision by email. This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is available only to the list administrator. The system will generate a password for you. Once a month, your password will be emailed to you as a reminder.
