Mental Health Act 1983 Statutory Forms

England

In England, forms must comply with the Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship and Treatment) (England) Regulations 2008, as amended by Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship and Treatment) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 with effect from 1/12/20 (some forms were not changed by the 2020 regulations).

Description of icons:

  • : Editable Word documents (also on Gov.uk).
  • : Printable pink PDFs, updated for MHLO.
  • : Fillable pink PDFs, created for MHLO.
  • : Fillable smart PDFs from the MHA Free Form Project (see release notes and user guide).

N.B. All forms have the new "electronic forms" wording where appropriate. The updated pink forms state "Form amended by SI 2020/1072 for use from 1 December 2020" (this wording does not affect the validity of the forms any more than the name/address of a company selling the forms would).
