Rights guide 4: discharge from hospital
Did you know - you can read and print this booklet for free?
What do I do if I am detained in hospital against my will? This booklet tells you where to find help, who can tell you your rights, and how to apply to be discharged. It gives information on the mental health tribunal and the rights of your nearest relative. Fully revised in 2008 to reflect new legislation, in particular amendments made to the Mental Health Act 1983 by the Mental Heath Act 2007.
