Rights guide 5: mental health & the courts
Did you know - you can read and print this booklet for free?
This booklet is designed to answer some of the more common questions concerning mental health and the courts. It outlines what happens when the police charge you with an offence, and what 'unfit to plead' means, as well as what happens if you are remanded to prison. Fully revised in 2008 to reflect new legislation, in particular amendments made to the Mental Health Act 1983 by the Mental Heath Act 2007.
