THE MAZE - Fifth Edition 2019

A Practical Guide to the Mental Health Act 1983 (Amended 2007)

This completely revised edition of The Maze is published following the implementation of the 2007 Mental Health Act. It covers these important changes as well as changes contained within the 2005 Mental Capacity Act; 1998 Human Rights Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards which were introduced in April 2009.

It also covers significant changes in how Mental Health Tribunals are organised and the new role of the Care Quality Commission (previously the Mental Health Act Commission) in safeguarding the rights of people detained under the Mental Health Act.

This fifth edition includes the important changes to the Mental Health Act contained in the 2017 Policing and Crime Act which are dealt with in a substantially rewritten Chapter 7 of this Guide.

This Guide does not attempt to compete with more academic publications but seeks to present information about what is often a confusing and complex subject in a way which is both user-friendly and accessible to its readers.
