About the course

This training course is developed in conjunction with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust by Camilla Parker independent legal & policy consultant, Sarah Cannell, consultant social worker and Dr Dan Hayes, child psychiatrist. 

The purpose of the course is to provide participants with an understanding of the legal framework for the care and treatment of children and young people with complex mental health needs, highlighting the relevant key concepts, statutory provisions and safeguards when ascertaining the legal authority for detention and proposed interventions. This includes understanding when children and young people can be treated informally, the relationship between children and young people, their parents/carers and mental health professionals in decision-making, and when the application of the MHA 1983 should be considered. The provisions of the MHA 1983 that are relevant to admission to hospital, care and treatment in hospital, discharge, aftercare and the community are explained.
