Abstract

This chapter examines the various ways in which a period of compulsion, whether in hospital or in the community, imposed under the terms of the Mental Health Act (MHA) 1983, can be brought to an end. The discussions cover the discharge of Part II patients from hospital, guardianship, or a community treatment order; discharge of Part III patients; mental health review tribunals; substantive powers of discharge; tribunal and decisions; and challenging tribunal decisions.
