Mental Capacity And Mental Health

In general terms, mental capacity cases concern individuals’ ability to make decisions for themselves and the judgment of their best interests where they cannot, whereas mental health law governs the care and treatment (whether voluntary or compulsory) of those with a mental disorder. Although distinct areas of law, they both concern fundamental rights and as concern for the protection of these rights grows, issues in this area are of increasing significance for central government, local government, the National Health Service, and private care homes.
