This page tells you about how we are running the review.
Our three stages:
September 2018 – November 2018
Finding out what people’s experience is and what we know already about the Mental Health Act.
March 2019 – May 2019
Thinking about ideas of how to make the law better if this is needed, so that it better supports people’s human rights.
August 2019 – November 2019
Asking people what they think of what we’ve found.
The review will produce its final report in December 2019.
