Updates: Stage 1 evidence gathering has ended

Between September and November the review team gathered evidence from people with experience of the Mental Health Act and learning disability or autism. We visited hospital wards and met with people who were subject to the Act at that time. We also heard from people who filled in our surveys. This included people with lived experience, carers, Disabled PersonsOrganisations, professionals and professional organisations. Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to take part. We are now carefully analysing all the evidence we have received. This evidence is helping us to decide what we need to focus on in Stage 2, which begins in March. We will update the website with more information about Stage 2 soon.
