Mental Health

Abolishment of Mental Health Act with a replacement of Mental Health Bill.

(a) Citizens Protection Penitentiary (CPP)

This is a one year institutional establishment were patients who are sectioned are kept for rehabilitation for the public protection.

The mental rehabilitation of these patients is in order to correct their metal disability and they are not detained for more than one year for the public protection.

CPP is achieved by the public raising concerns against an individual mental state, or the police concern against an individual mental state, or family, friends and relatives raising concern against an individual mental state

(b) Impatient Consent Admission (ICA)

Patients in this category can voluntarily go into the hospital for admission.

Under the CPP after 28days of assessment, patients are then allowed under the ICA to give their consent for further admission if their psychiatrists feels they have the capability to do so on the grounds they need further treatment.

ICA maximum stay in hospital is 6months

(c) Mental Parole Board (MPB)

Is set up as a board of adjudicator deciding the mental ability of patients with total holistic approach.

This is where patients who are deemed to be seriously unwell and has been in hospital for maximum 3years are nominated for their privileges to be considered by the MPB.

Mangers of wards were patients are on admission under sectioned can randomly select named beneficiary patients for the parole board to consider their 6months community leave for trial without a clinical decision of the RMO or Consultant or Doctor.

If patients can prove efficient functionality in the community without concern, they are further granted 6months by the MPB for the second time. “If this leave are utilised by patients judiciously without any complain or concern raise against them, then the MPB can discharge the patients”.

Reasons have been that most clinical decision has been proven to be wrong.

The MPB approach is a consideration of a holistic care.
