Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act and Analysis is a practical, accessible text written to bring the full text of the Act as well as an essential analysis of the Act into one convenient, easy-to-use reference. It contains the full text of the Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act 1992, along with a detailed introduction, in-depth section-based commentary and the Mental Health (Forms) Regulations 1992.
The foreword is written by Emeritus Professor John Dawson, Faculty of law, University of Otago who states:
To help promote the fair and effective administration of the Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act, those who operate it need ready access, firstly to the Act itself, and then, preferably, to a short account of the Act’s central principles, and to summaries of judicial and tribunal decisions on its interpretation. That is exactly what this book provides: an accessible account of the Act of that kind. It should prove very useful to those working in this demanding, though rewarding, field.
This book is an essential guide for lawyers, members of the judiciary, clinicians, and those working with or supporting people who come under the scope of the Act.
