Mental Health Law - Your health


Mental illness affects many people at some stage of their lives.


We can provide you with the expert advice if you are in hospital or on a Community Treatment Order or Guardianship Order, a relative of a patient or just in need of expert advice about mental health.


Legal Aid is available for all our services. This means that if you receive state benefits or are on a low income, you may not have to pay for our help.  If you are applying to the Mental Health Tribunal then legal aid is available regardless of your financial circumstances.
