Psychiatry has gone through some dramatic changes since the
early days of the asylum. Now, the opinion that the doctor knows
best is replaced by working within the Triangle of
Care (Carers Trust, 2015), whereby
professionals, patients and carers all work as part of a team to
achieve the best outcomes for the patient and for all involved.
The lived and caring experience is brought to this module
by Elaine Hewis, who shares her personal experience of being
detained under the Mental Health Act, as well as supporting a
family member who has been detained.
Within this module is the experience of
section 136 (s.136), appealing detention and the appropriateness of
and attempt to remove a nearest relative.
This module will encourage you to look at your
use of language, both in assessment and in your documentation.
