Mental health and capacity
Dealing with a mental illness isn’t easy but, whatever your circumstances, you deserve to be treated fairly. At Mander Cruickshank Solicitors we work hard to ensure that mental health patients and their families and carers, are given the care and treatment they deserve and are entitled to.
If you or a loved one has a mental illness, there may be times when you need a legal expert to help you understand your rights or to act as your representative. We can help with everything from providing advice for people who have been sectioned to resolving disputes about medical treatment. We can also represent you at a mental health review tribunal, supporting and guiding you through the appeals process.
Our knowledgeable and approachable solicitors are on hand to discuss any aspect of mental health law. Mental health patients are often entitled to legal aid, which means our services could be provided free of charge. If you can’t get to our offices, we can usually arrange to visit you – either in hospital or at another location. Call us on 0333 2029 321 today for a confidential chat and to find out how we can help you.
