New book Advising Clients with Mental Health Conditions by David Pickup is out this month.

This clear and practical book will assist you with a guide to common legal problems that clients with mental health problems experience and how to approach them to ensure vulnerable clients receive excellent advice.

Advising Clients with Mental Health Conditions is designed to aid solicitors in advising clients who have mental health problems, and their carers, and to assist the solicitors who represent clients at Mental Health Tribunals with the many other legal issues they may have.

 

The book provides practical advice on topics such as:

•             hospital admissions, discharge and client visits;

•             access to services, including complaints, for clients and their carers;

•             diverse legal needs, e.g. criminal, wills and probate, trusts and gifts, family, immigration, housing, employment and legal aid;

•             mental capacity law and the Mental Health Act 1983;

•             interaction between human rights laws and mental health; and

•             differences in mental health law and practice in Wales.

Clients with mental health conditions are entitled to the same quality advice and respect as any other client. This clear and practical book will provide practitioners with a guide to common legal problems that clients with mental health problems experience and how to approach them, to ensure vulnerable clients receive excellent advice.
