    • Abstract:
      Both the Mental Health Act (1983) and the Mental Capacity Act 2005 now have provisions that authorise the care and treatment of a person in circumstances that amount to a deprivation of liberty. In accordance with the requirements of article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights both regimes require a person to be suffering from a mental disorder before they can be subject to a deprivation of liberty. This article rebuts the assumption that practitioners can pick and choose which method to use when authorising a deprivation of liberty. It goes on to highlight the primacy of the Mental Health Act (1983) when a deprivation of liberty is necessary to treat a mental disorder in hospital or care home. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
