Many social work students find the study of mental health legislation a complex and at times challenging process. Acts of law can seem irrelevant and far-removed from everyday practice and the person-centred approach that many social workers take. This book introduces students to the fundamental principles of mental health law and how they can be applied to everyday practice. There are clear introductions to key Acts such as the Mental Capacity Act and the Mental Health Act as well as the relevant Codes of Practice. These introductions, applied to social work case examples from practice, make this book a perfect key text for the social work law module. Students will see that mental health law doesn′t exist in a vacuum and instead develops and evolves through constant interaction with the fundamental principles of sound social work practice.

About the Author:

Simon Godefroy is Director of the London and Thames Valley Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) courses for Bournemouth University.

Review:

Godefroy’s text is a timely introduction to mental health law aimed particularly at the mental health social worker. It will most likely prove invaluable to students choosing to specialise in mental health. He provides very detailed and clear expectations of the processes involved in formal mental health assessments, what needs to take place in practice and how this happens. This will prove very illuminating and insightful for the non-AMHP and practitioner considering embarking on AMHP qualification. (Matthew Gough)
