At 10am on 01st May, the interim report of Professor Sir Simon Wesselyâ€™s review of the Mental Health ACt 1983, commissioned by the Prime Minister in late 2017, will be published.
If you check the UK GovernmentÂ website after 10am on 01st May, you will be able to access a copy of the report.Â I had a copy of this report last week and for what itâ€™s worth, I think itâ€™s as good as I hoped it could be for an interim update and Iâ€™m pleased to see the police role in our mental health system highlighted as it is, especially given the reviewâ€™s observations about how that role has become what it is.
This very short post is just to provide the link to it â€“ I will blog on this later once the report is public and Iâ€™m freer to say more.
