Our mental health solicitors advise clients who are detained under the Mental Health Act. We represent clients at First-tier Tribunal hearings, in the Upper Tribunal, the High Court, the County Court and at Hospital Managers’ hearings.

We hold a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide mental health law services across the South & South East, South West & Midlands and East. In certain circumstances, we can offer advice, assistance and representation to clients outside of these areas.

Our mental health lawyers have expertise in all areas of mental health law, including:
• civil and forensic sections of the Mental Health Act
• appeals against decisions of the First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health)
• mental disorders affecting older people
• mental disorders affecting adolescents
• section 117 discharge care planning
• human rights issues

Funding for mental health work is undertaken on a public funding (Legal Aid) basis subject to eligibility or on a private basis. Representation before the First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health) is non-means-tested.
