Course content

Mental health has become a priority for governments throughout the world as research reveals the significant impact that mental health problems have on economies and society. Mental health problems harm the prospects of the individual affected and of people around them. In many countries the law is rapidly evolving to reduce and prevent harm to the individual and people around them that may arise due to mental health problems. Legal safeguards for patients and clinicians are now an integral part of mental health practice. Knowledge of these safeguards is essential to maintain compliance with European and International legislation on human rights and with clinical practice competencies.
