The Mental Health Acts Annotated and Consolidated: Case Law and Commentary provides persons who use mental health services, mental health professionals, legal practitioners and other stakeholders with a comprehensive overview of the Irish legislation and recently enacted amending legislation. The annotation also provides commentary on the relevant case law and existing recommendations for law reform in Ireland.
Since the Mental Health Act 2001 was enacted and commenced there have been a number of important amendments to the legislation, notably:
Mental Health Act 2008 (No. 19 of 2008)
Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 (No. 25 of 2009) s.63
Mental Health (Amendment) Act 2018 (No. 10 of 2018)
Mental Health (Renewal Orders) Act 2018 (No.23 of 2018)
This annotation considers the potential impact of the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015 Act (not fully commenced) and the increasing synergies between this legislation and the Mental Health Act 2001.
