The Department of Health and Social Care want to make mental health care better for people.

With the government planning to change the Mental Health Act law, the department have decided to outline their own desire to make changes so people do not stay in hospital unless they need to. They also want the changes to stop people being taken to a police or prison cell when waiting for care and treatment.

All of the new ideas have been written in a draft bill. By clicking the link, you can look at these proposals before they are made final by Parliament.
