In amending the Mental Health Act 1983 to deliver our policy objectives, our intention is to repeal some elements of that Act. In particular, our plans are to introduce:
a new and simplified definition of mental disorder, which would involve amending those provisions that refer to different categories of mental disorder;
an appropriate treatment test, which would involve repealing provisions which relate to the so-called treatability test; and
supervised community treatment, which would involve the abolition of aftercare under supervision.
