Mental Health Guidance

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs for what reasons the Mental Health guide was withdrawn from the Legal Services Commission’s “Improving your Quality” guides and if she will make a statement. (114869)

The Legal Services Commission (LSC) has withdrawn the Mental Health ‘Improving Your Quality’ guide following feedback from the profession. This is an independent guide, written by the mental health peer review panel. The LSC has facilitated the development, but is not a contributor. The LSC is working with the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and peer reviewers to provide more appropriate wording. The LSC hopes to reissue an amended mental health guide in the near future.
