Ian Cummins looks at the experiences of people who have been subject to compulsory mental health legislation and admitted to hospital against their will.
AsifAMHP"In 2015/16, there were 63,662 detentions under the MHA. This represented an increase of 9% from the 2014/15 figure of 58,399. This is quite a staggering statistic."
AsifAMHP"On 31 March 2016, 5,954 patients were detained in private hospitals. This represents 30% of all detained patients. This is the highest percentage since 2006, when 17% of patients were detained in private hospitals."
AsifAMHP"Coercion and power in psychiatry is a hugely important area, but one that is surprisingly under-researched. The focus has been on trends......little work on the experiences of either those who have been subject to these powers or those who exercise them."
