On 13 January, we published the white paper ‘Reforming the Mental Health Act’.

The public consultation period on the white paper closed on 21 April. We are now analysing the consultation responses from the public and stakeholders. We will respond to the consultation this year, as part of our continuing work to develop a new Mental Health Bill.
