Secondary Services

This chapter describes the hospital services available for people with mental health problems. The majority of people who go into hospital for psychiatric treatment are there voluntarily but a small number are taken in under a section of the Mental Health Act. See the Users’ Rights section of the Mental Health Overview part of this guide for further details about the Mental Health Act, including an outline of the Act and an explanation of admission and discharge procedures. See the Advocacy and Legal Services chapter for details of mental health solicitors and organisations that can offer you support if you feel that your wishes are not being taken seriously.
