Regulating the use of force in Mental Health units

Last week I contributed to a bill that would basically regulate the use of force against people in mental health units. There are too many innocent people who are hurt or sometimes worse, when they are most in need and at their most vulnerable.

I was disappointed that this was delayed by one MP and now has to come back for more debate. I asked the Health Minister if she agrees with me that it is vital that this bill is passed as soon as possible.

Supporting people with mental health is not a catchphrase – it needs actions like this to be taken.
