|About the Book|
This work explores the area of adults at risk with mental disorder in Scotland and how the contemporary legislative frameworks interrelate, and how the key statutory agencies and practitioners work collectively, to provide such individuals with support and protection. The work concerns adults, i.e. aged 16 and over, affected by mental disorder at risk to their health, welfare, safety, finances and property, and the primary Acts response to this range of risk. This book seeks to assist agencies and key practitioners in the objective of supporting and protecting adults at risk with mental disorder, by applying the primary Acts and their provisions collectively, in a practice based local context.
