Section abh17a, Mental Health Act 2007 LCREM

A section of the Mental Health Act which replaces Section 25 of the 1983 Act, and makes provisions for supervised community treatment (SCT). To be eligible for SCT, a patient must be at risk of being detained under Section 3 of the Act or subject to certain specified provisions under Part III of the Mental Health Act (i.e., a hospital order, a hospital direction or a transfer direction without restrictions).

A community treatment order (CTO) cannot be made unless the responsible clinician is of the opinion that the “relevant criteria” are met, and an Approved Mental Health Professional agrees in writing with that opinion and that it is appropriate to make a CTO.
