Draft Guidelines for mental health of adults in contact with the criminal justice system

The Magistrates’ Association (MA) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the consultation on the draft guideline: Mental Health of Adults in Contact with the Criminal Justice System, issued by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Whilst the MA cannot comment on the clinical interventions/assessments or NICE compliant studies we would like to suggest some insertions which provide additional relevant information on the existing judicial framework and this vulnerable group of service users. See the MA response here.
