Mental health law reform – the Scottish perspective: in conversation with Professor Jill Stavert and Professor Colin McKay

I am joined, not in the shed (under repair), by Professors Jill Stavert and Colin McKay, both members of the executive team of the Scottish Mental Health Law Review chaired by (Lord) John Scott QC.  The Review reported in September 2022, and our discussion explores why the Review was needed, how it was carried out, and its key recommendations.   We look in particular at what it means to carry out a review seeking to implement positive rights in the mental health and capacity sphere.  Note: the tin cans and string between London and Edinburgh gave up briefly at a couple of moments, for which apologies.

(For those of you wondering about the body parts behind me, they belong to my wife, Pieta, who uses them as part of her work as a movement therapist).
