CNMF MENTAL HEALTH LEGISLATION PROJECT

The CNMF has been funded by the Commonwealth Foundation to work with the Seychelles and Botswana Governments in a review of their mental health legislation. The project is a follow on from the 2013 research on mental health legislation across the Commonwealth by Dr Soumitra Pathare from the Indian Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy. A website has been established for the project to keep members and any other interested persons informed of the progress of the project. A copy of the research report is available below.
