dc.descriptionLegislation in mental health will never be perfect, and must always be seen as dynamic. A good mental health law paradoxically may need to be changed quite rapidly, and be replaced by a better mental health law. The European Convention on Human Rights has an imponant application to mental health legislation, but only to a limited extent There are in fact only two, or possibly three specified fields in which the European Convention helps us in mental health legislation. Firstly, there is the protection that is offered against all forms of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment The protection against inhuman or degrading treatment has been reinforced by the New European Convention providing for preventative visits to all places of detention, including psychiatric hospitals.en_GB
