Nurses in any speciality may encounter patients suffering from mental disorder and therefore need to have an understanding of the legal principles involved.

Mental Health Law for Nurses provides an introduction and practical guide to the law and directives embodied in these. Nurses specialising in the care of the mentally ill or handicapped will find this a book for easy reference and directly relevant to their everyday practice.;This book provides coverage for community care homes and institutional settings. It includes questions and exercises to encourage debate and discussion. A comprehensive bibliography enables practitioners to follow-up areas of interest.
