Pre-course reading - Section 12(2) Induction

Please see below the recommended pre-course reading for the course. We will refer to these resources throughout the course, so familiarity with their content will support/facilitate learning. The Mental Health Act Code of Practice and Reference Guide are useful resources for reference in your practice.


We also have the following video-based module on Trainees Online (TrOn) covering giving evidence at mental health tribunals which you may find useful, in addition to a recent CPD Online (CPDO) podcast covering the response of mental health tribunals to the COVID-19 emergency:
