The Organisation

The MHC is an independent statutory body established in April 2002 under the provisions of the Mental Health Acts 2001-2018 (“the 2001 Act”). The principal functions of the MHC, as specified in the 2001 Act, are to promote, encourage and foster the establishment and maintenance of high standards and good practices in the delivery of mental health services and to take all reasonable steps to protect the interests of persons detained in approved centres. The MHC is also empowered to undertake such activities, as it deems appropriate to foster and promote these standards and practices.

The Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015 (“2015 Act”) provides for the establishment of the Decision Support Service (“DSS”) within the Mental Health Commission (“MHC”) as part of a new legal framework that reforms the law in relation to the treatment of people who require or who may shortly require assistance exercising their decision-making capacity. The DSS will be responsible for a number of key new functions, including the registration of new decision support arrangements and the supervision of persons acting as decision supporters.
