Mental Health (Wales) Measure 2010

Section 22 – Entitlement to assessment

39.Subsection (1) contains all the conditions which must be met in order for a person to be entitled to an assessment. This includes the requirement being made within the relevant discharge period (see section 23 below).

40.Because a person is only entitled to an assessment if they had previously received secondary mental health services (whether as an adult or a child), subsections (2) and (3) set out what it means for a person to have been discharged from such services. It should be read along with the definition of secondary mental health services in section 49 of the Measure.
