Mental Health (Wales) Measure 2010

Section 24 – Provision of information about assessments

43.In order that individuals are able to seek an assessment in the circumstances provided for in section 22, it is important that they are aware of their entitlement should they need to exercise it. Therefore when an individual is discharged from secondary services the LHB or local authority (as the case may be) is under a duty to provide written information about the assessment arrangements made under Part 3 of this Measure. Such a duty also arises in respect of individuals discharged from secondary mental health services before their 18th birthday, where (by virtue of the duration of the relevant discharge period) they will become eligible for assessment after their 18th birthday (subject to the other conditions for eligibility also being met).
