Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster
Admitting someone to hospital for treatment, or keeping them there, if there are concerns about their mental health - even if they do not agree that they should be in hospital. It refers to various sections of the Mental Health Act that explain how and why a person can be kept in hospital. You have the right to appeal, and to get help from an independent mental health advocate.
