Mental Health Law Reform0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:42 pm

As you are probably already well aware, there are currently laws within the United Kingdom that state if you have certain mental health problems, you cannot be a director of a company, become a MP or serve as a juror. These restrictions were implemented to ensure that the mental state of a person does not effect a business, the government or the enforcement of the law.

It was, however, announced today that these laws were soon to change. The laws that state that anyone detained for over 6 months under the mental health act cannot become a MP, but this law is going to be axed. This was confirmed after the law was called ‘discriminatory’ in the house of commons.

I personally think that people should not be discriminated against, but I am unsure to how the law change will effect society. In my opinion, people should not be allowed to serve in positions of responsibility if they clearly do not have the capacity to do so. I can understand if the person has made a amazing recovery and is now fine, but it is very rare that this happens. On the other hand, people should not be stuck with the label of ‘mentally ill‘ if they are now fully recovered. The two strong parts of this argument make it a very emotional topic indeed.

What do you think?
