10% of the 180,000 people treated in mental hospitals every year have no choice in the matter. An example is Peter, locked up for 30 years because of petty theft and finally released when it became possible for him to get expert legal aid under the 1983 Mental Health Act.
Part of a series explaining aspects of the law as it was in 1984 in popular terms, with examples so that people could be aware of their rights and know what to do in certain situations. Very useful to compare with the same situations today.
