The Mental Health Act (MHA) Code of Practice is not being used as it was intended due to a lack of awareness and understanding of the statutory guidance amongst providers and staff.

report published by CQC found variation in providers’ understanding of the MHA Code of Practice and how it should be applied. This was the result of a review of how well the guidance has been implemented and used across mental health services since it was last updated in 2015.
