Appeal against a Mental Health Tribunal decision

The Mental Health Tribunal for Scotland makes decisions about compulsory care and treatment for patients with a mental disorder.

The outcomes of Tribunal hearings are published every month on the Tribunal website.

If you do not agree with a Mental Health Tribunal decision, you have the right to appeal to the Sheriff Principal or the Court of Session.

Visit the Mental Health Tribunal for Scotland website for more information on how to appeal.
