The aim of this article is to promote a clearer understanding of the Mental Health Commission's development, structure and function. Over recent years, mental health professionals and patients have become more aware of the organisation and its work, although some may remain uncertain about its function and how it fits into the overall care of detained patients. The Commission's fundamental job is to safeguard the well-being and interests of patients detained under the Act. Its remit does not extend to informal patients. Unless otherwise indicated, all statutory references are to the 1983 Mental Health Act.
