Treatment orders leave carers anxious

Supervised community treatment, to be introduced under the new Mental Health Act 2007, is intended to help revolving door patients stay out of hospital by requiring them to accept treatment in the community. This article highlights fears that this may increase the burden on carers.  Carers will not be involved in the decision behind giving a treatment order and may not understand what support is available to them.
