The Mental Welfare Commission published supported decision-making guidance this month. This guidance, which is very much influenced by Article 12 CRPD and developing Article 8 ECHR jurisprudence, points out that the principles underpinning the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000, Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 and Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 all seek to ensure respect for the exercise of a person’s capacity and autonomy even where they have some impairment or disability. It identifies the types of support available, in the legislation and elsewhere, to ensure that when persons do have decision-making difficulties any decisions made by or about them genuinely reflect their choices.
