    Explanation
    When a child presents under the age of 16 years, it is important to contact the legal guardian because they have the legal responsibility and authority to make decisions on behalf of the child. Additionally, a child protection notification may need to be made if there are concerns about the child's safety or well-being. This is to ensure that appropriate steps can be taken to protect the child if necessary.

    A young person can be detained under the Mental Health Act if (select all that apply):

    • A.

      They are deemed to have a mental illness

    • B.

      Their parents consent

    • C.

      They have previously been detained

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. They are deemed to have a mental illness
    C. They require treatment to protect themselves or others
    Explanation
    A young person can be detained under the Mental Health Act if they are deemed to have a mental illness and require treatment to protect themselves or others. This means that if a young person is assessed and diagnosed with a mental illness, and it is determined that they need treatment in order to prevent harm to themselves or others, they can be detained under the Mental Health Act. The factors of parental consent and previous detention are not mentioned in the explanation, so they are not applicable in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Following a young person being detained under the Mental Health Act, they must be re-examined by a psychiatrist or authorised medical practitioner 24 hours after the detention to confirm or revoke the order.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    After a young person is detained under the Mental Health Act, it is necessary for them to be re-examined by a psychiatrist or authorized medical practitioner within 24 hours. This examination is crucial to determine whether the detention order should be confirmed or revoked. It ensures that the young person's mental health condition is properly assessed and that their rights are protected. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Once confirmed, a Level 1 detention order under the Mental Health Acts lasts for a maximum of:

    • A.

      14 days

    • B.

      7 days

    • C.

      48 hours

    • D.

      21 days

    Correct Answer
    B. 7 days
    Explanation
    A Level 1 detention order under the Mental Health Acts lasts for a maximum of 7 days. This means that individuals who are detained under this order can be held for up to 7 days before their detention is reviewed. This time period allows for a thorough assessment of the individual's mental health condition and ensures that their rights are protected. After the 7-day period, the detention order may be extended or modified based on the individual's needs and circumstances.
