Unusual behaviour in a middle-aged woman


Dr Richard Seamark,
Consultant Psychiatrist.


This case discusses the diagnosis and management of a patient who presents with a recent change in her normal behaviour. The case considers the Mental Health Act and the issue of capacity. This is a difficult area for graduating students and experienced practitioners alike. However, the graduating student should be aware of the need to establish capacity and how to go about doing so in accordance with local laws.
