AAFDA helps families with Mental Health Reviews in a similar way to how it helps families with Domestic Homicide Reviews. Health Trusts may also conduct internal reviews. We may help families even if the mental health review is not about a domestic mental health homicide.
We are seeing the merging of Mental Health and Domestic Homicide Reviews in many instances and this can be quite complex for families. There may be two different types of statutory guidance governing the reviews and two different authorities (Health Trust and the Community Safer Partnership) jointly commissioning the review.
