This thesis examines the complex legal framework for admission to hospital and treatment for mental disorder of adolescents. It identifies areas of uncertainty and makes recommendations on how these might be addressed. It does so by mapping the various legal routes for adolescent psychiatric care, including detention under the Mental Health Act 1983, and examining these through a 'human rights lens' which reflects international and European human rights standards, including the European Convention on Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
