This leaflet provides information for people who have been remanded to hospital for assessment under section 35 of the Mental health Act. It includes information about why you are in hospital, how long you could be there, what will happen whilst you are there, what happens next and what your rights to appeal are. There is also information about what help you can receive from an independent mental health advocate.
