If health professionals think that a person with dementia is behaving in a way that places their health at risk or is a danger to themselves or others, they can be detained in hospital under section 2 of the Mental Health Act so that they can be assessed.

As the term sectioning often has negative connotations in this podcast we will be referring to the process of placing someone under a section of the Mental Health act.
