What it means and the Mental Capacity Act (MCA)

 

If you have mental capacity, it means that you are able to make your own decisions. This means you are able to understand and think through information and make a choice based on that information. We all have problems making decisions from time to time.

 

The MCA is there to support people to make their own decisions, provide a clear simple test to assess their capacity and to help them to have legal ways to plan for the future. It also legally sets out what needs to be considered when decisions need to be made for people who are unable to make them for themselves.
