Chapter Six examines the main treatment orders currently available to the courts. It addresses the use of the Mental Health Treatment Requirement (MHTR) and its usefulness in helping offenders who aren't dealt with through the Mental Health Act. The author examines the benefits and problems between statutory, voluntary and community agencies and alternative sentencing options such as Suspended sentences and Community orders. Managing risk and promoting rehabilitation is difficult, with this chapter investigating how the two can be reconciled.
