This leaflet contains guidance on travelling abroad and mental health, and information about how the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is able to assist British nationals with mental health needs abroad. It details the type of assistance you may find in the country you are visiting or living in. The leaflet also explains some of the differences between English law and practice and that of other countries."
