ChildandYouthMentalHealthPSPModule AppendixLegislationBC Infant Act: BC’s Infants Act says that children under 19 have the right to consent to their ownhealth care which includes mental health. Parents are almost always informed, but ultimately a childdoes not need parental consent to seek and receive help if the child is mature enough to understandthe risks and consequences of the treatment. The law considers them capable if they understand theneed for a medical treatment, what the treatment involves, the benefits and risks of getting thetreatment, and the benefits and risks of not getting the treatment. If the doctor or health careprovider explains these things and decides that the child understands them, they can treat the childwithout permission from the parents or guardians. The child might have to sign a consent form.Resources - Lifespan of Mental Illnesses1919of
