Hello,

If you have been detained by police due to mental health problems under a 136 and taken to a 'place of safety' (136 suite) to be assessed by mental health professionals, would this be something you had to declare on 'declaration of criminal offences'?

There is no 'crime' involved, and it was pertaining to risk to self, but have read some sources which say a 136 still shows up on a DBS check, so I am confused.

Any advice much appreciated.

Hey I've heard that a standard dbs won't include this information but if it's an enhanced dbs check, it will include any non convction held about you in police records which police considers relevant.
For the bit u have to declare a criminal offence there's nothing you've done, try and do more research or call places to get them to confirm this situation.
Hope this helps

It's not a criminal issue, but it is a significant material fact that should be declared on your occupational health form

^THIS.

If in doubt, declare it - you'd got nothing to feel shady about, anyway.

There is an article on working as a healthcare professional with a mental health diagnosis linked in my signature below which you may find useful. It covers a lot of aspects of disclosure and occupational health issues.

Ultimately it would be advisable to speak to the university regarding this, to see whether they would find it appropriate to disclose. Failure to disclose if it does turn up on your DBS may be viewed quite negatively, and you would be expected to disclose this to the occupational health team anyway so it would be useful to start a discussion about this so the incident can be documented and assessed.

I am not 100% sure, but I do not think Section 136's, Section 2's, Section 4's and Section 5's show up in a DBS check but Section 3's do. They are not criminal convictions but it may be an idea to disclose it anyway and disclose it on your OH form. I was recently detained under a 5.2 and 2, my employer's and OH are fully aware and has not caused any issues whatsoever

Thank you all for the replies.

I have also unfortunately been on a section 3 in the past So worried this will affect my chances of passing occupational health.

It shouldn't do hun. It's not an actual crime. But be honest and open with your uni and you should be fine. It will probably mean you will have to see OH a couple of times to get clearance, but as long as your GP/psych says you are stable you will be fine. Don't worry, you will be fine.
