    Yeah. If the impairment is not substantial and did not lead the person in question to commit the offence, then it's no defence.

    So the test is as follows?
    - Abnormality of mental functioning.
    - Recognised medical condition
    - Substantially impairs D's ability to do 1 of three things.
    - Caused D to kill V.

    Does both factual and legal causation need to be applied?
