Chapter 6 discusses the interpretation of data. It presents questions to consider whilst interpretation data, such as if the respondent has a substantial mental disorder, if the substantial disorder causes gross impairment, if the respondent poses a risk, if the risk is causally related to the mental disorder, and what the least restrictive available setting for treatment is. Some examples of particularly complex cases are also presented.
