Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks. I should however make it clear that I have no problem translating the concept. My query is rather whether there is an accepted English translation of the legislation referred to. I couldn't find one.

Compulsory Mental Care Act / Forensic Mental Care Act


Explanation:
This is way outside my field of expertise but the question is interesting.
"Compulsory mental care is regulated by two laws in Sweden - one for mentally disturbed individuals in general and another for those who have commited crimes while suffering from one or more serious mental disorders. The law concerning the latter category is called the Forensic Mental Care Act." From Betänkande från Nationell Psykiatrisamordning, www.sou.gov.se/psykiatri/z_PDF/SOU 2006_91.pdf

"The Compulsory Mental Care Act allows seriously mentally ill people to be taken into care against their wishes." From the website Sveriges Domstolar, http://www.domstol.se/templates/DV_InfoPage____2362.aspx

See if this helps.../Catherine
