I am an adult living in a care home and I am not under a MHA section or DoLS. The staff think I am going to harm myself and are therefore following me when I leave the house without my consent. Is this even legal?

    It is not illegal as you have to prove they are following you and not just out walking.
    Also, if you are in a residence they may have a legal responsibility for you.

    If someone believes a person under their care will harm themselves, they have an ethical obligation to do what they can to prevent it.

    Why wouldn't it be? Clearly, someone thinks you need to be watched. They could have you locked up...
