Just because a person may have mental health problems and indeed may be sectioned, does not necessarily mean that it gives them carte blanche to do what they like.
This is revenge porn and is a criminal offence.
There is no reason why the police could not prosecute this person and that is no reason why whoever does the victim could not take the person to court for an injunction to compel them to take the images down into compel them not to do it again.
The culprit may potentially have a defence to a criminal prosecution if they did not know the nature and quality of their actions in doing this.
However, because of the nature of what they have done, I’m sorry to say that I think that defence would fail. That is because of the nature of what happened in the nature of what they sent, they clearly knew what they were sending otherwise they wouldn’t have sent them.
They would not have a defence to a civil claim.
Actually sending nude photographs is not necessarily an offence unless it was intended to cause distress.
