Cross-sector collaboration: Mental Health, Mental Capacity and Human Rights, Brighton Thursday 14 June, 1:30pm-4.30pm

If you work on mental health or mental capacity, BIHR (British Institute of Human Rights) invite you to join us at this free learning event on Thursday 14 June in Brighton. This event is designed to help you think about how you can use human rights in your work and to work collaboratively to improve services locally.

The session will cover:

  • Human rights and mental health/capacity: what you need to know
  • Using human rights across the sectors: real life examples
  • Working collaboratively: using human rights to improve services

You will also receive a copy of BIHR’s new series of booklets co-developed with advocacy/support groups to empower people who use services about their human rights. The booklets include information, tips and tools about how individuals, and their advocates, can use human rights to negotiate with services to try and improve care and treatment.

This event is part of the final series of events sharing the learning from a three year project, Care and Support: A Human Rights Approach to Advocacy, funded by the Department of Health. This project seeks to embed human rights across the work of advocacy and support organisations.
