This new interactive website, made by the British Institute for Human Rights, will support people to know when their human rights may be at risk in mental health and mental capacity services, and how to use the law to resolve these issues in everyday discussions with staff.
There is a launch event on 3rd July which is open to people with mental health and/or capacity issues, their families, carers, support workers and advocates. You will have the opportunity to learn more about how human rights law can help you in your everyday interactions with health and care services, and to use our new online tool and hear about how it has helped people during its development, and how you can make the best use of this new resource.
This event is free to attend, and we have 50 places available at our session, which will be held in Central London on the afternoon of 3rd July. The event is free, but spaces are limited so we ask that you please book your space here: www.bihr.org.uk/Event/human-rights-in-health-care-advocacay-tool-launch
