The British Institute of Human Rights invites you to attend a learning event on September 15th about human rights and mental health. The event is part of a project run by BIHR and partners which looks at how human rights can help ensure people using mental health/mental capacity services are treated with dignity and respect. The project is called ‘Care and Support: A Human Rights Approach to Advocacy’ (funded by the Department of Health).

This learning event will look at:

  • An introduction to human rights: values and context
  • An introduction to the Human Rights Act
  • Mental health and human rights: examples of good practice
  • Using human rights in practice
