BIHR, Wish and NSUN invite you to attend a learning event on 20th January about human rights and mental health. Wish and NSUN have partnered with BIHR (the British Institute of Human Rights) on a project looking 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
The event is free to attend but places are limited and only open to those working on mental health or mental capacity for a third sector organisation.
