Rights and Mental Health Legislation
There is currently an Independent Review of the Mental Health Act underway.
An Opportunity to Influence
There is currently an Independent Review of the Mental Health Act underway. We want to influence this review, because this review is an opportunity to ensure the law itself is not discriminatory, that people are empowered to know their rights and that they receive the treatment they need when they need it.
To do this we are:
- Working with one of our Youth Champions to sit on the Communications and Engagement advisory groups.
- Engaging with our volunteers and people with lived experience to ensure their concerns are being raised.
- Creating research to inform the review.
- Working with key partners to ensure that the review upholds rights and includes the voices of lived experience.
