Online event on Wednesday 9th March, 09.30 – 16.30 – UK Mental Health Act reform: Can it deliver racial justice and ensure the rights and wellbeing of people with mental health problems?

All day online event sponsored by Garden Court barristers chambers with speakers including Marcia Rigg,  Colin King and Dorothy Gould.

“This conference has been organised in the wake of reform of the Mental Health Act (MHA) 1983 and seeks to lead this discussion through engaging professionals and those who are experts by experience. Changes need to comply with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Stakeholders have responded to the Government’s White Paper and we understand a draft bill will be available for the new parliament….

This conference is designed to encourage critical thinking about Mental Health Act reform by developing our best ideas from practice and lived experience. It will include plenary sessions and workshops.”
