What are the workshops about?

  • The workshops are about human rights when accessing Children and Young People's Mental Health Inpatient Services.

  • Have opportunities for group discussion.

Who are the workshops for?

  • For children and young people accessing Children and Young People’s Mental Health Inpatient Services and their loved ones, carers or supporters.

How will the workshop be delivered?

  • Each workshop will be delivered online via Zoom. It will be an interactive session with opportunities for questions and discussions.
  • Each session will be delivered by a member of BIHR staff and a Lived Experience Expert Consultant.

How many people can attend each workshop?

  • Each workshop will have 30 available places.

How many workshops will there be?

  • We plan to run 5 open access human rights workshops but may deliver additional workshops if there is enough interest.
  • Each workshop will have the same content so you only need to come to one.

What dates are the workshops on?

  • The first workshop will be on Tuesday 2nd November at 10:30am.
  • There will be more information about other dates soon. Please email [email protected] if you would like to be informed about future dates.

How do I register to attend a workshop?

What else do I need to know?

  • In the workshops we will be discussing real life situations that may potentially be traumatic. Real life stories are a really useful way to learn about human rights but this can sometimes be upsetting.
  • We can not give legal advice or casework in the workshops.
