Research project on human rights in mental health care
Have you had experiences with the mental health system and hospitalization? Share your voice!
A group of researchers and community collaborators are interested in learning more about people’s experiences related to mental health, hospitalization and the Mental Health Act, such as, involuntary detainment & treatment, use of restraints or seclusion.
They would also like to hear about stigmatizing and discriminatory practices in mental health based on experiences of colonization, racism, sexism, heterosexism, transphobia, ageism, poverty and homelessness. These conversations will be led by a Peer Researcher who shares these experiences.
Participants must be 18 or older. Participants receive $50 and snacks and refreshments.
This research supports an international research project (Canada, Kenya, and Australia) that is aiming to develop mental health services that enhance human rights and equity.
Participants attending the in-person session are asked to please wear a mask.
