Rights and Mental Health Legislation

There is currently an Independent Review of the Mental Health Act underway as well as ongoing work to promote and protect people's rights.

An Opportunity to Influence

See Me has been working with our volunteers to influence an Independent Review of the Mental Health Act. The 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.

Text: We are all people

To do this we:

  • Worked with one of our Youth Champions to sit on the Communications and Engagement advisory groups.
  • Engaged with our volunteers and people with lived experience to ensure their concerns are being raised.
  • Created research to inform the review.
  • Worked with key partners to ensure that the review upholds rights and includes the voices of lived experience.

Find out more about our consultation responses to the review below. 

As part of our wider influencing work we are also working with our volunteers to create consultation responses to other pieces of work which look to improve people's rights.

Education and Young People's Services

We work to ensure that children and young people's services are inclusive and free from stigma and discrimination.
