This 1st focus group meeting is in Partnership with the Mental Health Network Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
Hear about the future direction for the mental health act and incapacity legislation and have the chance to think through your views.
We also want to look specifically at people’s thoughts on mental health and legal equality (an issue which was raised at VOX’s last members meetings)
- How can support for people with mental health problems can be strengthened?
- What steps need to be taken to ensure people understand a persons’ will and preference?
- Is it ever okay to act in someone’s best interest? If not, why not/if yes then in what sort of circumstance/s?
Please note we the event is for people who have lived experience of mental health problems, and it is crucial that we create a safe space for each other.
