Join us for a training on the six fundamental rights and mental health laws. This training is for individuals and advocates who are interested in learning about the rights an individual has when facing voluntary or involuntary commitment and hospitalization for a psychiatric disability. This will be followed by a Community Feedback Forum.

We are looking for your input on the issues you face as a person or family member of a person with lived experiences of a mental health diagnosis.

This training is free, but you must register to attend
