Representing Clients Impacted by Coercive Mental Health and Substance Use Health Laws

Every day in BC people experience a loss of liberty or other fundamental rights through civil mental health and substance use health laws. But barriers to accessing legal representation have contributed to a significant access to justice crisis. Join Health Justice for the launch of a Legal Research and Resource Guide, generated to assist lawyers and advocates representing people facing detention and coercive mental health and substance use health care in BC.

This 1hr webinar will provide an overview of substantive law and procedures in some of the most relevant contexts, including the Health Care (Consent) and Care Facility (Admission) Act, the Mental Health Act, the Adult Guardianship Act, the Human Rights Code, and seeking remedies for detention.

Participants in this webinar may claim up to 1hr CPD with LSBC.
