Mental health advocacy is a unique aspect of legal practice. Lawyers need to think about their duties to their clients, as they do in the adversarial system, but also preserve the therapeutic relationship those clients have with their clinicians. This webinar will take a practical approach in looking at the legal framework in this area and help ensure that you are able to apply this understanding when working with your clients. The presenters will also consider the outcomes from the 2019 government inquiry into Mental Health and what can be taken from that in terms of advocacy and review the updated Ministry of Health Mental Health Act guidelines.
Presenters: Annette Gray and Louise Sziranyi
