Update about the Mental Health Act Review and support urgently wanted
Over the last few months, NSUN has continued campaigning with other user-led groups for major changes in the Mental Health Act Review recommendations, to bring them in line with full human rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
We now have a one-page campaign sheet which can be used to encourage still more individuals and organisations to sign up to our campaign. We have also produced a model letter to send to local MP candidates during the general election period. This is a crucial time, both because of the general electionand the current lack of support in political manifestos for our campaign and because we have confirmation that, despite everything which has been going on politically, a Green/White Paper based on the Review recommendations is still expected inDecember, or otherwise in the early New Year.
