AD4E is coming to Cornwall! This will be our 21st event and we are delighted to be supported by The Women's Centre, Cornwall.
The voices at AD4E were those of empowered people, powerful in the moment, leaving the perpetrators, and supporters of the perpetrators through their use of diagnostic labels, firmly in the shadows.
Every year, around 46,000 people in England are subject to compulsory treatment under the Mental Health Act. Black people are around four times more likely to be ‘Sectioned’ than White people. Let’s take steps to change the law here in the UK, protecting the rights of people within the mental health care system to exercise informed consent and preserve their autonomy.
