Education, rights and recovery

Are people with lived experience of mental health problems denied fair access to education?

This panel looks at the rights that affect people throughout education, from children starting school, all the way up to mature students.

The panel considers what rights children, young people and adults have in relation to education, how mental health stigma and discrimination can hold people back and how protecting rights in education can assist recovery.

The conversation explores how schools and colleges can support students experiencing mental health conditions and will also look at Mindspace Recovery College, which makes learning opportunities about managing mental health available to the Perth community with a strong peer emphasis.
