The Mind Our Rights! report was launched on 8 October 2020 at the Human Rights-Based Care Partnership Symposium. Mind Our Rights! was an event in May 2019, organised by CAPS Independent Advocacy, Advocard and the Patients Council at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. People with lived experience of mental health issues and people working in services came together to discuss rights-based care. We focused on the theme of 2019 Mental Health Awareness Week, body image.
