Persons with Disabilities – Participation and Democracy-  
Slots Available

 Location: Stockholm, Sweden - Host/Co-Host: The Swedish Agency for Participation and Equally Unique (The Swedish Federation Human Rights for Persons with Disabilities
   

 Description:

To participate in the general elections to the Parliament, EU, the municipalities and the county councils is a fundamental Human Right. And it is essential for the Democracy. One third of all people with disabilities experienced accessibility shortcomings in the elections procedures. The accessibility to premises, the configuration of the ballots and the consideration of new technique have to improve. To vote on equal terms is also a matter of abilities to take part of relevant information – accessible information from political parties, the authorities and media. The Swedish Agency for Participation has produced a report on Participation and Democracy and a checklist and there has been frequent consultations and workshops with disability organisations, including Equally Unique. www.mfd.se; www.likaunika.org

When Mental Health Meets Human Rights  
Slots Available
10
 Location: Gothenburg, Sweden: Hosts/Co-Hosts - Region Västra Götaland, SKL/SALAR (Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions) and Mental Health Europe in Brussels
   

 Description:

This match aims at presenting what the international human rights landscape looks like and how the main requirements under the human rights instruments should be interpreted in relation to disability. In the field of mental health, this means that we need to move from medicalised and coercive mental health services, to services that are community-based, person-centered and recovery-oriented. In this session we will exchange views on how such human rights-compliant services can be implemented in practice. As an example of promising practice, the host – including persons with lived experience and peer support workers – will present how Sahlgrenska University Hospital has worked with the implementation of human rights in their activities through training of staff and empowerment of service users leading to equal relationships in the care provision and reduced use of coercion. Participants will discuss how we provide a coherent, scientific, but humane and realistic vision for the future where we offer care rather than coercion, fight for social inclusion, justice and human rights, and where we establish the prerequisites for mental health and wellbeing for all.

The Right to Work in Practice – From stigma and segregation to human rights and integration  
Slots Available
10
 Location: Stockholm, Sweden TBD - Hosts/Co-Hosts: Mission Mental Health, SALAR and Mental Health Europe
   

 Description:

In accordance with international human rights obligations, every person has the right to work on an equal basis. Unfortunately, we are still lagging behind on achieving this right for many people, including persons with mental ill health due to societal barriers, including stigma and prejudices. Ensuring that stigma and discrimination do not limit people with mental ill health from access to the labour market will contribute to making our societies fairer, healthier and more inclusive. Despite this, including persons with disabilities in the employment market was long seen as a social project. This has resulted in segregated models of work that often focused on disability and limitations rather than abilities and competence although providing appropriate employment support to allow for integration in the open labour market is an investment. The aim of this match is to discuss what a human rights-based approach to work and employment looks like for people with mental ill health. What is required to create an inclusive labour market? What support is needed for staff responsible for recruitment processes and human resources? What expectations can be put on front line managers?
