Next FEEL meeting 18 July

W​e are busy planning the next FEEL event to take place on 23 September, 7 pm at Kingsley Hall, Powis Road, E3 3HJ.  The topic will be Knowing Our Rights.  We have asked ​for a speaker from the East London Foundation Trust Mental Health Law Team, a representative from the National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers,  an expert in advocacy and  Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) speaker.  

We have discovered some really useful resources about mental health rights -  Mental Health Act Code of Practice and Mental Health Big Book of Benefits.  We think more people ought to know about these books and how to use them to secure our rights.  There will be copies of these books at the meeting, along with some ideas how you can get access to them (they are expensive!).
There will be the usual wonderful music from the Mudlarks and refreshments, of course.
Please come along to the next FEEL meeting on Monday 18 July to help us finalise these plans.  We want to know about other resources and suggestions for Knowing Our Rights.  See you at LARC.
