Our Most Recent Webinar
In February 2021, the Harm Reduction Nurses Association and CPHA presented a webinar on proposed amendments to British Columbia’s Mental Health Act that would allow for involuntary, hospital-based stabilization care of youth following an overdose (Bill 22), and discussed the potential harms and disproportionate impacts Bill 22 could have on youth and ethical issues associated with detention-based treatment. This follow-up panel discussion broadened the discussion to include additional perspectives from youth, families, advocates and academics. The presentations and discussion highlighted a range of perspectives on involuntary stabilization care and shared insights on efforts to support youth who use drugs.
The presenters for this webinar were Kali Sedgemore; President of the Coalition of Peers Dismantling the Drug War (CPDDW), Petra Schulz; Co-Founder of Moms Stop the Harm, Jessica Key; Registered Nurse and Master of Science student at the University of British Columbia, and Laura Johnston; Legal Director of Health Justice.
