April 1, 2020
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
*** Important Changes ***
The Health Justice Australia session will now be delivered via Zoom Video Conferencing on Wednesday 1 April.
New research by Health Justice Australia shows how mental illness, domestic and family violence, and poverty are compounding the vulnerability to poor health of people currently in the health system.
Joining the Dots — Briefing on the 2018 Census of the Health Justice Landscape is the latest report from Health Justice Australia. It outlines how and where health and legal services are working together, the clients and issues they are seeing and the help they are providing.
In partnership with the Tasmanian Council of Social Service (TasCOSS), Health Justice Australia will be hosting an online briefing for Tasmanian health and social services on Wednesday 1 April 2020. The briefing will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
Health justice partnerships are collaborations between legal and health services that embed legal help into healthcare settings, responding to legal and social problems that make or keep people unwell.
The sessions will discuss how and where health and legal services are working together elsewhere in Australia, and what progress has been made in Tasmania. It will explore the clients and issues they are seeing and the help they are providing. The sessions are particularly beneficial if you:
- work in a health or legal service and might be interested in developing a partnership;
- or your staff deliver in-home support and would like information on how to identify and make referrals on legal issues potentially affecting your client.
