There are two inquiries related to disability and mental health and abuse in care.
We are examining the issues and themes that are particularly relevant to disabled people’s experiences of abuse in care. This investigation will give voice to disabled victims and survivors, and their whānau, about abuse and neglect experienced in care.
We are also examining the care of disabled people in settings such as psychopaedic hospitals and facilities, psychiatric institutions and services, education settings, residential and non-residential settings, community services and rehabilitation services.
