Professor the Honourable Kevin Bell AM QC is the Executive Director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law, Commissioner for the Yoo-rrook Justice Commission, and Co-Chair of the Steering Committee of the National Mental Health Commission National Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Strategy. Among his many accomplishments, as Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria and President of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Professor Bell has presided over some of Victoria’s most important human rights judgements, including Patrick’s Case and the 2017 PBU & NJE case on electroconvulsive treatment.

Today we spoke about law, the role of judges in directly or indirectly exercising oversight of systems and how taking a human rights based approach can lead to the best experiences of and outcomes from, the courts.

[A note on language: there are diverse ways to understand and describe distress. Different terms are used in this podcast. We discuss in the episode, the need to acknowledge labelling and power in how terms like mental illness and mental health are used]
