The family listening day organised by INQUEST took place on Friday 7 November 2014 at the Friends Meeting House, Euston Road, London. The event was designed to help the Equality and Human Rights Commission (the Commission) gather evidence from the families of adults with mental health conditions who had died in detention. In total 15 families attended, and were joined by INQUEST staff and seven panel members from the Commission.
Using its detailed case database, INQUEST identified families whose experience would be relevant to the Inquiry and invited them to participate.
