CJVSF, along with Voluntary Health Scotland and Support in Mind Scotland, jointly delivered the third seminar in the ‘Unequal Lives, Unjust Deaths’ series of events. This seminar, which took place on 21 August 2014, considered health inequalities and vulnerable adults.
The event focused on the relationship between social exclusion – through custodial sentences, poverty or homelessness – and poor mental health, long term conditions, disability and shorter life expectancy. It also looked at the third sector contribution to preventing, reducing and undoing these health inequalities.
