Your rights

If you ever see a doctor, counsellor, physio or another health provider, you are a health consumer. And as a health consumer you have rights. This page explains what your rights are, and how to make a complaint if you don't believe you have been treated right. Youth Law also has a page outlining your rights as a health consumer.

You also have human rights that everyone should respect, no matter who they are or what their relationship to you is. Youth Law has information about your rights at home, school, and work, when dealing with the police, relationships and more.
