The rights of young people in juvenile justice detention and the management of the use of psychotropic drugs for vulnerable children were among a wide range of topics discussed at the October meeting of the Australian Children’s Commissioners and Guardians (ACCG) in Adelaide this week. The ACCG promotes children’s rights and participation and ensures the best interests of children are considered in public policy and program development across Australia.
