Conversion therapy survivors can seek apologies and compensation under New Zealand scheme

08/21/2022 | Pink News

The country’s Human Rights Commission launched a free and confidential dispute resolution service for those subjected to the dangerous and discredited practice on Thursday (18 August). The government-funded Conversion Practices Response Service will allow survivors to easily be connected to support services as well as the police. If front-line staff can’t satisfy a complaint, cases will be passed to the Human Rights Review Tribunal for mediation. There, the conversion therapy provider may be forced to apologise to the victim, commit to never practising again, attend educational seminars or compensate the victim financially.
