"Despite progress in some countries, people with mental health conditions often experience severe human rights violations, discrimination, and stigma.


Mental health is a basic human right for all people.


Everyone, whoever and wherever they are, has a deserving and inherent right to the highest attainable standard of mental health.


This includes:

the right to available, accessible, acceptable and good quality care; and

the right to liberty, independence and inclusion in the community.


Having a mental health condition should never be a reason to deprive a person of their human rights or to exclude them from decisions about their own health."


World Health Organization (WHO)
