Your Rights
 

Since centuries, people with mental disabilities are seen as the objects of welfare, charity or lifelong patients under psychiatric medication. But now many countries have supported the mental health laws and Human rights and are recognizing people with mental disabilities as having self advocacy.

The National mental health laws, Human rights and the mental health policies can now ensure people with mental disabilities to raise their voices and ask for justice legally.

The United Nations Human Rights System encompasses the different legally binding documents –

  1. Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)
  2. International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)
  3. International Covenant on Civil & Political Rights (ICCPR)
  4. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
  5. Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment
  6. Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women
  7. Convention on the Rights of the Child
  8. Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination

The most recent UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD), developed around 2008 has covered multiple aspects about the rights of people with all disabilities including mental disabilities.

To understand the application of these rights one must consult the Mental health law and Human rights consultant.
