QualityRights materials for training, guidance and






As part of the QualityRights Initiative, WHO has developed a
comprehensive package of training and guidance materials. The materials can be
used to build capacity among mental health practitioners, people with
psychosocial, intellectual and cognitive disabilities, people using mental
health services, families, care partners and other supporters, nongovernmental organizations,
organizations of persons with disabilities and others on how to implement a
human rights and recovery approach in the area of mental health in line with
the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other
international human rights standards.

The ultimate goal of WHO’s QualityRights is to change
mindsets and practices in a sustainable way and empower all stakeholders to
promote rights and recovery in order to improve the lives of people with
psychosocial, intellectual or cognitive disabilities everywhere.
