WHO Materials, Tools and Implementation Portal
Updated: Sep 3
We would like to share the key WHO materials, tools and a country implementation portal as part of the WHO QualityRights programme.
These aim to transform mental health and social care systems and services towards a person-centered, recovery-oriented and human rights-based approach in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – this is the vision called for by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization – in the Foreword to the QualityRights materials.
QualityRights materials and tools - https://www.who.int/publications-detail/who-qualityrights-guidance-and-training-tools
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.
