Thank you to Dr. Sabine Bahrer-Kohler for advance notice on the upcoming publication of her book “Global Mental Health – Prevention and Promotion” with a foreword by UN Special Rapporteur Prof. Puras. At MHWW, we strongly advocate for a human rights-based framework for all mental health work and programs worldwide with a definite movement away from sole reliance on the medical model framework. The experts are the persons experiencing the mental health challenges and they have the right to a range of treatment options and the right to make their own treatment choice. We support the framework outlined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
In a few days my new book is published. Perhaps it will be interesting for your organization, your teams and for example forthcoming meetings& projects et al..
Prof. Puras, MD, UN Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health has written a foreword in my book.
