The work of Human Rights in Mental Health-FGIP
Mental Healkth in Human Rights-FGIP is involved in work in a variety of areas of mental health with a paryticular focus on human rights issues.
GIP takes a comprehensive approach to its work in each of its program areas. This is because, in the case of mental health afflictions, it is particularly important to address the problems not just of the patients, but their families and broader social environments, as well as the overarching social, political and legal factors that can hinder or facilitate effective care, support and integration.
Our commitment to comprehensive change means that we pay close attention to cross-cutting themes such as increased user and family involvement, community care and attention to human rights.
Our approach also involves working step-by-step to empower and equip those we work with with more progressive methods and tools.
