Health systems approaches to mental health

In this video, Jasmine Kalha, QualityRights Gujarat, discusses the benefits of a rights-based approach to mental health, the QualityRights framework in the context of health systems, the role that peer support should play in QualityRights, and her favourite Article of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

In this video, Soumitra Pathare, QualityRights Gujarat, discusses how mental health professionals need to engage with the political process of policy making, the important roles that Disabled People’s Organisations and civil society can play, and what we gain when we think about mental health as a human rights issue.

These videos were produced from a training module designed by global experts from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, CBM and the Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy, India, and delivered to DFID staff in Spring 2019, as part of the K4D Learning Journey led by the Mental Health Innovation Network  on “Leave No One Behind”: Delivering on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda for Mental Health and Psychosocial Disabilities.
