Co-produced with advocacy groups this guide shows how the rights and duties in the Human Rights Act can help strengthen support for people with mental health problems. It uses handy tables, flowcharts, case studies, and worked through examples.

Widely praised by individuals and practitioners, the Care Quality Commission, in its Mental Health Act (2012/13) report said:

"We welcome the publication of the British Institute of Human Rights guide to mental health advocacy and human rights. This is designed to help both patients and advocates to understand and apply human rights in an advocacy context. We recommend advocacy services and detaining authorities circulate it widely."
