Mental Health and Mental Capacity - your human rights

These booklets are aimed at people with mental health or mental capacity issues and will help you to know more about your human rights in health and care services.

We co-produced them with advocates and support workers on our project Care and Support: A Human Rights Approach to Advocacy. The booklets were road-tested, before being re-designed and re-drafted, so that they work better for their intended audiences. 

You can order hard copies here.
