Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
A Melbourne Social Equity Institute research team is examining ways of avoiding coercive practices to ensure people experiencing mental health crises are treated with dignity and respect. Most recently, the team undertook a systematic review of global practices that aim to reduce, prevent and end coercive practices in mental health settings.
The review was commissioned by the United Nations Office at Geneva. It will inform a report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, whose role is to promote the human rights of persons with disabilities worldwide.
