The World Health Organisation’s MiNDbank database includes international information about mental health, substance abuse, disability and human rights. It covers the various policies, strategies, laws and service standards implemented in these fields by different countries.
“Launched on Human Rights Day, the platform is part of WHO’s QualityRights initiative, aiming to end human rights violations against people with mental health conditions”.
This database makes it possible for readers to select and view policies, laws and strategies by numerous criteria. Accounts of best practice internationally and different initiatives in the field of mental health can be obtained.
