The Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland (MWCS) and the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) have published a report on the progress towards meeting Commitment 5 of the Mental Health Strategy for Scotland (2012-2015).

Human_Rights_report_imageCommitment 5 of the Strategy states:

We will work with the Scottish Human Rights Commission and the Mental Welfare Commission to develop and increase the focus on rights as a key component of mental health care in Scotland.

The report seeks to understand and share insights on how mental health and social care services and agencies with a national remit are working towards a common vision to meet the human rights of service users and carers.
