The guide is an instrument of consultation on citizenship and rights in the field of mental health. Based on the reality of our territory, it seeks to facilitate the exercise of our rights. The document is aimed at all people involved in the recovery processes and the general public, since mental health implies us in an everyday way.
It is structured around the articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and includes relevant testimonies of affected persons, professionals and family members that reflect the status of the different rights in our territory. In addition, it indicates ways to exercise each one of the rights in question and incorporates a section of resources with associations of interest and useful documents.
