Mind Our Rights! Report October 2020

16 October 2020

The Mind Our Rights! event brought 50 service users, survivors and people with lived experience together with mental health professionals from various fields to discuss human rights and key issues relating to mental health, physical health and body image.  

The Scottish Government has stated that Human Rights are fundamental to the principles of mental health care and treatment; it is the role of mental health advocacy to support people with mental health issues to access their Human Rights and advocate for these rights to be met effectively and appropriately by national and local government and the services they fund.  

The Report is available in the following formats:

  • a PDF of the Full Report (25 pages)
  • a PDF of the Summary Report (4 pages): 
  • each of the eleven sections of the Full Report as individual PDF documents
