UPCOMING: Join us on 7/1/2018 in our free workshop on patients’ rights

 

You’re invited!

 

With the objective to humanize mental healthcare, insyaAllah next year we will be holding a workshop on World Health Organization’s (WHO) Quality Rights module. This will be a continuation from our last Quality Rights workshop, which you can read more here. What is Quality Rights, you might ask? The paragraph below from WHO’s website explains it in a nutshell:

 

“WHO QualityRights aims to improve the quality and human rights conditions in inpatient and outpatient mental health and social care facilities and empower organizations to advocate for the rights of people with mental and psychosocial disabilities. The care available in mental health facilities around the world is not only of poor quality but in many instances actually hinders recovery. It is common for people to be locked away in small, prison-like cells with no human contact or to be chained to their beds, unable to move. Violations are not restricted to inpatient and residential facilities however; many people seeking care from outpatient and community care services are disempowered and also experience extensive restrictions to their basic human rights.”

 

Coming back to the workshop, our esteemed panels are:

Dr. Abdul Kadir Abu Bakar.
Director of Permai Hospital, Johor Bahru; Psychiatrist

 

Ustaz Mohd. Noor Deros.
