New tool to stop neglect and abuse of people with mental health conditions

15 June saw the launch of a new tool for countries to assess the quality of care provided to people with mental health conditions and put a stop to any violations of their rights. WHO created the QualityRights Tool Kit to help all countries introduce and implement standards for mental health and social care facilities. The tool kit provides specific guidance on how to assess whether services meet those standards, report findings, and make appropriate recommendations to improve care at the health facility and national levels.
