Mental Health Rights Manual

Consumers, carers and mental health workers struggling to understand their rights within the NSW mental health system have a new resource to guide them through. The fourth edition of the Mental Health Rights Manual has been published this week by the Mental Health Coordinating Council

Written in plain English, the Manual is an invaluable readily accessible resource, bringing together vital information crucial to anyone having to navigate the mental health system, enabling them to become acquainted with their rights, the legal and service system, and access support and guidance.

A key objective of this Manual is to provide a resource which covers many of the areas which may at some time or other be of concern to people with mental health conditions, their carers and families, and the workforce that supports them that they can access in one place.
