“Our minds, our rights”

World Mental Health Day as per World Health Organisation is an opportunity for people and communities to unite behind the theme ‘Mental health is a universal human right” to improve knowledge, raise awareness and drive actions that promote and protect everyone’s mental health as a universal human right.

With Comprehensive Care, Community Engagement, Advanced Research and Enhanced Training of Undergraduates & Postgraduates.
We make every effort possible from Department of Psychiatry, JSS Medical College & Hospital, JSS Academy of Higher Education & Research, Mysuru.

Mental health is a basic human right for all people. World Health Organisation further spreads the message that “Everyone, whoever and wherever they are, has a right to the highest attainable standard of mental health” This includes the right to be protected from mental health risks, the right to available, accessible, acceptable, and good quality care, and the right to liberty, independence and inclusion in the community.
Good mental health is vital to our overall health and well-being. Yet one in eight people globally are living with mental health conditions, which can impact their physical health, their well-being, how they connect with others, and their livelihoods. Mental health conditions are also affecting an increasing number of adolescents and young people.
Having a mental health condition should never be a reason to deprive a person of their human rights or to exclude them from decisions about their own health. Yet all over the world, people with mental health conditions continue to experience a wide range of human rights violations. Many are excluded from community life and discriminated against, while many more cannot access the mental health care they need or can only access care that violates their human rights.
