Every person who comes into contact with a health care service deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Sadly this is not the case for many people, and especially for many people with mental illness. If we are going to improve the health care provided to people with mental illness, then we need to work together to effect change. The voice of people with mental illness, and their family members and carers, must be heard. The World Dignity Project supports each of us to work together to consider how we treat other people, the impact this has on health care, and how we can all do better.
