Dignity has been described as “the inherent and inalienable worth of all human beings irrespective of social status such as race, gender, physical or mental state” (Funk, Drew, & Baudel, 2015). In a world that often marginalizes individuals with mental illness, isolates them from friends and family, and strips away hope, mental health systems and interventions that promote dignity and social connections are essential. I feel honored to be a part of the World Dignity Project’s mission to provide quality mental health care for all.
