We fight for mental health and well-being for all with equality of treatment and dignity in patient experience as a basic human right.
Where It All Began
The International Conference, Mental Health for All – Connecting People and Sharing Experience held in Lille, France in 2015 provided an opportunity for the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), its French Partners, friends and allies to work with a global branding organization, ModelPeople and the Edo Agency to explore the notion of dignity in mental health. ModelPeople has co-ordinated research that has informed the inspiration for the design for the World Dignity Project working with people who have experienced mental health difficulties, their relatives, carers and friends living in Australia, Brazil, Chile, France, India, Israel, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, Singapore, Slovenia, Uganda, United Kingdom and the United States of America. We are now inviting you to join us and to be part of the World Dignity Project. The World Dignity Project aims to identify one million individuals, organizations, countries and states to become Foundation Members by adopting the World Dignity Project Symbol so that we can form a global movement to address the stigma related to mental health and launch it to the general public worldwide in 2016. Symptoms are not a barrier to recovery, but attitude is.
