WHO #QualityRights Initiative + Fire Films
Updated: Mar 3, 2020
Fire Films is delighted to be a contributor to the World Health Organisation's QualityRights tool kit with our film Love, Loss and Laughter: Living with Dementia. View the tool kit here: https://www.who.int/publications-detail/who-qualityrights-guidance-and-training-tools
Our film is recommended for watching in the Mental health, disability and human rights core training resource (pictured below), in the section about living independently and being included in the community (p26).
WHO says, "As part of the QualityRights Initiative, WHO has developed a comprehensive package of training and guidance materials. The materials can be used to build capacity among mental health practitioners, people with psychosocial, intellectual and cognitive disabilities, people using mental health services, families, care partners and other supporters, nongovernmental organizations, organizations of persons with disabilities and others on how to implement a human rights and recovery approach in the area of mental health in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other international human rights standards.
The ultimate goal of WHO’s QualityRights is to change mindsets and practices in a sustainable way and empower all stakeholders to promote rights and recovery in order to improve the lives of people with psychosocial, intellectual or cognitive disabilities everywhere."
