Call For Contributions: Council of Europe Examples of practices in mental health care

On 26 November 2019, the Council of Europe’s Committee on Bioethics (DH-BIO) organised a round table in Brussels on the scope and the methodology to be adopted in a study on “Good practices in mental health care – how to promote voluntary measures”.
The participants, representing persons with lived experience, medical and health care professionals, and social workers, expressed their support for this project and exchanged with the Rapporteur and the Secretariat of the DH-BIO on the approach to be adopted.
The conclusions reached at this event were fed in the work undertaken within the Committee’s Strategic Action Plan on Human Rights and Technologies in Biomedicine (2020-2025)  as regards the development of a Compendium of good practices to promote voluntary measures in mental health care.
As part of this exercise, examples of practices contributing to preventing recourse to involuntary measures in mental health care were collected over the period of July -December 2020 with a view to demonstrate what can be achieved in this area, even on a small scale and with limited means. However, to further enrich the quantity and quality of the practices collected, the deadline for collection of resources is extended to May 31st 2021.
We would therefore like to ask for your collaboration and kindly invite you to participate in this call for contribution of examples of relevant practices in the field of mental health care.
You will find the concept note outlining the scope and purpose of this collection together with the form to be used when submitting examples (as an addendum) on the Council of Europe's dedicated website.
