Proposed IMH Centre for Mental Health and Human Rights

Plans are underway to establish a Centre for Mental Health and Human Rights based at the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham

The focus of the centre will be both national and international and we are establishing close links with the World Health Organisation. To that end, Martin Orrell, Mike Slade and Peter Bartlett had an encouraging and productive meeting with the WHO in the spring.

The centre would cover human rights issues in relation to mental health, mental capacity and intellectual disability. The work of the new Centre would be of especial relevance if a new and revised UK Mental Health Act is forthcoming.


At this stage we keen to find out who may be interested in being involved in such a Centre, what work is already being (or has already been) done involving international or national human rights and mental health and what directions colleagues might be interested in exploring in those areas.

If you are interested in being involved in the proposed Centre please send the following details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  it would be helpful to have your response by 1 July 2017.
