This submission is CRIN's contribution to an OHCHR call for input on the issue of mental health and human rights for an upcoming report in 2017. This submission highlights areas of children’s rights in relation to mental health which are not adequately covered by existing human rights mechanisms. These include issues which have specific age-related dimensions, issues that affect children uniquely because of their developmental status, and those that affect specific groups of children.
Please note that these reports are hosted by CRIN as a resource for Child Rights campaigners, researchers and other interested parties. Unless otherwise stated, they are not the work of CRIN and their inclusion in our database does not necessarily signify endorsement or agreement with their content by CRIN.
