WHO MiNDbank is an online platform which brings together a range of country and international resources, covering mental health, substance abuse, disability, general health, human rights and development. These include policies, strategies, laws, and service standards. MiNDbank aims to facilitate debate, dialogue, advocacy and research in order to promote national reform in these areas, in line with international human rights standards and best practice. MiNDbank has been made possible thanks to the collective efforts of WHO Member States in sharing their national resources, with a view to achieving better health and human rights outcomes for all.
