The SA Office of the Chief Psychiatrist’s Human Rights and Coercion Reduction Committee developed the Human Rights Analysis Tool.

It has been designed to support mental health services to embed human rights into practice by conducting a self-assessment based on the principles of the Human Rights Based Approach and the articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD).

The tool so far has been trialled through analysing the plans for two new services and is subject to continual review and development, so we appreciate your feedback and comments to learn about the opportunities and challenges related to the tool's implementation.
