MHE at the DESC project closing conference

MHE attended the DESC (disability, equality, security, careers) project closing conference hosted by the EASPD on the implementation of employment strategies to secure career paths for people with disabilities. MHE Director Maria Nyman participated in a panel where she recalled the importance of mental health in the workplace for everyone and highlighted the importance for persons with disabilities including psychosocial disabilities to know about their rights in line with article 27 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).

MHE put forward the empowerment of persons with disabilities which goes hand in hand with adequate human-rights based training of service providers; the need for an inclusive employment market which must take a holistic approach, starting with inclusive education, training of teachers, mental health awareness at schools for all pupils; the need to fight stigma and raise disability and mental health awareness; and the supported employment for persons with psychosocial disabilities which should be based on Place and Train models.
