MHE publishes position paper on art.12 of the UN CRPD on legal capacity

MHE has put together a position paper on Article 12 of the UN CRPD to provide guidance to stakeholders on what legal capacity means to the lives of persons with psychosocial disabilities and how they can be supported to make decisions for themselves. The paper provides examples of promising practices of supported decision making.. It calls for a Europe where people are supported to make decisions for themselves, where mental health systems do not use coercion and where Member States bring their legislation in line with the UN CRPD.
