Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy - Pune, India
The Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy (CMHLP) works to protect the rights of persons with psychosocial disabilities in collaboration with diverse stakeholders from service users to policy makers. To reach populations with low literacy levels and vast linguistic diversity, the organisation created short videos, adapting evidence-based resources on mental health and COVID-19 to an Indian context. The videos were translated into six languages and shared via WhatsApp. View the videos on YouTube and follow CMHLP on Twitter and Facebook.
