Accountability for the rights of people with psychosocial disabilities: an assessment of country reports for the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) has been identified as a milestone in human rights protection, offering people with psychosocial disabilities the opportunity to hold their governments accountable for the realisation of their rights.

To facilitate such accountability, the country reports produced under the CRPD reporting process should adequately reflect these people’s experiences and relevant positive or negative developments in the country. Our study used content analysis to review the extent and quality of reporting related to mental health and psychosocial disabilities in 19 country reports.
