Description of consultancy: Facilitation of the four days Training of Trainers training on WHO QualityRights in Nepal
Background and rationale
CBM Global is an international development organisation committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities by supporting government service systems, promoting disability inclusion, and reinforcing the rights in light of UNCRPD, country laws, and policies. People with psychosocial disabilities are one of under representative disability groups, have historically, and continue to be subject to exclusion, deprivation, and often significant human rights abuses. They have not been considered enough to have a voice in matters that affect them, and the services and support they deserve are often far worse in quality, including health and recovery approaches.
The World Health Organization (WHO)’s QualityRights (QR) initiative has developed a comprehensive package to build capacity among mental health practitioners, people with psychosocial, intellectual and cognitive disabilities, people using mental health services, families, care partners and other supporters, nongovernmental organisations, organisations of persons with disabilities and others on how to implement a human rights and recovery approach in the area of mental health in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other international human rights standards. The training on the Quality Rights comprehensive package helps to change mindsets and practices sustainably and empower all stakeholders to promote rights and recovery to improve the lives of people with psychosocial, intellectual, or cognitive disabilities everywhere. CBM Global has long-standing partnered with the WHO to develop the QualityRights initiative through technical and financial support. The organization is mandated to roll out the QR training in Nepal in collaboration with respective mental health of focal unit, Department of Health Service, Minister of Health and Population and WHO Nepal.
CBM Global Nepal has taken the initiative organising four days of training of trainers (ToT) on Quality Rights for the relevant professionals such as Project Partner staff, Academia, members of the Organization of People with Disabilities (OPD), members of National Human Rights Commission, policy makers of Government Health System, Mental Health professionals, Disability Advocates, etc. involved either in services and or movements linked to psychosocial disability in Nepal.
The training will help to develop a pool of professionals, who can later on, either provide training to the service providers and project staff on QualityRights in Nepal, may contribute to national or local level policy implementation, raise awareness among cross OPDs on the rights of the people with psychosocial disabilities involved in the project areas and beyond, and reinforce person centred human rights-based recovery approach throughout the health and other Government systems.
