2(A). Mental Disability Advocacy Center (MDAC)


Mental Disability Advocacy Center (MDAC) is an international human rights organisation which uses the law to securee quality, inclusion and justice for people with mental disabilities worldwide.

Our vision is a world of equality – where emotional, mental and learning differences are valued equally; where the inherent autonomy and dignity of each person is fully respected; and where human rights are realised for all persons without discrimination of any form.

In the 2014-2020 period, MDAC is focusing on some of the most extensive human rights issues affecting people with mental disabilities globally through three international campaigns.

1. Schools for All – advancing inclusive education for all children with mental disabilities, and challenging segregated education.
2. I’m a Person – pushing for supported decision-making for all persons with mental disabilities and the abolition of systems of guardianship.
3. My Home, My Choice – promoting independent living and community-based services and challenging abuse in institutions
