The Disability Research Initiative and the Melbourne Social Equity Institute will host an evening seminar on mental health, disability and human rights in the Asia-Pacific.

There will be presentations from Associate Professor Harry Minas and Bhargavi Davar on key human rights challenges in the region. A panel discussion will follow with leaders in the field, including policymakers and advocates from India, Indonesia and Australia.

The aim of the series is to highlight the intersections of disability, mental health and human rights and to promote cross-disability advocacy in Australia and abroad.
