The United Nations is not infallible. It has to be asked whether the UN Report of the Special Rapporteur (United Nations Human Rights Council, 2017), critically examined by Dharmawardene and Menkes (this issue), deserves our profession’s attention.

Mental health services are coercive in ways that violate principles of human rights.
