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. That Report, from the World’s peak body, asserts that psychiatry is dominated by the biomedical model to the neglect of psychosocial treatments. Mental health services are coercive in ways that violate principles of human rights.
