The Mental Health Rights Film Festival is a film festival and international short film competition, which values and promotes cinematographic works that address mental health issues. The aim is to sensitize civil society to the rights of people with mental disorders and to combat the stigma they are associated with.
The event also aims to contribute to the debate on the protection of the rights of people with mental illnesses, at a time when important changes in this field are being discussed at the Council of Europe level and a review of the mental health law in Portugal is underway.
