Associations of family members that work in mental health in  Latin America reached consensus on the promotion of human rights in mental health in the Region. After the meeting, which was held in Buenos Aires, in March, they agreed to promote the integration of mental health care within general hospitals, to adjust mental health budgets to international standards, and to include mental health and human rights in the curricula of university careers in the field of health and law.
