Scrap the Mental Welfare Commission and make it a department of the Human Rights Commission

Why is this idea important?

This is important because bringing the MWC under the umbrella of the HMC would mean protecting human rights is just as important as mental health which should go hand in hand but currently don't.

See Me – the stigma of mental health disability does not mean human rights should be abused as well.  If you have cancer your human rights are not abused (unless you can't get drug treatment).  So why so in mental health.

Right to expression, right to privacy, right to not be deprived of liberty – people who have mental health disability rarely have committed a criminal offence, but the stigma is horrendous.
