AbstractThis paper focuses on the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists ( and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and shows that both declarations are mutually supportive, but also different. It highlights the role of each declaration in the building of a better world globally, and the need need to focus on ethics-based education and training for promoting and reaffirming human rights in community mental health services.
