Unfortunately, the mental health system is one of the most neglected aspects of the Israeli healthcare system. Many people are even more ignorant about their rights within the mental health system than they are about general healthcare rights.
As part of our on-going collaboration with Kol-Zchut, we are proud to have translated and published a Rights Guide for the Mentally Ill and Their Families. While a number of the links in the guide still lead to Hebrew content, it is an easy-to-read, critical and unique resource of information that was not previously available in English. You can either view the guide below or click here to follow an external link.
Not familiar with AACI’s Shira Pransky Project?
AACI’s Shira Pransky Project was founded to help English speakers in Israel better navigate the Israeli healthcare system and make use of the rights and services that are out there.
