Former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, Professor Paul Hunt has issued a message of support to the Mental Health Rights Campaign's call on the Health & Social Care Board to include mental health in 'Choose Well'. Choose Well is a government public information campaign which provides information about where to go for medical treatment. Currently no information about mental health is included in Choose Well.

Professor Hunt commended the work of the Mental Health Rights Campaign groups and stated;

“For people in mental health crisis, it is crucial that they are able to get help quickly. Having clear information about where you can access care for a health condition is a vital part of a State’s obligation to ensure it is realising the human right to an adequate standard of health. I strongly commend the groups involved with the Mental Health Rights Campaign in their work to ensure information is made available as widely as possible for those with mental health issues."
