Although the site is a work in progress as of now, it already offers several educational resources including a digital booklet that Monirul has composed to explain the United Nations’ Principles for the Protection of Persons with Mental Illness and the Improvement of Mental Health Care in easily understandable language.

We would like to thank Monirul for this impressive undertaking and we wish this project all the best in the future.
