Şehnaz is deconstructing the top-down medical approach that continues to dehumanize individuals with mental disabilities in Turkey by intervening at the individual, institutional and national policy levels. The RUSIHAK model empowers individuals with mental disabilities and their families by helping them become decision-makers, bringing full citizenship to a strategically important group that has faced systematic discrimination, social isolation and poor quality of life.
