RESEARCH | Karapatang Pang-Tao at Pagiging Relihiyoso: The Role of Religiosity/Spirituality and Human Rights in Mental Health and Life Satisfaction

This study sets out to examine the relationship of human rights and mental health, specifically, to describe the Filipinos’ level of perceived mental health status, perception of what rights the government should afford to its citizens, perceived importance of the freedom to practice one’s religion, and religiosity/spirituality, and how these factors are related to life satisfaction. Moreover, it also seeks to determine the relationship between Filipinos perception on what rights the government should provide and perceived mental health status. This study contributes to the limited body of knowledge regarding the nexus between mental health and human rights particularly in the Philippine context.
