Since the dawn of human civilization, mentally ill persons have received scant care and concern of the community because of their unproductive value in the socioeconomic value system. They have not only been neglected but received step motherly treatment from the health planners especially in the developing countries. It was the plea of progressive incorporation of the norms of human rights and liberal jurisprudence in the respective legal system of nation states that created the necessity and urgency of initiating appropriate steps for the care and treatment of mentally ill persons.

It is admitted on all hands that barring few exceptions, the mentally ill person deserves the same privileges as enjoyed by any other human being. However, the stigma, the residual disability and its intolerance, and more importantly the inability of the mentally ill to protest against exploitation, have all made the basic human rights of the mentally ill a major cause of growing concern.


The 1971 Declaration on the Rights of Mentally Retarded Persons:
This Declaration was adopted by the General Assembly on 20th December 1971, keeping in view the necessity of providing help to mentally retarded persons in order to enable them to develop their abilities and promoting their integration in the normal life.
