Human rights of the mentally ill in Indonesia
I. Nurjannah, J. Mills, T. Park and K. Usher
Around the world the mission continues to try to improve the treatment, care, and human rights of people with mental illness. Findings from this Indonesian grounded theory study include profound descriptions of how human rights abuses, poverty, and lack of access to affordable and quality mental health care collide with cultural practices, ineffective mental health policy implementation, and the decision-making processes of professionals and non-professionals regarding individuals with mental illness. Community and professional education about mental health and illness, mental health resourcing and development, and good mental health policy is a critical issue. This is needed to assist nurses, doctors and family members to overcome archaic practices such as prolonged seclusion, shackling, discrimination and stigma regarding those with mental illness. I commend the researchers for this study.
