MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMME
The National Mental Health Programme came into existence in 1982. However, due to various reasons the Programme was not effectively implemented. In the year 1989, Sheela Barse a Social Activist filed a writ petition in the Hon’ble Supreme Court against Union of India and others regarding jailing of the mentally ill in West Bengal.
The Hon’ble Supreme Court gave certain directions to all the States in the country. In response to this, an affidavit on behalf of the Haryana Govt. was filed by the then Chief Secretary, in which the directions of the Hon’ble Court were accepted and agreed to be implemented. The Indian Lunancy Act of 1912 and 1977 were repealed and the Mental Health Act of 1987 was accepted. The State Govt. broadly accepted the recommendations, made by the commission appointed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, on the mentally ill in jails in West Bengal.
