Mental health check-up not to be compulsory in China

Jun 14, 2011 - 4:51:45 PM
The draft law also provides rights of mental health patients, including the right to education, work, medical insurance, privacy and social assistance.

 
[RxPG] Beijing, June 14 - Mental health examination of Chinese people would not be compulsory and could be done at the discretion of the patient's guardians, says a new draft mental health law.

The legislative affairs office of the government has published the full text of the draft law on its official website to seek public feedback, the People's Daily reported.

According to the draft law, mental disease diagnosis should be conducted on a voluntary basis.

It also states that it was the responsibility of authorities to send homeless people suspected of suffering from mental disorders to mental health institutions.

They can be discharged from hospitals at any time at the discretion of their guardians.

The draft law also provides rights of mental health patients, including the right to education, work, medical insurance, privacy and social assistance.

The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention has said there were over 100 million people affected by mental illness in China, with 16 million listed as severely ill.
