It is laudable that the Mental Healthcare Act has had cross-party support, with both the UPA and NDA governments helping it along
The Mental Healthcare Act, 2017, which was passed by the Rajya Sabha in August 2016 and the Lok Sabha in March 2017, is a landmark law for many reasons. For the first time in our country, the Act creates a justiciable right to mental healthcare. This is fascinating because physical healthcare is not yet a statutory right! The right to mental healthcare is the core of the Act and represents the government’s attempt to address the neglect of this aspect of healthcare for decades.
