Scary CCTV Footage From Mental Hospital in Russia Must Watch
Mental health in Russia is covered by a law, known under its official name—the Law of the Russian Federation “On Psychiatric Care and Guarantees of Citizens’ Rights during Its Provision”; Russian, Zakon Possiyskoy Federatsii “O psikhiatricheskoy pomoshchi i garantyakh prav grazhdan pri yeyo okazanii”), which is the basic legal act that regulates psychiatric care in the Russian Federation and applies not only to persons with mental disorders but all citizens.An notable exception of this rule is those vested with parliamentary or judicial immunity.
Providing psychiatric care is regulated by a special law regarding guarantees of citizens rights. Due to this fact, it is acknowledged that functions of psychiatry are not limited to identifying and removing biological anomalies that cause “mental illnesses”, caring for patients and alleviating their sufferings, but they also apply to the scope of their civil rights.The passage of the law was one of the five conditions for the membership of the All-Union Society of Psychiatrists and Neuropathologists in the World Psychiatric Association. The law passed on 2 July 1992 and received the number 3185-1.
