Expert opinion on proposed change in Ukrainian mental health legislation
Legal changes have been suggested at the Ukrainian Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, with regards to compulsory psychiatric treatment that severely infringe on the rights of persons with mental illness and are in direct violation with the international commitments of Ukraine.
In order to help make sure that these changes are not accepted by the Verkhovna Rada "Human Rights in Mental Health-FGIP" has decided to send a detailed analysis to all those responsible in Ukraine, including chairs of various committees of the Verkhovna Rada.
