A miracle from a violation of human rights

A 48 years old woman from Gianyar, has function normally in community. She makes offering and sell them in a market near by her house. She was chained by her family for 6 years at her own yard. With a continuing help from the institute, today she can contribute to her family and being the model for a successful integrated community mental health. A condition where no one ever think and have hope for it. Together we can break the stigma with dignity.

“All over the world, people with mental illnessĀ are subject to poor-quality care and violations of their human rights. Our government and mental health services fail to integrate evidence-based treatment and practices, resulting in poor recovery outcomes”, said Professor Luh Ketut Suryani as she start to smile after seeing the miracle result of the institute work at Gianyar regency. “We can not just rely on government and hospital for mental health treatment. It is critical to assess and improve quality and the observance of human rights in order to change this situation”, add Dr Cokorda Bagus Jaya Lesmana after reviewing the assessment of the institute for their patient in community.
