The number of involuntary psychiatric Hungary shockingly high, and in many cases is not justified, it is the experience of the human rights organization that deals specifically with violations of the psychiatric exploring.
Do not think that the involuntary psychiatric practice is rare in our country (!) On the basis of official data psychiatric institution ordained of treatment in 2014, 25 907 cases were made, for example. ( "On ordering" it is when the emergency treatment in spite of that will happen.)
Is it really the case that it becomes a serious veszélyeztetővé each year tens of thousands of human behavior that there is no alternative but depriving them of their liberty spot basis delivered to psychiatry? The Citizens Committee human rights organization Human Rights called very much a case had met when he was initiated because of a family dispute, child custody cases, property or inheritance dispute with the emergency psychiatry transport - so there was no question that it would have been delivered to individuals constitute a serious threat, but so because of "psychiatric history" it has already started disadvantage to those disputes.
In fact, there are cases when a person self or danger to the public and therefore must be isolated from the environment, so as not to damage others. The problem arises that in many cases, referral to a doctor sets out to did not see the person, so it could not be held that behaved really a threat or not.
According to the latest media news fifth day held a closed ward of a hospital in Bela pod Pomázi Gálfi Louis, the hysteresis city's apartment Friday afternoon police action, 72-year-old fetters evicted disabled - a great example of psychiatric kényszerbeutalások often unjust and degrading practices. And the case is far from unique: Defenders of the park and also we heard regarding evictions occurred in suspicious circumstances forced psychiatric hospital deliveries. In many cases, not to mention that never go public.
Much remains to be done to ensure that mental health should be an area that is free of systematic human rights violations - and this is not primarily a question of money. The involuntary psychiatric respect of Hungary could use a thorough change in the law, which would take the front of the abuse.
