"It was a scandal, Teleborian claimed."

"Mental health care is part of health and medical care. The basis of mental health care and social services for the mentally ill is that people with mental illness or a psychiatric disability should have the same rights and obligations as other groups in society. The Governments focus is for service, support and care to be provided in forms that are as open and normalised as possible. Services should be designed so as to support the independence and integrity of the individual." From the Swedish Government Mental Health Care Website - http://www.sweden.gov.se/sb/d/2950/a/25717.

 

Teleborian seems well out of kilter with the general thrust of current Swedish policy. On the other hand there are statistics that show the numbers of mental health in patients has remained constant since the 90's.
