The Supreme Court today asked the Centre to frame guidelines for rehabilitation of persons who have been cured of their mental illness, observing that the issue was “very sensitive”.

A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar observed that after mentally ill persons are cured, not even their family members are willing to take them back home.

“It is a very, very sensitive issue. You (Centre) should apply your mind. When a person goes to a mental asylum and after treatment he is cured, no body is willing to take him back to home. You (Centre) should think over it,” the bench, also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul, said.
