Abandoned by husband, Bareilly woman wants to live in mental hospital, help other inmates

Abandoned by husband, Bareilly woman wants to live in mental hospital, help other inmates
- Bareilly: In a poignant reminder of just how mental illness is seen in India, a woman whose family refused to take her back said she wanted to stay on at the Bareilly mental hospital where she “felt more protected”. She has been living in the facility, intermittently, for nearly two decades being treated here and pronounced as cured. The 55-year-old woman, who is a graduate, now wants to spend her time teaching inmates and helping officials of the institution.The matter came to light nearly two months after the Supreme Court said that it favoured rehabilitation norms for the mentally challenged and their release from hospitals after they are cured.
