Living in Hell. Abuses against People with Psychosocial Disabilities in Indonesia

The report, “Living in Hell: Abuses against People with Pychosocial Disabilities in Indonesia”,examines how people with mental health conditions often end up chained or locked up in overcrowded and unsanitary institutions – without their consent – due to stigma and the absence of adequate community-based support services or mental health care. In institutions, they face physical and sexual violence; involuntary treatment, including electroshock therapy; seclusion; restraint; and forced contraception.
