  • Priya Sepaha, priyasepaha

Abstract

The offenders who are accused of horrendous crimes when under the influence of mental disorders should be first identified for mental disease by a competent psychologist. There are a lot of variants of mental diseases. However, unfortunately, they are all generally categorized as same. There is a serious need to recognize and classify them properly.

All stakeholders: advocates, judges, social workers, the police and doctors not only need to know about different mental diseases and legal provisions, but also need to be aware of treatment options available to the mentally ill persons charged with criminal acts.
