Amendments to legislation on psychiatric assistance

April 6, 2011

The President signed Federal Law On Amendments to the Russian Federation Law On Psychiatric Assistance and Guarantees of Citizens’ Rights in Providing It, and the Civil Procedure Code of the Russian Federation.

The law is aimed at creating adequate guarantees of rights and freedoms for citizens with psychiatric disorders – first and foremost, their right to judicial protection.

The Federal Law brings Russian legislation concerning psychiatric assistance in line with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, as well as the established principles and rules of international law.

The law was prepared in accordance with the ruling of Russia’s Constitutional Court of February 27, 2009.
