Sri Lanka: Mental Health Legislation, Regulations and Implementation Guides

This section contains ‘stand alone’ mental health legislation as well as general health and disability legislation, where these have integrated mental health issues in a substantial way.  The absence of ‘stand alone’ mental health legislation or the absence of general health or disability legislation covering mental health in a substantial way, does not mean that mental health is not at all covered in a country’s general health or disability legislation.

 This section also includes, ordinances, directives, regulations, implementation guides for legislation and other similar legislative instruments.
