Already approved in the House, the Senate, a bill replacing the term "insanity" with "mental disorder". The text also ensures that people with such a disease when they are subjected to medical examination, have the right to be examined by a board comprised of most psychiatrists. This project (PLC 106/09) was approved on Thursday (11) Commission on Human Rights and Participative Legislation (CHR). The next step will occur in the processing of your Social Affairs Committee (SAC).

The proposal adds a paragraph to Law 10,216 of 2001, which states that mental disorder means "mental illness in general" and should replace the term mental alienation. According to the author of matter, Congressman Jutahy Junior (PSDB-BA), this step is necessary because "occur in practice, misunderstandings and distortions about the term" insanity ".

Besides the right to be examined by a board with a majority of psychiatrists, the text also states that people with mental illness when undergoing a medical examination, have the right "to obtain the necessary technical resources to the development of diagnosis and have their disorder Mental properly classified and clarified in accordance with internationally accepted medical standards. "

Jutahy argues that such measures are necessary to ensure more accurate diagnoses and better health care in this population. He says "Register cases, more frequent, summaries of medical reports in which the mental disorder is not properly classified and explained."

The report on the project, the CHR, was in charge of Senator Ataídes Oliveira (PSDB-TO).
