Dignity and Death : Psychological well being in death

Om Prakash Singh

Abstract


Dignity in Mental Health is the theme of the World
Mental Health day 2015. While talking of dignity for
mentally ill persons another thought which comes to
mind is dignity of dying. Mario Puzo In Godfather
describes the death of Godfather at home in garden
with bright sunlight and playing children around

as caregiver and no loved one at sight. This scenario
is raising whole lot of questions regarding end of life
care provided by health care delivery system .
