Vol 16 1 Abstract Through out the world people with mental illness are denied their basic human rights, especially the right to access treatment, rehabilitation and appropriate mental health care UNUN People with mental illness PWMI and their families experience discrimination and exclusion from economic and social activities.
Due to stigma, PWMI and their families are often ridiculed and isolated, trapping them in a cycle of poverty. A lack of access to information about their rights and support to exercise these rights perpetuates and deepens this marginalization.
People with disabilities also do experience stigma, discrimination and social exclusion. However, the situation, in the case of people with disabilities has improved in many countries through CBR initiatives.
Introduction Mental illness is not a personal failure, it happens to most of us at one time or the other in life. Mental, behavioural and social health problems are an increasing part of health problems in the world. Worldwide, nearly million people have mental or behavioural disorder WHO The number of PWMI will increase substantially in the coming decades for the following reasons.

The disability in psychiatric illnesses is dynamic being influenced by the nature of illness, phase of the illness, treatment status and social support network available to them.
PWMI are treated as second-class citizens with no adequate facilities or provision from the government. As a result, they face chronic ill health and the families experience economic and social burden.
In certain cases this leads to social destitution. Goal of Inclusion of people with mental illness in the CBR programme: PWMI participate in societal activities, having access to generic services as well as appropriate support and which they consent to.

CBR and people with mental illness Development and changes in the concept of CBR over the last two decades has influenced the thought of inclusion of mental health in CBR programmes.
The CBR strategy shifts rehabilitation interventions to homes and communities of people with disabilities. Basic services are provided or facilitated by CBR workers who are minimally qualified non professionals but who are highly qualified change agents. The main goal of rehabilitation has become broader and focuses beyond the individual, to the family and communities in which people live.
CBR recognizes that breaking down barriers to inclusion in society is as important to the mission of the CBR programme as is the functional rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities.
Thus the universal mission of CBR is: To enhance activities of daily life of disabled persons 2. To create a situation in which the community of the disabled persons, participates fully and assimilate ownership of their integration in to the society.
