Abstract and Keywords
The right to choose one’s health care setting is not upheld in some jurisdictions and for some populations. A case in point is Israel, where people with mental illnesses are not allowed to choose a hospital for their psychiatric admission when that is needed, but are only admitted to a hospital in their residential catchment area. This is in contrast to Israelis with other illnesses, who can access a variety of hospitals. The authors have contested this governmental practice in public and in court, and are lobbying for legislative change to this discriminative practice. Such human rights advocacy is relevant and applicable to many jurisdictions, and lessons learned from the Israeli process are shared in this chapter and will be shared in the future elsewhere based on progress with these legal procedures.
Dahlia Virtzberg-Rofe' is a doctorate candidate at Tel Aviv University, a literary editor, and an advocate for human rights of people with mental health challenges in Israel.
Tzviel Rofe' is a human rights activist, writer and lecturer, who founded the mental health consumer movement in Israel.
