Principles of medical law which can be implemented in all areas of medical activity, are limited in the area of mental health. When the principle of the autonomy and the right to self determination are limited, this limitation should be justified and under strictly regulated conditions. Beside taking care of the right to self-determination, one should also have inside respect of the patients right to protection, right to good care and right to development. For the purpose of the proper and complete care of the psychiatric patients, there is a necessity for the adequate institutional frame. This, however, requires additional investments into the health system.
