People with mental illness deserve better

Bangladesh has a large number of people with mental illness who are either abandoned by their own families or are lost. Often we see such people wandering in the streets of Dhaka. I urge the government to employ a team to find out these people and provide them with special care and treatment. If proper care is ensured, there is a possibility that many of them may return to normal life. They are fellow human beings, and we have an obligation to treat them as such.
