I have been forced to take psychiatric medication since 2 years by my parents and family members. I am a well-educated person and do not need any psychiatric medication because I am absolutely normal. I was even forced and bitten by local gundas hired by my parents and admitted to a psychiatric hospital. I was released after 1.5 months consecutively. My question is can I file a case against my parents for this forced medication?

Yes, you can file a case against your parents for forcing you to take psychiatric medicine against your will. Your consent really matters. It is a violation of human rights. It is also a form of gender violence since it usually involves mental abuse, emotional blackmail, and coercion from either the family or society. If it a case where you are being abused for your sexuality or sexual orientation then you should contact some organization dealing with the LGBTQ community. You should seek help from such an organisation who would be able to help you out to take legal action against your parents and also help you out in coping with the mental and physical abuse you have been through. There are various other NGOs as well. You can also lodge an FIR against your parents for the same at a police station.

You can consult our legal experts in India who will guide you in your matter.
