If a community is suffering such severe challenges that are impacting them mentally over generations, over hundreds of years; if the ways of mentally exploiting them are so easy and accessible to all, this means that it is not they who are experiencing mental imbalance but society that is attacking their mental justice and stability. It is important that society understands their mental health as part of mental justice, of Constitutional Rights, of Human Rights, of environmental justice, of sexual justice, of leadership, participation and social development with community agency, so as to reject such easy violations of their mental justice.
