In India, family bears the main burden of caring for such persons unlike in the developed world. The family members, particularly parents, are more affected by the condition.
BARRIERS AND SUPPORT TO IMPLEMENTATION Paliadelis et al, (2005), in their study outlined various barriers to family centered care. In his study, lack of understanding of the concept of family centered care, lack of guidelines and policies and hospital management misunderstanding the presence of family to mean less work for staff. Furthermore, inadequate staff coupled with time constraints which can translates into poor motivation due to work overload was also identified as a barrier to the success of family centered care. In other instances, parents are sometimes not interested in involving themselves in the care of their hospitalized children. Outdated nursing habits can also not be eliminated.
Families with children under the age of 16 receive domiciliary care.At the age of 16 They then receive disability allowance after they are means tested and they are unable to work because of their disability. (Citizens information, board 2010) There is sometimes a lot of stigma attached to us as service users when we are getting the disability allowance.New welfare payments have tried to give support in such a way that avoids stigma such as charity and means tested provision.

This is blatantly evident as the Philippine government has not created any specific laws about the orphans;
1.1 Introduction An orphanage is a housing institution dedicated to the care of orphans – children whose parents are dead or not capable or not willing to care for them. Organic/biological parents, and sometimes organic grandparents, are lawfully responsible for sustaining children, but in the nonexistence of these, no named godparent, or any other relatives willing to care for the children, they become a ward of the state, and orphanages are one way of providing for their concern, shelter and education. It is often used to explain institutions abroad, where it is a more accurate term, since the word orphan has a different definition in international adoption. Although many people assume that most children who live in orphanages are orphans,
There is lack of resource and access to health care facilities in remote areas. People who are in desperate need for treatment are often mistreated, violated and not given any guidance or help as to how to avail the facilities of mental health care. In developing countries, like India, people suffer on a large scale from common mental illnesses but even these are left untreated. Social stigmas attached to the concept of being mentally ill dissuade people from coming out and confessing about their illnesses. The Government of India has introduced several attempts to make sure that the necessary facilities can be availed of.
They do not however communicate with each other and nor do they comfort each other or attempt to understand one another. This is the greatest downfall of the family. Colonisation plays a role in how some members begin to perceive each other and India as a whole; as well as it lays the foundation for the sense of worthlessness each member of the family feels at different times.
