Although I do not praise people with mental disabilities entirely, they have spent a lot of time and efforts on things that were not beneficial very much or at all and consequently they were exhausted. In fact, some of them continued running hospitals in spite of vaious difficulties, including suffering themselves, to a miximum extent and others passed away earier than what was expected. I believe, we should at least record what has been done. I believe their efforts have made some results - more than nothing. I think even though some people criticize such "reforms" or tried to stay away from them, they also recognise their achievements to some extent. Some things - although it is difficult to evaluate them - have been done and I believe that should be also recorded.

And I believe now is the time for us to do such recordings. I discussed it in the long interview (Tateiwa and Amada 2010) of Ars Vivendi Vol. 3, which features mental disabilities and mental health.

Most of the people who I have focused on were born in the 1920s and 1930s. As I mentioned before, some of them passed away in last several years. In the application for grants-in-aid for scientific research (A) I wrote, I insist that many things be forgotten and lost forever unless we interview its related people or gather related materials now. I also feel those people would like to talk about themselves, or would like us to record their lives, although they also have some hesitation in talking about themselves. I think such people who had hesitation or self suppression and kept quiet before, now begin to write about themselves or began to talk to us about themselves. They might feel that unless they take any action, all important and necessary records or information will be lost. I think this must lead to several publications concerning the theme in these years. In that sense, now is the good time to record their lives. In other words, we will lose the records unless we record them now.

However, actions have not been taken enough. Actually, there have been few previous studies on the theme. One of the reasons is that many people do not think that there can be such research. In addition, the theme has fractiousness.

The difficulties the theme has are, I think, inevitable. ...
