In one sense, we are all mentally afflicted, in the sense that everybody's mind is illusioned by some desire or ambition. Whatever our desire or ambition, our mind carries our self to a next life that will facilitate fulfilling that desire. The Bhagavad-gita describes yoga as that process by which we free the mind from all conditioning and all illusions. So even the mentally ill or disabled can perform this yoga. The speaker of Bhagavad-gita describes the yoga to be engaging all the senses including the mind in focusing on the Absolute Truth by kirtan (Sanskrit term for chanting of God's names).
My understanding of reincarnation is that your frame of mind in this life effects how your next one. Those with disabilities and mental illness cannot help their frame of mind. Are they therefore doomed to a less desirable future existence?
The Hindu Perspective

What is Takeyya? Is it okay for Muslims to lie?
Where did Jesus go after his baptism, is it as according to Mark 1:12-13 or John 1:35-2:1-2. They both have been chosen by the council of Nicea over thousands of gospels and thought to be inspired by the Holy Ghost. Isn't this a contradiction?
Why does the Messiah have to come twice? Couldn't Allah have two different souls to accomplish the missions of delivering the Gospel and be the End Times Messiah? Was he short of supply?
Leonard Woolly (etc) found that the flood was local and hit only 4 major cities. This matches the Quran; only the disbelievers of Noah's time were punished. So yet again archeologically the Bible has been proven false. Are you still a Christian?
Would it be immoral NOT to kill a baby if god commanded it?
