Letters from the State Hospital is a great blog. This reblogged post is about life in a US mental hospital. A staggering number of patients admitted to these hospitals commit suicide within an of month discharge. Most were not suicidal on admission. This post is a peek into why state mental hospitals end up killing patients instead of helping them.

It’s a shame that treatment for mental illness especially in these state hospitals haven’t changed much over the years! Makes you wonder do they really want to help people.
It’s gotten worse with the rise in homelessness. There has been a boom for mental services provided by the prison industrial complex.
