Ugh what an absolutely shitty world we live in.
The historical treatment of mentally ill and differently/disabled people is heartbreaking.
Even as someone who only suffers from depression and anxiety, I’m l really lucky to have been born into the privileged life I have.
1982…1982?!?!?! Holy fuck
The bad thing is in the 80’s that was the norm. Plus at that time I think they still thought they were Mentally Retarded because they didn’t know what Autism was.
It’s like their life wasn’t hard enough already, so they punish them like this.
Is this actually real?
Watch crip camp on Netflix. Expose the shit buy you dont feel like crap at the end, nice documentary.
As a father of an autistic son, it breaks my heart..
This will just make them more insane. Mental illness sucks. I have it in my family. Some just can’t interact with normal people, you can’t just lock them up. There needs to be some sort of middle ground like a campus of some sorts, with good regulation so they can’t be mistreated. It sucks that even in my family they are violent, but not they are also mentally ill so they aren’t acting "intentionally".
1982?!? People live to their 70s-80s, that’s not even one person ago.
Not Spain, according to this website: https://allthatsinteresting.com/mental-asylums#3
I am autistic and honestly this physically hurt me to look at this. Not a lot of images, videos or articles, etc get to me. This did.
Autistic person here. You’ll never hear me say I was born in the wrong generation.
As some with Autism and that’s been in a mental hospital, it’s not good today either. Nowadays they beat you down mentally and treat you more like a disease to be cured.
There is a great BBC Documentary (Mental: A History of the Madhouse) outlining how very bad we have dealt with mental illness as a society in the past. Highly would recommend watching.
For a second I thought this was fake history porn… But holy shit
Fucking horrible…Honestly, I think this is why we should try alternative medicine, like CBD oil because at this point anything is better than this…
Geraldo Rivera investigated an institution down the street from my house called Letchworth Village in 1972. Such terrible conditions. The story was called “Willowbrook : the last great disgrace”. I guarantee this picture was a reality for many at places like this. The facilities closed their doors 25 years ago but nature has reclaimed a lot of the buildings
