My father was there. I remember visiting him, and what the drugs did to him in the few times he came home. He finally committed suicide. I'm convinced that most of the people in mental institutions are there because they showed their spiritual talents to the wrong people at the wrong times. Very good thing that things are a little different now or I might well have ended up there too. Instead I've made a big difference for the world in the area of technology, and continue to do so as I link that with Spirituality. I am incredibly impressed with the soul that goes by the name Teal, who managed to heal herself despite the system, and now teaches this healing to others even as she reveals her authentic self.
