Mental Health in China- Keep them Locked UP

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 24, 2010

I guess this is how China deals with the mentally ill. The communist party has all of that money, but do not seem want to help the less fortunate.

Man hospitalized after two years’ being chained
Wang Wei, a psychiatric patient, is confined by iron chains in a room in his hometown of Huangliang village, in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shaanxi province, June 23, 2010. Wang was chained up by his parents for fear he would injure children after his illness broke out two years ago. Wang got married in June 2005 but became psychologically disordered, beating his parents and wife, one month after the marriage. The newly-wedded wife’s complaint about his prostate disease made the introverted Wang even less talkative, manic and violent. [Photo/Asianewsphoto]
