Came across this haunting website about psychiatric patients and the lives they led before being committed. All information of inmates are gathered from their medical records and more heart-wrenchingly from their suitcases, discovered when the institution closed. Depressing and yet fascinating. I debated with myself and decided not to call them mentally-ill. That would be a great disrespect.
