A shocking practice has been found in use against some mental health patients in Indonesia. Instead of medicine or other therapies, they are subject to chains and shackles.

From the article:
Quote
For years Sukidi's family shackled his feet because of his problems.

Like many who use such methods, his family comes from a poor background with only minimum access to health care services.

Sukidi was only brought to hospital after neighbours and village officials intervened.


Lord have mercy.  Cry

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
