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
