I think the make people more scared on purpose everybody fear the mental ill hell they have even took away peoples Constitutional rights. Beside Helping there making thing worse on everybody now nobody wants to come forward about there illness or get help cause of the way they will be treated and the way there rights are being take away..They should be educating the people and stopping this really sad to see them cover everything up and push under the rug .. Stay strong and stand up for your self and your rights cause the way thing are going freedom will be a thing of the past
