Attitudes to mental illness

Following on from my earlier post where I mentioned the poor conditions in mental health hospitals, Medicines, Animals and a Dream has a post here which made me sad and reinforced what I said.

As she said, would this happen to a patient suffering from any other kind of illness?

I haven't read his report, but from the newspaper comments there appears to be no mention of mental illness at all.

Not that I am really surprised by that.
