A person with a mental disorder is held in a cell at the Penuh Warna Griya Cinta Kasih Foundation in Jombang regency, East Java, Thursday (3/10/2019). The foundation, chaired by Jamiin, runs a rehabilitation center for people with mental disorders. Currently, it has 265 residents.

People held in cages, their feet shackled. They reek of body odor because they do not bathe regularly. They develop a variety of diseases. They are exposed to further harm instead of receiving treatment.

This is not imaginary. It is real. It is not in the past and is happening today, perhaps even into the future. It is occurring not in a foreign land, but on our own soil. This is what people with schizophrenia in Indonesia are suffering.
