This folder contains information and photographs that were forwarded to MindFreedom. Akal was 21 when he was admitted to a mental health facility in December 2007. There he was chained to a bed and forcibly drugged. Thanks to the efforts of a concerned individual in Nepal, Akal is now no longer in this dire situation.
