    Same things that get you committed now, really.
    The asylum might have changed, but the inmates haven't.
    Nor have those who would have put them there to begin with.

    When I was just turned 18 my mum went on yet another visit to the depression ward at the local mental hospital. One Sunday afternoon my dad and I visited. Previously I was too young to be allowed in to visit the ward. It was a lot like a college dorm except the rooms' doors had smaller doors built in, in case the occupants locked themselves in. Suicidal tendencies, you know. I talked and played board games with several of the residents, and I even danced with a girl not much older than myself. She was pretty cool. We were there for about three hours. Then my mum asked me what I thought. I told her the residents weren't much different from people on the outside except that they knew they had problems and were trying to solve them. The next day when my mum saw her psychologist, she told him what I had said. "Your son is a very wise young man", he told my mother.
