This was written by a fellow Guider:

We are all human-
Behind the walls of psychiatric hospitals ('the loony bins') exist the people that have been labelled with mental disorder that by some have been defined as insane.
But where do you draw the line between sanity and insanity?
Yes we are all different, we have a different amount of cells in our body and different coloured hair and eyes and skin. But when it comes to it, when you strip away everything, what's left is a skeleton, the stability the very structure of each and everyone of us.
We may all be individual beings with our own views and perceptions but inevitably we are all the same - human.
Therefore, inside all of us we hold both sanity and insanity, there is no separation or line dividing those two words they aren't two different types of people and It doesn't make anyone less of a person if they are under the mental health services.
So just think before you put down or judge. It lurks in all our bones. Whether with a mental health problem or not, if a heart is still beating then they are alive and every beating heart deserves equality because at the end of the day, yes we are all different but we are all the same too - human.
