Are real mental institutions similiar to those portrayed in the movies?? I've never been committed to a mental institution and never visited one, and I'm wondering if it's anything like the way it is in the movies, Cuckoo's nest, Girl Interrupted...umm K-pax For those of you who've been there, what is it really like?? Do they trap you in a room if you're unstable? Do they let you have outdoor time? Do they force feed you meds?
