"Yayasan Galuh Rehabilitation Center is an impoverished mental health facility based in Bekasi, Indonesia, that hosts over 250 patients. Most come from poor families no longer interested in managing their condition, or are unable. Some patients are homeless, deposited after being taken off streets by police. ... Over one-third of the patients are shackled in chains." (National Geographic Photo Contest)
