Juba, South Sudan
People with a mental illness at Juba Central Prison are held in separate cells at night, but during the day mingle with the general prison population.
In areas of crisis—in failed states, in refugee camps, in countries where the infrastructure has collapsed—the mentally ill are frequently condemned to neglect or lives of misery. Disregarded in parts of the world by government and the aid community, sometimes far from family support networks, the mentally ill can lead isolated lives, subject to ill treatment.
