      As a person who worked with kids at a group home. There is a lot more to it then being bored! Typically mental health conditions warrent mental health therapy. A lot more than just your judgments go into these kids back stories.

        As an employee of this particular hospital, I can say you are entirely correct. Each person who comes through those doors has their own unique circumstances and motives.

      Confidentiality laws say that no one can tell you that. Sorry.

    Maybe they were denied medical care, or the care was hurtful.

      In case you weren’t aware, Acadia is a mental hospital not a medical one.
