Photo by @hammond_robin for @onedayinmyworld “I think that by freeing people from the institution we and society as a whole, have become richer.” 83 year old Stjepan Getto lived in an institution for people with mental heath conditions for 27 years. In 2014 he moved into an apartment in the town of Osijek, Croatia. He receives support from assistants from the institution sometimes, but is mostly independent. “As long as I am able, I have a wish to do something and to contribute in some way, so that my life would have meaning. I think what we accomplished is good for everyone. For the people who have been institutionalized, for people who worked with them, and for the community as well.”

Rehabilitation cannot take place behind the high walls of an institution. In four years, 172 out of 200 people have moved from ‘Home for the Insane’ in Osijek, Croatia, into apartments. Staff have trained to serve as assistants in the community. For many beneficiaries it is the first time they’ve experienced true freedom. This facility in Osijek is the only one out of 26 in the country to implement the UN convention to deinstitutionalize.

Emmi Beary @emmikaybee
emmikaybee commented 5 days ago
This isn’t as black and white as it seems. I’m a psychiatrist and worked in a US state hospital. Many of the patients I saw there were too debilitated and lacked the resources needed to function in the community. This state hospital provided them with jobs, therapy, medications, programming, allowing them the opportunity for both the freedom and structure they needed. Most of the people there would attending their commitment hearings just to beg not to be placed in the community. Since de-institutionalization in the U.S., criminalization of the mentally illusion a new huge problem. Many of these individuals now live in prison and are not treated appropriately. I think there needs to be a better “happy medium” found for those who have the resources to thrive in the community and those who lack that and instead thrive in an institution. We have made so much progress from those being chained up and abused, but we are not there yet.
