Welcome to the institute!
Mental takes place in psychiatric hospital where 4 young people end up for different reasons. All of them have some serious issues going on - 3 tried to kill themselves and one is suffering from bad mixed drug abuse problem.
Treatments seem to be working, but after all new friendships cure better than any drug. But when you get out of the mental institution are you normal again?
Mental was written together with people who have long mental illness backgrounds. The characters are fiction but the script is based on true stories.
