We are approaching Hallowe'en (October 31st), and two supermarket chains decided to launch some suitably scare costumes. Naming them Mental Patient and Psycho Ward has unfortunately proven to be a mistake. In my opinion, children should be taught to be understanding and empathetic towards people with mental health issues, which can often not be seen from the outside. How often do I have to say: You break a leg, and it takes a few weeks to heal, and nobody else is much affected. You break your mind, and it can take a lifetime (if ever) to heal, and all around you are affected.
