Beautiful Madness

"Nia was too beautiful to be in a psychiatric ward. That's what everyone secretly felt, including the blunt, unsentimental nurses. She was willowy and dark eyed not just blandly attractive like teenagers can be. Her parents had delayed signing her into the ward on a section for as long as possible. They couldn't bear the thought that their beautiful girl was going mad."

This story, based on a true case, appears in this months Prospect Magazine.
