Sup Travellers?! People at mental hospitals are usually not taken very seriously by society because they are considered crazy. Most of them are actually crazy but that's not the point. If a person at a mental hospital tells you something crazy then it's only fair that you consider what they say as crazy. Am I right? Because of this, mentally ill people are the most vulnerable people in society. No one believes them. However a 40 year old ex-patient at the Little Brook Hospital is exposing the truth and informing the world that sometimes the craziest people at mental hospitals aren't the patients.

In an interview with BBC, the 40 year old woman estimates that she was raped 60 times while at Little Brook Hospital in Dartford, Kent by a care worker. She was preyed on for a year by a senior staff member who would sneak into her room for sex and groom her with gifts such as Valium, cigarettes and chocolate. She even got a sexually transmitted disease. She brands the hospital as a  “playground for predators”. She was paid £100,000 compensation for her ordeal in 2003 and 2004. She said: “The mentally ill are the most vulnerable in society in terms of being abused and having themselves believed. It’s an open playing field for predators in that environment.

Her name hasn't been released to the press for the sake of protecting her identity but for names sake we'll just call her Catherine. She was admitted to the hospital after she had a ­breakdown following a decade-long abusive relationship. When she was released back in 2004 she told a nurse and the information was then transferred to the police. Police charged the care worker on four counts of sexual abuse. He pleaded guilty in 2008 to one act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a patient and was given a 12-month sentence, suspended for two years.

It makes you wonder doesn't it? Was she the only one at the hospital being raped? She was the only one who spoke out but you never know if there were other victims. I won't doubt that there were others though. He seems like a very very sick man. Catherine described the ordeal in an exclusive video posted on the Mirror UK. You can check out the video here. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
