Ex. Eduard (diagnosed with schizophrenia) was institutionalised several times.

Tem algo a ver com internação compulsória de viciados em drogas?

Hey there, Zumstein.

It not quite true. Anyone who is considered vulnerable is institutionalized by his or her family, friends or legal representatives.
Regardless of being schizophrenic or a drug additic, the institutionalization occurs when a severe mental disorder is diagnosed in time.
A vulnerable is someone who is not able to take care of himself / herself.

The institutionalization is more forceful than the hospitalization.
Involuntary or civil commitments (a.k.a. Sectioning) are examples of institutionalization.

- Hospitalized x Institutionalized.
