She went on to say that when she went ahead to seek help from “the institution”, considering her mental health was deteriorating, she wasn’t given any. “I remember this conversation like it was yesterday, because they said, ‘My heart goes out to you, because I see how bad it is, but there’s nothing we can do to protect you, because you’re not a paid employee of the institution.'”
Meghan also went on to point out a picture that was taken on the exact day that she was having suicidal thoughts.
