A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Megan, a 16­ year­ old ACLU of Nebraska client, shares her heartbreaking story of solitary confinement:

"My cell was about the size of a queen­-sized bed. There was a small bed, a desk and a chair. There was no counselor to talk to about what I was going through. I was only able to talk to my mom every few days, sometimes for only three minutes. While I was at Geneva, I was in a constant state of depression. I had anxiety attacks and when I tried to get help for them, no one cared. While I was there, at least two girls attempted suicide and many others talked about it. I can honestly say that for the first time in my life, I thought about hurting myself too. Just like at Madison, I spent a lot of my time alone, confined to my cell, desperate for anything that reminded me of my old life. At different times while I was locked up in Madison and Geneva, I was not allowed talk with my lawyers and my family. Thankfully my family fought back to get me out and to help me share my story. "
