CARNIVAL REVELERS FROM PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTE PARADE IN RIO DE JANEIRO.
FOR RELEASE WITH STORY BC-LIFE-BRAZIL-CARNIVAL - Revelers from a mental institute parade in colorfully-dressed carnival outfits through a Rio de Janeiro street. For many, Rio's famous Carnival is a chance to indulge in four days of drunken partying but some of the city's doctors see a relaxed samba parade as great therapy for their mentally-disturbed patients. Doctors at Rio state university's Psychiatry Institute (IPUB) say that Carnival, an essential part of Brazilian culture, should be for everyone and insist the group spirit of a street parade, with its music and dancing, really boost their patients' self confidence and social integration. Picture taken February 25.
